Royals | Eric Hosmer scratched

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 19:13:49 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer came into the day with the longest active hitting streak in the majors at 16 games, four more than any other player in the league. The severity of this injury is not yet known, but those fantasy owners in leagues which allow daily moves should reserve him until he can return and prove his health in one full game without any setbacks.

Royals | Billy Butler hoping to stay in KC

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 19:12:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Billy Butler said Monday, July 21, that he is willing to renegotiate his deal for next season in order to say with the team. He has a club option for 2015 for $12.5 million, and since he has struggled this season it seems unlikely the team will not exercise that option. The buyout for the deal is $1 million. "If the option doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to renegotiate in any type of way. I've always said that," Butler said.

Royals | Billy Butler willing to rework deal

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 01:10:54 -0700

Although Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler believes his team should pick up the $12 million contract option on him for 2015, he is willing to renegotiate if it means staying with the Royals. "My numbers throughout my contract suggest they should (pick it up)," Butler said. "Maybe not the way I've necessarily played this year, but that's the reason you play a full 162 games. The evaluation is there. That's the reason why you have a track record."

Royals | Alex Gordon tests wrist

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 18:04:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) worked out Thursday, July 17, and it went well according to general manager Dayton Moore. Gordon will join the team in Boston, and the team is hopeful the outfielder will avoid a stint on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a fantasy league which is active during the shortened week, it might be best to hold off activating Gordon until he can officially prove his health in at least one full game. Daily fantasy league owners will want to avoid him, as there are plenty of other less risky plays on the board with a full slate of games.
