Royals | Ben Zobrist to make debut Thursday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:00:55 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is expected to start and hit sixth in the batting order in his debut with the Royals Thursday, July 30, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what position Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will play Thursday, but the switch-hitter can play both left field and second base, which could decrease the fantasy value of both Jarrod Dyson and Omar Infante for the foreseeable future.

Royals | KC acquiring Ben Zobrist

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:37:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is being traded to the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 28, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely fill in in left field until Alex Gordon is back from the disabled list, and he can also play second base and spell the offensively challenged Omar Infante. The move probably doesn't affect Zobrist's fantasy value all that much, but it may hurt the value of Jarrod Dyson the most.

Royals | Eric Hosmer crushing CLE pitching

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:32:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run, three runs scored and four RBIs Monday, July 27, against the Cleveland Indians. He is hitting .390 (16-for-41) with four home runs and 17 RBIs against the Indians this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is worth using in FantasyScore whenever he is facing Cleveland pitching.

Royals | Kendrys Morales leads AL in RBIs

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:31:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBIs Monday, July 27, against the Cleveland Indians. He now leads the American League with 68, tied with Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson.

Fantasy Tip: It's been quite the comeback for Morales ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), who has re-emerged as a must-start in FantasyScore. He has 11 RBIs against the Indians this season.

Royals | Johnny Cueto to start Friday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:20:32 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto will make his debut with his new team against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) proved his health by throwing eight shutout innings against the Colorado Rockies in his last start for the Cincinnati Reds. He's gaining fantasy value with the move to a more pitcher-friendly ball park, but a matchup against the Blue Jays Friday in Toronto may make it tough for him to return any value on FantasyScore.

Royals | Martin Prado may be option for Royals

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:07:34 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado could be a trade option for the Kansas City Royals, but the team is showing minimal interest in Prado at this point. The Marlins are willing to trade Prado if they receive the right deal.

Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) likely would be a utility player if he was traded to the Royals and probably would not see regular playing time. Prado should continue to see regular playing time if he stays with the Marlins and could be an option on FantasyScore against certain opponents.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert keeps hitting

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:31:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a double in a 5-1 win over the Houston Astros Sunday, July 26, and he has hit safely in all five games since being called up.

Fantasy Tip: The sample size is small, but Cheslor is hitting .333 with four RBI in the first five games if his major league career. Depending on his price tag, it could be worth taking advantage of Cheslor's hot start when he is added to the player pool at FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain breaks out of slump

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:26:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-1 win over the Houston Astros Sunday, July 26, recording his first multi-hit effort since July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had gone 3-for-21 in his previous five games, but he found his stroke Sunday. Cain's all-around production makes him a solid option at FantasyScore most days, and he is a great play against left-handed pitching.

Royals | Alex Gordon making progress

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:20:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (groin) is throwing and hopes to take swings off a tee this this week. "Baby steps," Gordon said Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is still several weeks away from returning, but on the plus side, he hasn't suffered any type of setback.

Royals | Yordano Ventura sharp Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:16:55 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura allowed one run on six hits and struck out five over seven innings in a win over the Houston Astros Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been hot and cold all year, and despite the solid outing, he could lose his spot in the rotation to make room for the newly acquired Johnny Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap). If he does stay in the rotation, he is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.

Royals | Johnny Cueto likely to start Thursday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:28:01 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto appears to be in line to make his first start with his new team against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is 3-1 with a 1.59 ERA through five starts this month and is 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA in five outings against American League teams this year. He remains one of the best FantasyScore starting pitching options available, regardless of the uniform he's wearing.

Royals | KC acquires Johnny Cueto

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:07:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Kansas City Royals have acquired SP Johnny Cueto and cash considerations from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Ps Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the change of scenery, Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) should continue to be viewed as an elite starting pitching option in FantasyScore. If anything, a move to the American League might help him, because he will call Kauffman Stadium home instead of the hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson not in the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:02:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, July 26. OF Paulo Orlando will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is sitting because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Orlando ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .273 with three home runs and 10 RBI this month and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Salvador Perez will be DH

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:01:20 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez will serve as the designated hitter against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, July 26, and is batting fourth in the lineup. C Drew Butera will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is in the lineup but is receiving a day off from the field. He is hitting only .197 this month but could still be a solid option on FantasyScore. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should not be a starting option for fantasy owners.

Royals | Eric Hosmer will sit out

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:48:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, July 26. 1B Kendrys Morales will start at first base and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Morales ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting .244 with three home runs and 17 RBI this month and could be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
