Royals | Jason Vargas to throw 60 Wednesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:01:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) was supposed to throw 60 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, July 7, but that will be pushed to Wednesday, July 8, due to the doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) isn't commonly an option on FantasyScore due to his low strikeout rate of 5.40 batters per nine innings. Vargas really only holds fantasy value in AL-only leagues.

Royals | Greg Holland blew save

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:54:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland blew the save Tuesday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Holland picked up the win when the Royals scored four runs in the bottom of the inning.

Fantasy Tip: Holland blew a save for just the second time this season, but he has been bailed out in the bottom-half of the inning on both occasions. Holland remains a clear-cut elite closer.

Royals | Paulo Orlando hits grand slam

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:39:18 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Paulo Orlando hit a grand slam Tuesday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: It was just the second home run of Orlando's major league career, but he hit it in his first game since rejoining the Royals' roster. Orlando still isn't worth much consideration on FantasyScore, as owners will need to see consistent production.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain out again

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:57:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) is out for Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, July 7. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field again and hit ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is known for his speed, but he has struggled to get on base to utilize his quickness. Hitting at the bottom of the order also limits his daily value. Consider him a low-end outfield play on FantasyScore.

Royals | Alex Rios sitting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:10:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios isn't in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader Tuesday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays. OF Paulo Orlando will start in right field and hit sixth in the order against RHP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Orlando isn't of concern to fantasy owners, due to his .274 on-base percentage.

Royals | Joe Blanton to make start Saturday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 08:51:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Joe Blanton will make a spot start Saturday, July 11, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Blanton ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a tough matchup and would be a serious dice roll on FantasyScore.

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 08:09:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is out of the lineup Tuesday, July 7, in Game 1 of a doubleheader in favor of C Drew Butera.

Fantasy Tip: Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't in there for his bat and shouldn't be in your FantasyScore lineup.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain aggravated hamstring

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:58:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) aggravated his hamstring injury Sunday, July 5, which is why he's out Monday, July 6. However, manager Ned Yost said Cain will not miss the All-Star Game next week.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is likely just day-to-day as the team is being cautious heading into the All-Star break. Make sure to check if Cain is in the starting lineup this week before inserting him into your FantasyScore lineup.

Royals | KC-TB game in jeopardy

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:23:31 -0700

The game between the Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays is expected to be delayed Monday, July 6, although nothing is official.

Fantasy Tip: Although nothing is official, the scene in KC looks scary, and there have been thunderstorm and flash flood warnings. It might be wise to avoid using any players from this game in your daily lineups tonight.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain sitting out

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:37:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is primarily useful because of his speed, but he struggles to get on base and has his value severely limited when hitting at the bottom of the order. He's a sleeper that can provide you with some nice salary cap relief for the rest of your lineup.

Royals | Alex Gordon hitting second

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:31:55 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is hitting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) could be in this spot several more days with Mike Moustakas on the bereavement list. The lineup placement does give Gordon more upside on FantasyScore, though, and he should be seen as a potential value play tonight.

Royals | Mike Moustakas on bereavement list

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:48:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas was placed on the bereavement list Monday, July 6, and 3B Cheslor Cuthbert was called up from the minors in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be out several days at the most this week. Make sure to stay away from him for at least a few days on FantasyScore. In weekly leagues, sitting him out this week is the smart way to go.

Royals | Yordano Ventura could return Thursday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 09:09:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (elbow) will throw a side session Monday, July 6, rather than pitch in another rehab game, according to manager Ned Yost. Ventura could return against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. He's been wildly inconsistent this year and has dealt with several different nagging ailments. He owns a 4.68 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 12 starts this year. Ventura is a high-risk, high-reward starter on FantasyScore, but we don't recommend trusting him with a lineup spot in his first turn back off the DL.
