Royals | Kendrys Morales on a roll

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 21:34:04 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales went 4-for-5 with a double, four RBI and three runs scored in a 15-7 win over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has two homers, eight RBI and six runs scored over his last three games, and he is on pace for 119 RBI this year. He is a solid option for the price at FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain streaking

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 21:28:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, three runs scored and a walk in a 15-7 win over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Sept. 3, extending his hitting streak to 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has 10 RBI and 11 runs scored during the streak, and the combination of his speed and pop at the plate makes him a solid option at FantasyScore most nights.

Royals | Mike Moustakas remains out of the lineup

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:48:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($5,300 10.6% of cap) is working his way back from a minor hamstring injury, but with a lefty on the hill Thursday, it provides the opportunity for him to receive another day of rest. He should return to the lineup Friday, Sept. 4. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief Thursday, although, he did have a big game Wednesday, Sept. 3, with a home run and four RBI.

Royals | No Alcides Escobar against Detroit

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:33:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. 2B Christian Colon is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns a .241/.302/.291 slash line over 87 plate appearances this season, and he should be viewed as low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday. Just know his upside is extremely limited. Make sure to avoid Escobar ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. Expect him back atop the Royals lineup Friday, Sept. 4.

Royals | Mike Moustakas feeling better

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:47:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) was given the second straight night off Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Detroit Tigers. "He's feeling well. Better," manager Ned Yost said.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Moose ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) reserved in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert posts first MLB HR

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:46:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Detroit Tigers, and he finished with a walk and four RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert hit his first major league homer, and he'll be a popular pick in FantasyScore down the stretch if he can keep up the power stroke.

Royals | Yordano Ventura blows away Detroit

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:46:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura allowed one earned run, five hits and a walk while matching a career high with 11 strikeouts Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Detroit Tigers in a win.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) was banished to the minors earlier in the summer, but that demotion appears to have lit a fire under him. He has turned in five straight quality starts and is unbeaten in eight straight outings with six straight successful decisions. Ventura also has at least six strikeouts in five straight appearances.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain suffers calf injury

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:20:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (calf) was removed from the game against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, Sept. 2, after fouling a ball off his calf. A team official said the injury was not serious.

Fantasy Tip: Before exiting the game, Cain ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a double, home run, three RBIs and two runs scored. Check back for further updates on his status.

Royals | Mike Moustakas has pulled hammy

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:38:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is dealing with a pulled hamstring, but manager Ned Yost is hoping Moustakas can return to the lineup in a day or so. Moustakas wanted to play Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Plan to make sure that Moose ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is back in the lineup in the next few days before throwing him into your FantasyScore lineup. Moustakas had a great month of August and could keep that rolling into the final month of the season. He's a solid play in daily formats once he's back in there.

Royals | Kelvin Herrera out with illness

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:28:19 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Kelvin Herrera (illness) has been infected with the chickenpox virus and could miss at least two weeks, according to team officials. An examination of Herrera Monday, Aug. 31, confirmed the results after Herrera left the team over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Even in a non-closing role for KC, Herrera was worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues because of his solid numbers in an excellent bullpen. Now that he could miss much of the final month of the season, he should be left to the waiver wire.

Royals | Alex Rios has chickenpox

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:19:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (illness) has been infected with chickenpox and could miss at least two weeks, according to team officials. Rios left the team over the weekend and flew to Kansas City, and an examination confirmed it Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: With only a month left in the regular season, Rios ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is unlikely to be of much use to his fantasy owners. Cutting him in deep mixed leagues is probably the right course of action. Jarrod Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and recently acquired Jonny Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) can offset the loss of Rios temporarily. Dyson is the better fantasy target for his speed.

Royals | Mike Moustakas out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:14:36 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Detroit Tigers. 2B Ben Zobrist is playing third and batting second against Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting just .189 against Verlander, and the left vs. right matchup provides the Royals the excuse to give "Moose" a night off. Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .346 average in the past week and hits .257 against Verlander, so he is a decent FantasyScore option.

Royals | Alex Gordon in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:09:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (groin) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and is in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. He is hitting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) will be a breath of fresh air to the team. Ordinarily advice would be to sit a hitter for a game or two until he gets his sea legs back, and this may apply here as well. It might take Gordon a few at-bats to get unwound.

Royals | Jonny Gomes acquired by KC

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:20:57 -0700

The Kansas City Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes from the Atlanta Braves Monday, Aug. 31. The return for the Braves is not yet known.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a good locker room guy with postseason experience, something which is way more important to his real team than to FantasyScore players.
