Royals | Jeremy Guthrie rocked again by Yankees

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:31:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie allowed 13 of the 16 batters he faced to reach base and 11 scored in a 14-1 loss to the New York Yankees Monday, May 25. He also walked three and allowed four homers in just one inning of work, and his record against the Yankees fell to 5-11.

Fantasy Tip: Guthrie ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) entered the game with a 4.92 ERA against the Yankees, and he was lit up yet again. He now owns an ugly 6.70 ERA for the year and should only be considered at FantasyScore when he draws the friendliest of matchups.

Royals | Salvador Perez not starting

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:45:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C Drew Butera will be the starting catcher for the Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return in the lineup in a game or two. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not been very productive in his limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Jason Vargas starting Tuesday

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:12:23 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) is scheduled to start against the New York Yankees Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been on the disabled list because of an elbow injury but looks to be ready to pitch again. Vargas is a risky option against the Yankees on FantasyScore since he has not pitched in a game for a few weeks.

Royals | Danny Duffy to be placed on DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:11:36 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy (shoulder) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see how long Duffy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) will be out of the rotation. Jason Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) will be activated from the disabled list and likely will take Duffy's spot in the rotation. Vargas is scheduled to pitch against the New York Yankees and may be a risky option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas back in action Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 15:03:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (clavicle) was back in the lineup Sunday, May 24, the day after being hit in the collarbone by a ball.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) should be fine from here on out, but as always monitor his progress in case there are side effects.

Royals | Salvador Perez has 10-game hit streak

Sun, 24 May 2015 15:00:15 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez extended his hitting streak to 10 games Sunday, May 24, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is on a roll at the plate, and that means he should be in your lineup as long as he's producing.

Royals | Alex Gordon dominates John Lackey

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:22:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon continued his dominance of St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Saturday, May 23. Gordon homered in the second inning to improve to 7-for-14 with two career home runs against Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this month, hitting for an average of just .239 in May. Gordon will remain a risky FantasyScore option as he has just four multi-hit games this month.

Royals | Edinson Volquez solid in shortened outing

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:14:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez allowed two runs in six innings Saturday, May 23, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Volquez surrendered three walks and four hits across the rain-shortened outing.

Fantasy Tip: Volquez's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) low strikeout rate of 6.34 batters per nine innings limits his FantasyScore potential. Volquez has also been benefiting from a BABIP of .230 and a home run to fly ball ratio of 3.5%. Volquez will be a risky play in his next start, Friday, May 29, against the Chicago Cubs.

Royals | Alex Rios closing in on rehab assignment

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:07:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (hand) may begin a rehab assignment in the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: Rios ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) landed on the disabled list after just 29 plate appearances. With his competition and colleagues now all warmed up, FantasyScore owners should give Rios some time to get caught up before investing.

Royals | Mike Moustakas leaves early

Sat, 23 May 2015 22:23:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (clavicle) took a hopping ground ball from St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina to the collarbone region. Moustakas stayed in the game two more defensive innings and an at-bat before eventually leaving in the fifth inning. He is considered day-to-day and was replaced by 2B/SS Christian Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Moustakas' status for the Royals' matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 24. He currently costs $5,000 (10.0% of cap) on FantasyScore and is an iffy play due to possible soreness or limited range of motion, given his price point. Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could be low-risk source of cap relief if Moustakas sits out Sunday.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson batting ninth

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:10:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson will start in right field and bat ninth in the order Saturday, May 23, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Paulo Orlando will be a bench option.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) can't provide much more than steals to FantasyScore owners. Dyson is a risky play with owners having to count on production from only one category.

Royals | Kendrys Morales launches a pair

Sat, 23 May 2015 06:45:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales hit home runs No. 5 and No. 6 and drove in all five runs during the Royals' 5-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is having a fine rebound season batting in the heart of the Kansas City lineup. He has 31 runs, 15 doubles and 37 RBI with a .305/.358/.506 slash line for the season. FantasyScore players have a nice second-tier first base option, and Morales sports a high floor, as he has posted bagels across the stat line just three times through his first 41 games.

Royals | Danny Duffy to be skipped

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:01:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy's (shoulder) spot in the rotation will be skipped because of shoulder stiffness. He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday, May 26. SP Edinson Volquez is now scheduled to start Saturday, May 23, while SP Yordano Ventura will start Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for any updates on Duffy's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) status over the next few days. Volquez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) are both scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals this weekend and could be risky option on FantasyScore against a solid offense.

Royals | Greg Holland back in the mix

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:27:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (neck) is available to pitch against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, May 20, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: Holland was unavailable Tuesday, May 19, due to a stiff neck. Now that he is back in the saddle, he should be started with confidence in all formats and remains a high-end closer.

Royals | Jason Vargas throws Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 21:42:22 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 19, and is scheduled to throw a simulated game Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) appears to be making progress in his recovery but likely will make at least one rehab start before he is able to return to the rotation. Owners on FantasyScore should ignore Vargas until he is able to pitch for the Royals again.
