Royals | Chris Getz slumping

Kansas City Royals 2B Chris Getz is hitting only .216 and is 4-for-37 since hitting a home run April 16. 2B Elliot Johnson started over Getz Tuesday, May 7. "I'm going to start playing Elliot to keep him in the mix," manager Ned Yost said. "Mainly at second. We'll see how it goes. I'll go day to day with it. I want to get Getzie going a little more. He's not swinging the bat like I know he can." 3B Miguel Tejada also started over 3B Mike Moustakas, who is hitting .198 overall and .160 against lefties, Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is only worth considering for a roster spot in deep AL-only universes since Getz still seems to be Yost's primary second baseman in the long run.
