Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Royals | More on lineup change

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost attempted to jump start the offense by moving OF Alex Gordon back to the leadoff spot Tuesday, May 28, with OF Lorenzo Cain moving to the third spot. C Salvador Perez will likely move to the third spot in the order when he returns from the bereavement list, however. Gordon hit .391 with a .449 on-base percentage in 18 games at No. 3 since moving there May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been hitting well no matter where he's been in the lineup this year. While it might reduce the number of opportunities he has at driving in runs, it shouldn't affect his value much. Perez, on the other hand, has a chance to get going with a move to third in the order in front of Billy Butler.
