Royals | Will Smith excited for relief role

Kansas City Royals P Will Smith is enjoying his new role as a reliever, a role which is what got him recalled from Triple-A Omaha to the big leagues Tuesday, June 25. "I had to go down there and get some things straight to get back up here, so it feels good to be pitching good and get back up here," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Ned Yost indicated that a return to the rotation is not off the table at some point, but right now Smith is a member of the bullpen. As such, he has very little in the way of fantasy appeal except in the deepest of AL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.
