Royals | Edinson Volquez picks up victory

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 05:07:01 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez improved to 5-4 overall as the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins, 7-2, on Wednesday, June 10. Volquez reached the seven-inning mark for only the second time in his last nine starts. He scattered seven singles, walking two.

Fantasy Tip: Volquez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) and the rest of the Royals starters have shaken off a 2-9 slump that cost the team its American League Central lead, and the Royals are now back in first place. Volquez is a fairly safe start because of all the Royals hitting, but check his matchups before you put him in your FantasyScore lineup.

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 | 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 | Edinson Volquez drops appeal

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 10:44:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension, and he'll begin serving his suspension Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Volquez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was hit with the loss against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, and he'll miss his next turn in the rotation. It's unclear who will fill in for him this week, but the Royals will be facing the Detroit Tigers this weekend, so the spot starter won't come recommended at FantasyScore.

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:28:54 -0700
