Kansas City Royals OF Justin Maxwell, who had a home run and two singles in his team's 9-6 win over the Boston Red Sox Friday, Aug. 9, may see more starts in the near future. It was just his fourth start since coming over from the Houston Astros. ''He's got the opportunity to change the game with one swing,'' Royals manager Ned Yost said. ''We'll keep running him out there.''

Kansas City Royals OF David Lough (quadriceps) is playing at 80-85 percent health, and he'll take the next two games off. Lough left the game early with right quadriceps tightness Sunday, Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Justin Maxwell, who has been platooning with Lough, will see a short-term boost. However, Jarrod Dyson could also factor in.

The Houston Astros acquired P Kyle Z. Smith from the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, July 31, in exchange for OF Justin Maxwell.
Fantasy Tip: Smith, only 20 years old, went 5-4 with a 2.85 ERA for Single-A Wilmington in 19 starts. He has a simple delivery and mainly relies on a low-90s fastball and an above-average curve. He'll need to improve his changeup to be successful as he moves up the minor league ladder. Smith might be an intriguing prospect with a ceiling of a mid-range starting pitcher, but it's too early to say.

Kansas City Royals OF Justin Maxwell is expected to share time in right field with OF David Lough.
Fantasy Tip: Lorenzo Cain's (groin) status may push Maxwell to center field for the short term. It's unclear how much Maxwell will play in favor of Lough, but it's probably not enough for him to gain relevance in deep mixed leagues, just yet.

The Kansas City Royals have acquired OF Justin Maxwell from the Kansas City Royals, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell joins a crowded outfield. David Lough and Lorenzo Cain (groin) have been receiving most of the playing time recently, and that seems unlikely to change because of this deal, unless Cain's injury turns out to be serious. Jarrod Dyson is also a factor, though. It's unclear yet what KC gave up. The odds increase that prospect George Springer will debut for Houston in 2013.
