The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent OF Raul Ibanez (Angels) to an undisclosed major league deal Monday, June 30, and also recalled 2B Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha. In corresponding moves, the team designated INF Pedro Ciriaco and OF Justin Maxwell for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Ibanez figures to be a left-handed option for designated hitter duties and off the bench. Colon will be making his major league debut. He doesn't have much power but makes solid contact; he was hitting close to .300 with Omaha before his call-up. Both players should only be considered in AL-only leagues.

The Kansas City Royals have placed OF Norichika Aoki (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a groin injury. The team has also purchased the contract of OF Justin Maxwell from Triple-A Omaha.
Fantasy Tip: With Aoki out, Jarrod Dyson probably will receive most of the time in the outfield until Aoki returns. Dyson could be a decent short-term option for owners in deeper leagues.

The Kansas City Royals placed OF Jarrod Dyson on the bereavement list Friday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: With Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) on the DL, Justin Maxwell will have center field all to himself for at least the next couple of days. Add Maxwell immediately in AL-only leagues for short-term outfield help.

The Kansas City Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain (groin) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 17, and recalled SP Justin Marks from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Jarrod Dyson should benefit the most with Cain heading to the sidelines, but he could enter into a platoon in center field with Justin Maxwell. Add Dyson in deep mixed leagues and AL-onlys if your outfield depth is hurting.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said OF Justin Maxwell is expected to make the team out of camp. Maxwell is hitting .419 (18-for-43) with a home run and six RBIs in spring action in 14 games.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell has an intriguing power and speed mix, but he doesn't make enough contact to really deliver on it. He's probably set for platoon duty against right-handers.

Kansas City Royals OFs Jarrod Dyson and Justin Maxwell are both out of options and at least one of the two is expected to make the team as a reserve outfielder.
