Royals | Alex Gordon returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:43:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon will bat seventh and start in left field against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 10. C Salvador Perez will bat second and serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera starts behind the plate and bats ninth. DH/OF Kendrys Morales will bat third and play first base, with 1B Eric Hosmer receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is just 4-for-28 at the plate this month and is batting .201 through 194 at-bats entering play Sunday, so he should be avoided in all formats. Butera is batting .286 with two home runs and eight RBI through 56 at-bats this season and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is receiving the day off against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, July 3. C Drew Butera will bat eighth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Butera, a career .192 hitter, is doing surprisingly well at the plate this season. He is 16-for-53 (.302) with seven doubles, two home runs and eight RBI and is worth considering as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games.
