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.

Royals | Salvador Perez receiving day off

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:33:14 -0700

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.

Royals | Salvador Perez sitting vs. Cards

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:32:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Perez remains one of the best fantasy backstops in the game. Sub him out where you can in seasonal leagues. Butera has been excellent this season with a .306/.358/.571 slash line over 54 plate appearances, but he is still nothing more than a flier in daily contests and a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues because of his limited playing time.

Royals | Three KC regulars taking a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:02:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando and 1B Kendrys Morales are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. OF Whit Merrifield is in left field and hitting leadoff, OF Reymond Fuentes is starting in right field and batting seventh and C Drew Butera is doing the catching and hitting ninth with C Salvador Perez serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield has become a start in KC in short order with a .326 average (31-for-95), and he's homered in back-to-back games for his first two big league long balls. While he's hot, continue using him as a value pick in DFS. He's also worth adding for depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with everyday playing time. Fuentes, Butera and Colon all profile as low-end dart throws as deep sleepers in DFS.
