Royals | Mike Moustakas remains out vs. Tigers

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:58:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moustakas ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is currently heating up with a .333/.387/.684 slash line, four home runs and 16 RBI over his past 15 games and is expected to return soon. Cuthbert is nothing more than a dice roll for daily contests Wednesday.

Royals | Mike Moustakas has pulled hammy

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:38:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is dealing with a pulled hamstring, but manager Ned Yost is hoping Moustakas can return to the lineup in a day or so. Moustakas wanted to play Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Plan to make sure that Moose ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is back in the lineup in the next few days before throwing him into your FantasyScore lineup. Moustakas had a great month of August and could keep that rolling into the final month of the season. He's a solid play in daily formats once he's back in there.

Royals | Mike Moustakas out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:14:36 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Detroit Tigers. 2B Ben Zobrist is playing third and batting second against Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting just .189 against Verlander, and the left vs. right matchup provides the Royals the excuse to give "Moose" a night off. Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .346 average in the past week and hits .257 against Verlander, so he is a decent FantasyScore option.

Royals | Mike Moustakas caps big series

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 17:17:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI and a run scored in an 8-6 win over the Boston Red Sox Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) finished with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored in three games against the Red Sox, and he may finally be breaking out of his two-month slump. If he draws a friendly matchup, he could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sitting vs. Red Sox

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:18:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. OF Paulo Orlando draws into the lineup and is batting eighth, and 2B Ben Zobrist is filling in at third base and batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the struggling Moustakas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He owns a .196/.298/.375 slash line since the All-Star break and seasonal owners should be considering replacements. Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a hitting machine since joining Kansas City and worth a look almost nightly at FantasyScore. He has a .357/.446/.600 slash line over 19 games with the Royals. Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is nothing more than a flier in daily contests, and you should be able to find better value in his price range at FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas drives in a trio

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 22:43:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBIs Tuesday, Aug. 11, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: It was a much-needed big game for Moose ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), as he entered with just one RBI over his past 16 games. Wait for this type of run production to become more frequent before investing in him again in FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sitting vs. White Sox

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:30:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ben Zobrist ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is starting at third base and batting second against Jose Quintana. Zobrist stands as a risky FantasyScore option at his cap hit Sunday. Moustakas ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been struggling (active 8-for-58 run) and owns a .651 OPS against southpaws this season, so it isn't surprising to see him out of the lineup.

Royals | Ben Zobrist takes a breather

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 14:11:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B/OF Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 8, with 3B Mike Moustakas moving up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Moose ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is 3-for-8 with two homers lifetime against Jeff Samardzija and is a decent play at third on FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas in starting lineup

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:51:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is starting at third base and hitting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Tuesday, Aug. 4, after sitting out each of the team's last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) hit .188 (16-for-85) with three home runs and eight RBI in July but was benched for two games over the weekend. Hitting lower in the order isn't good for his daily value, either. Verlander has been solid in his last two outings, but he's still allowing 1.6 homers per nine innings. Moose makes for an under-the-radar play if you're looking to zig when others zag tonight.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sits again

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:19:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Mike Moustakas isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert will start at third base and hit eighth in the order, while 2B Ben Zobrist will start in left field and hit second against RHP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday against Mark Buehrle. Cuthbert shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.
