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.

Royals | No Mike Moustakas vs. Toronto

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 07:04:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moustakas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Saturday. He is likely just receiving a day off against the crafty southpaw. Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has gone 6-for-19 through six games to start his big league career, but he remains nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Saturday.

Royals | Mike Moustakas on the bench

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:35:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, July 26. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cuthbert has gone 5-for-15 since joining the team but may not be a great fantasy option at this point.

Royals | Mike Moustakas out in nightcap

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:51:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Friday, July 17. SS Dusty Coleman is starting at third base and hitting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is an afterthought on FantasyScore and shouldn't even be considered for a sleeper role against the inconsistent Danks.

Royals | Mike Moustakas back with team

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 11:54:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas was activated from the bereavement list Friday, July 10, and the Royals optioned 3B Cheslor Cuthbert to Class AAA Omaha in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is back in the lineup and is hitting second against Toronto Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada tonight. Moustakas has only two hits in 17 at-bats (.118) this month, though, and you may want to avoid him until he gets back in the hit column.

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:48:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas was placed on the bereavement list Monday, July 6, and 3B Cheslor Cuthbert was called up from the minors in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be out several days at the most this week. Make sure to stay away from him for at least a few days on FantasyScore. In weekly leagues, sitting him out this week is the smart way to go.
