Royals | Eric Hosmer to miss a few games

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:56:04 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to miss all of the games against the Houston Astros this week because of a finger injury.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Hosmer ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will need to be placed on the disabled list, so owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be back in the lineup. Kendrys Morales ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) likely will start at first base and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.
