Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain has decided to drop the appeal of his two-game suspension and will begin serving the suspension Sunday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Paulo Orlando ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could receive a few starts while Cain serves the suspension. Orlando has had a decent start to the season with a .250 batting average, five triples and four RBI. He could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain was ejected Thursday, April 24, after a bench-clearing brawl with the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what his role in the fray was, but Paulo Orlando ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) would benefit if Cain misses time. He's hitting .237 with one steal this year, so he doesn't have much FantasyScore appeal.

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against the Minnesota Twins Monday, April 20. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting ninth Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Currently, there is no indication Cain's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) absence is injury related, but he was hit by a pitch Sunday, April 19. It is worth checking back for updates, although it might just be an opportunity to allow Cain to take a breather, too. Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a cheap flier for FantasyScore players Monday.
