Royals | Lorenzo Cain's hitting streak intact

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 10:02:02 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain extended his playoff hitting streak to a franchise-best 12 straight games in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series Monday, Oct. 19. The all-time playoff record is 17 straight games set by Manny Ramirez, Hank Bauer and Derek Jeter.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to argue going against Cain ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) on FantasyScore while he's in the zone offensively. However, he has only two hits and four strikeouts in nine career at-bats against the Game 4 starter, R.A. Dickey.

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:02:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Sunday, Oct. 4. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) probably will be ready for the playoffs but is out Sunday. Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has only three hits in his last 13 games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Injury updates for Kansas City regulars

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 14:18:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (knee) and C Salvador Perez (thumb) will play against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, Oct. 3, while 1B Kendrys Morales (quadriceps) is expected to play Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) and Perez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) can safely be returned to your seasonal lineups Saturday, but they're likely not high-end FantasyScore options. Morales ($5,300, 10.6% of cap), meanwhile, should be viewed as risky start in all fantasy formats Saturday. Continue to check back for updates.
