Royals | Lorenzo Cain not starting Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:30:42 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Sunday, June 28. OF Jarrod Dyson will play center field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .389 in 18 at-bats this month and is 1-for-2 against Chavez in his career. His speed makes him an upside flier for FantasyScore owners looking for productive sources of salary cap relief.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain taking day off

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:51:04 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has minimal intrigue on FantasyScore because of his speed, but the light-hitting outfielder struggles to get on base, and we don't recommend him tonight with a lefty-on-lefty matchup.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain receiving night off

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:23:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting line Monday, June 22. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) speed makes him an upside flier for FantasyScore players, as he can leg out extra-base hits and steal bases. However, against Hernandez, he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief. Make sure to remove Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Monday.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain busy on the bases

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 20:27:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a career-high three steals in a 7-4 win over the Boston Red Sox Saturday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been solid across the board this season, and he has been excellent against lefties. With Wade Miley scheduled to start Sunday, Cain could make a great mid-range play at FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain out Sunday

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:31:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Texans Rangers. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field and hit ninth in the order against RHP Colby Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has six stolen bases on the season, but his opportunities are limited by his .282 OBP. Dyson did go 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base Saturday, making him an option in GPP tournaments for owners needing cap relief.

Royals | Career night for Lorenzo Cain

Fri, 15 May 2015 21:09:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a career-high five RBIs in a 12-1 win over the New York Yankees Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting .326 on the year with 26 runs scored, and while the RBI production was a bit of an anomaly, his steady bat makes him a solid mid-level option at FantasyScore most nights.

Thu, 14 May 2015 07:54:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is out of the lineup Thursday, May 14, with OF Jarrod Dyson in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of your cap) is hitting just .204 this season and isn't more of a traditional league option for his steals than a daily option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain to serve suspension

Sun, 03 May 2015 08:15:14 -0700

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.
