Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in right field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Wednesday, April 15.
Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should see the majority of playing time in right field while Alex Rios is on the disabled list. Dyson should now be owned in the majority of fantasy baseball leagues for his steals potential. He is a decent buy-low option at FantasyScore tonight against Gibson. Dyson hit .274 with his only home run against right-handed pitching in 2014.

Kansas City Royals OFs Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando will split time in right field with OF Alex Rios (finger) on the disabled list, according to general manager Dayton Moore.
Fantasy Tip: Dyson stole 36 bases in 260 at-bats last year and should see the most time of the split. He'll only cost $2,400 (4.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore, and he'll be an attractive flyer when he's in there. Orlando ($1,600, 3.2%) has three hits in eight at-bats this year, and all of them were triples. He's one to watch over the next few days.

Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (finger) has a non-displaced fracture in his left pinkie. General manager Dayton Moore said Rios' timetable isn't clear, but he should be out between three and six weeks. OFs Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando will split time in Rios' absence.
Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of your cap) stole 36 bags in a half-season worth of at-bats last year. The 29-year-old Orlando ($1,600, 3.2%) hit .301 with six homers, 63 RBI and 34 steals in a full season at Triple-A last year. The left-handed hitting Dyson will likely play most of the time with Orlando likely to face lefties. Both are speculative flyers on FantasyScore for their wheels. Prospect OF Brett Eibner is unlikely to be called up.

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain will play right field in Game 3 of the World Series Friday, Oct. 24. Manager Ned Yost wants to boost his team's defense by using Cain in right field and starting OF Jarrod Dyson in center field.

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is in the starting lineup in Game 3 of the World Series in place of OF Norichika Aoki.
Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:15:30 -0700
Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) is batting leadoff and playing right field Friday, July 11, against the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Return Aoki to your lineups in AL-only formats, but he'll face stingy Anibal Sanchez, so it isn't an ideal matchup. He has mixed league potential but hasn't had a great start in Kansas City and will likely split time with Jarrod Dyson, at least initially.

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) isn't expected to rejoin the club on their current road trip, per manager Ned Yost.
Fantasy Tip: The last game of the road trip is Wednesday, July 9, so he may return next week, at earliest. But he's in jeopardy of losing playing time to Jarrod Dyson anyway.
Thu, 26 Jun 2014 10:15:59 -0700
Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said the plan at this point is for OF Norichika Aoki (groin) to return the starting lineup when he comes off the 15-day disabled list, but Yost indicated the plan could change when Aoki is healed. Aoki could be part of a platoon with OF Jarrod Dyson when he returns, because he hits better against left-handed pitchers than he does right-handed pitchers.
