Kansas City Royals OFs Jarrod Dyson and Emilio Bonifacio will platoon in center field with OF Lorenzo Cain (oblique) on the disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost.
Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio could also be mixed in at second base to spell Chris Getz, if needed, so his extra avenues to playing time make him a little more valuable than Dyson in cavernous mixed universes. Both players are speedy and can give you stolen bases down the stretch.

Kansas City Royals OF David Lough (quadriceps) is playing at 80-85 percent health, and he'll take the next two games off. Lough left the game early with right quadriceps tightness Sunday, Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Justin Maxwell, who has been platooning with Lough, will see a short-term boost. However, Jarrod Dyson could also factor in.

The Kansas City Royals have acquired OF Justin Maxwell from the Kansas City Royals, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell joins a crowded outfield. David Lough and Lorenzo Cain (groin) have been receiving most of the playing time recently, and that seems unlikely to change because of this deal, unless Cain's injury turns out to be serious. Jarrod Dyson is also a factor, though. It's unclear yet what KC gave up. The odds increase that prospect George Springer will debut for Houston in 2013.

The Kansas City Royals have activated OF Jarrod Dyson (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, the team optioned 2B Chris Getz to Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson (ankle) was cleared to begin jogging Tuesday, May 28. "I still feel a little pain there," he said, "but it's just a process I've got to go through. I went 90 feet four times. They were just trying to get a gauge if the pain stayed with me after I stopped. It's going away when I stop." There is no timetable for his return.
Fantasy Tip: Dyson will probably need a few rehab outings before returning from the disabled list, so he will likely need at least another week before returning from the DL. Dyson's injury was bad timing, as he was just starting to receive consistent playing time at the expense of Jeff Francoeur. It's unknown if Ned Yost will go back to that arrangement upon Dyson's return. In deep mixed leagues, keep tabs on how that situation plays out before picking him back up.

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson (ankle) said he is making good progress from his high ankle sprain and hopes to start running Tuesday, May 28. He has been able to participate in hitting and throwing drills. Manager Ned Yost said Dyson is expected to be back in two or three weeks.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said OF Jarrod Dyson (ankle) is probably "at least three weeks" away from rejoining the Royals following his high-ankle sprain.
Fantasy Tip: This will allow Jeff Francoeur -- and on some days, David Lough -- to sustain AL-only-centric at-bats.

Kansas City Royals 2B Chris Getz is getting a shot at the leadoff spot since he's started to swing the bat better recently. He's gone 2-for-5 with a walk in his last two starts after previously going 4-for-46. SS Alcides Escobar (three games), OF Jarrod Dyson (three games), OF Lorenzo Cain (three games) and OF David Lough (three games) were all tried in the top spot.
Fantasy Tip: Maybe this keeps Getz going after he picked it up in the last couple of games. If he can peform well in the top spot, it'll help his chances of convincing Ned Yost that he belongs in the lineup on a daily basis, along with the fact that Yost has had trouble finding suitable leadoff hitters. Getz is mainly middle infield insurance in cavernous mixed leagues.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson (ankle) has been diagnosed with a "mild high ankle sprain," and he is likely to miss two to four weeks due to the injury.
