Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson will start in right field and bat ninth in the order Saturday, May 23, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Paulo Orlando will be a bench option.
Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) can't provide much more than steals to FantasyScore owners. Dyson is a risky play with owners having to count on production from only one category.

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.

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.

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.
