Royals | KC may use platoon in right field

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 07:31:34 -0800

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost hinted that OFs Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando could platoon in right field during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson hit .250 with two home runs and 25 RBIs in 200 at-bats last season and was successful on 26 of 29 stolen-base attempts. As a left-handed hitter, he would be likely to receive most of the playing time in this projected timeshare. Orlando hit .249 with seven home runs and 27 RBIs in 241 at-bats in 2015, including a .265 mark versus left-handed pitching. Both players should be viewed as reserve outfield options for AL-only and cavernous mixed formats.

Royals | KC showing interest in Yoenis Cespedes

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 14:55:50 -0800

The Kansas City Royals are showing interest in free-agent OF Yoenis Cespedes (Mets). However, the Royals know that Cespedes' price tag will most likely be beyond their comfort range. The Royals are interested in re-signing Alex Gordon and will also try to save money by giving OF Jarrod Dyson a chance to be a regular corner outfielder.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that Cespedes will return to the Mets because of his high asking price. His production in the second half for New York and in the postseason will also inflate his fantasy price in next year's drafts, making him an expensive but worthy top-tier outfielder.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain sitting out

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 | No Lorenzo Cain against Tribe

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 11:50:18 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is one of the quicker players in the game today, but he often struggles to get on base and has basically zero power. He's a weak outfield pick on FantasyScore against the Klubot.

Royals | Omar Infante out again

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:18:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Ben Zobrist moves to second base and OF Jarrod Dyson will start in left field and hit ninth against Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: With the Royals moving back to American League play tomorrow, expect Infante to return Thursday. Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has fantasy appeal because of his wheels, but he struggles to reach base often and his outlook dims hitting at the bottom of the order.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain not in lineup

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 12:21:01 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Saturday, Aug. 15. OF Jarrod Dyson will bat eighth and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Cain ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 3-for-10 during the month of August and is 9-for-10 in stolen base attempts since the All-Star break.

Royals | No Alex Rios Tuesday

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:57:42 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11. OF Paulo Orlando is starting in right field and hitting eighth, while OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in left field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is the FantasyScore player to own tonight, but his daily value has a ceiling because of his low placement in the lineup. Dyson has incredible speed but struggles to get on base with a .325 on-base percentage.

Royals | No Alex Rios Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:34:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in right field and is hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: The acquisition of Ben Zobrist could wind up hurting Rios the most. Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who has been very valuable for his speed for KC, could wind up in a platoon situation with either Zobrist or Rios. Dyson is a value pick on FantasyScore for his stolen base threat, but hitting at the bottom of the order limits his upside.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson not in the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:02:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, July 26. OF Paulo Orlando will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is sitting because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Orlando ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .273 with three home runs and 10 RBI this month and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain has the day off

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:16:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with OF Jarrod Dyson hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting just .229 this month. While he has eight hits in July, he also has seven steals. It's hard to play someone on FantasyScore for steals only, so avoid him for now.
