Royals | Omar Infante might not play every day

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 10:16:06 -0800

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not guaranteed to be the team's everyday second baseman, according to general manager Dayton Moore. "I just know we're going to put the best team out there each and every night, and I know Omar is capable of being that guy," Moore said. "But we like Christian Colon, too. But you need them all to win, as you know. It's a team, and you count on everyone to perform. I don't know if Omar, at this point, is going to play 162 games."

Fantasy Tip: Neither Infante nor Colon will match the offensive production that Ben Zobrist provided for Kansas City down the stretch last year. Infante is still considered to have the edge in the competition, even though he is recovering from minor surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow. They should be targeted exclusively in AL-only fantasy leagues during the later rounds.

Royals | Ben Zobrist sitting vs. Cleveland

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 08:23:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 27. 2B Christian Colon draws into the lineup and is batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) owns a solid .299/.383/.488 slash line over 52 games since joining the Royals, and he remains a low-end starting option at either middle infield position in all fantasy formats. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns a .352 on-base percentage this season and boasts a respectable floor at a discount for FantasyScore contests Sunday.

Royals | Alcides Escobar sitting vs. Detroit

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:50:03 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. 2B Christian Colon is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has hit a wall in the second half with a .203/.241/.236 slash line, and he isn't leading off anymore, either. He shouldn't be owned outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) checks out as an upside source of cap relief Sunday, albeit one with plenty of risk.

Royals | No Alcides Escobar against Detroit

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:33:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. 2B Christian Colon is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns a .241/.302/.291 slash line over 87 plate appearances this season, and he should be viewed as low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday. Just know his upside is extremely limited. Make sure to avoid Escobar ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. Expect him back atop the Royals lineup Friday, Sept. 4.

Royals | Alcides Escobar scratched Monday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:07:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (finger) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, June 29. SS Christian Colon will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been dealing with the injury for a few days, so owners should look for an update after the game. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 1-for-12 in limited playing time this month and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sitting out

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:18:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday, June 21. 2B Christian Colon will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could be sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has received only seven at-bats this month and has one hit. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options to use for their lineups.

Royals | Omar Infante sitting out

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 08:17:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. 2B Christian Colon will take his place in the lineup and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time over the past few weeks, and owners on FantasyScore may want to consider spending a little extra money for a better option.
