Royals | Mike Moustakas leaves early

Sat, 23 May 2015 22:23:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (clavicle) took a hopping ground ball from St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina to the collarbone region. Moustakas stayed in the game two more defensive innings and an at-bat before eventually leaving in the fifth inning. He is considered day-to-day and was replaced by 2B/SS Christian Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Moustakas' status for the Royals' matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 24. He currently costs $5,000 (10.0% of cap) on FantasyScore and is an iffy play due to possible soreness or limited range of motion, given his price point. Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could be low-risk source of cap relief if Moustakas sits out Sunday.

Royals | Still no Omar Infante

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:06:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 23. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Chicago SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Infante in all fantasy formats Thursday, and don't expect much from Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), either. Sale is a high-end pitcher who looks in midseason form through his first two starts of the season. Aim higher than Colon.

Royals | Omar Infante remains out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:43:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has very little fantasy upside at the plate, especially at the bottom of KC's lineup. Milone is off to a strong start to the season, as well. It'd be wise to look elsewhere at second base at FantasyScore this evening.

Royals | Omar Infante out vs. Twins

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:22:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has two hits in 10 at-bats to begin the year, and he's not much of an offensive force for the Royals, especially hitting at the bottom of the order. He's a low-end second base option at FantasyScore with Infante injured.

Royals | Omar Infante injured

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 15:57:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) left the team's game Sunday, April 19, against the Oakland Athletics with what he thought was a hamstring or groin injury. Christian Colon took his place.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be monitored and left off of your lineup until he gets the all-clear to return.

Royals | Christian Colon expected to start

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 05:31:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Christian Colon is expected to start at shortstop Saturday, April 18, because of the injury to SS Alcides Escobar (knee).

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has received only four at-bats this season and has not recorded a hit at this point. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Royals | Omar Infante sitting against Twins

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 09:12:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup against the Minnesota Twins Thursday, April 16. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has yet to have an at-bat in 2015. In just 16 at-bats in 2014 against lefties, Colon had six hits and three RBI (.375). With not many games to choose from today, he's not a bad option if you're looking to spend big elsewhere in your FantasyScore lineup.
