Royals | Salvador Perez smashes homer

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 20:39:02 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez cracked a two-run home run in the All-Star Game Tuesday, July 12, but he narrowly missed out on MVP honors to teammate 1B Eric Hosmer.

Fantasy Tip: Perez pulled into the break with a .283 average, 14 homers, 41 RBIs and an .818 OPS in the first half. He is on pace to eclipse his career high of 21 homers set last season, and he needs 39 RBIs for a new career best. He remains a top-notch fantasy receiver in most formats and DFS play heading into the second half.

Royals | Alex Gordon returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:43:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon will bat seventh and start in left field against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 10. C Salvador Perez will bat second and serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera starts behind the plate and bats ninth. DH/OF Kendrys Morales will bat third and play first base, with 1B Eric Hosmer receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is just 4-for-28 at the plate this month and is batting .201 through 194 at-bats entering play Sunday, so he should be avoided in all formats. Butera is batting .286 with two home runs and eight RBI through 56 at-bats this season and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Royals | Salvador Perez receiving day off

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:33:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is receiving the day off against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, July 3. C Drew Butera will bat eighth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Butera, a career .192 hitter, is doing surprisingly well at the plate this season. He is 16-for-53 (.302) with seven doubles, two home runs and eight RBI and is worth considering as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games.
