Royals | Raul Adalberto Mondesi recalled

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:19:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi was recalled from Class AAA Omaha Tuesday, July 26. In a corresponding move, OF/2B Whit Merrifield was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Mondesi had played just 14 games with Omaha, but he posted a .304/.328/.536 slash line with seven of his 17 hits going for extra bases. He's unlikely to have a significant role, but there's plenty of upside in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, especially in the speed department. Merrifield was mired in an active 5-for-45 slump, so he's best replaced in most settings.

Royals | Whit Merrifield, Jarrod Dyson out Monday

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:10:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Whit Merrifield and OF Jarrod Dyson are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. 2B Christian Colon is starting at second base and is hitting ninth, while OF Brett Eibner draws into right field and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Colon should be a fantasy afterthought with his .250 average, no homer runs and nine RBI in 100 at-bats. Eibner has slightly more appeal as a deep sleeper in DFS and is hitting .254 with three bombs and 10 RBI. Neither project to stuff the stat sheet hitting low in the order, though.
