Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (knee) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert is hitting .255 with three RBI on the season. He's not a potent flyer against Tyler Duffey.

Royals | Mike Moustakas remains sidelined

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:39:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (knee) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, May 24. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and is hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Moose is dealing with a bruised knee from the collision with Alex Gordon Sunday, but he's listed as day-to-day and could return as soon as tomorrow. Return him to starting lineups everywhere once he's back. Cuthbert has limited upside with a line-drive stroke and mediocre power. That makes him not all that attractive in daily formats while near the bottom of the order.

Royals | Mike Moustakas activated

Sat, 21 May 2016 07:16:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 21. The team also optioned 3B Cheslor Cuthbert to Class AAA Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas should regain the starting third baseman job and will be in the lineup most days. Owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to see him play in a game before using him, but he should be a starting candidate in most leagues.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert goes deep

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:44:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored Tuesday, May 10, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert continues to make the most of his chance to start in place of the injured Mike Moustakas, and his batting average is up to .313. He is a solid add in AL-only fantasy leagues and a nice low-cost option at the hot corner for those in DFS play.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert starts again

Mon, 09 May 2016 23:45:15 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts Monday, May 9, against the New York Yankees. He was making his third straight start at third base with 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert is worth a look in AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS formats as a low-end salary saver since he is starting fairly regular.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert to play frequently

Sat, 07 May 2016 14:01:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert will "the majority of the time" with 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) on the disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. "Cuthbert is a pretty solid third baseman, so we feel comfortable with him out there," Yost said.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert hit only .217 (10-for-46) with a homer and eight RBI in 19 games for the Royals last year, and he doesn't move the needle at all in fantasy leagues aside from the deeper AL-only formats as a direct replacement for Moose owners.

Royals | Cheslor Cuthbert playing third base

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:37:20 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is batting seventh and playing the hot corner against Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert was recalled after 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a fractured left thumb. He hit .217 with a home run and eight RBI in 46 at-bats last season and should only be considered as an option for AL-only fantasy leagues. At this point, it is uncertain if Cuthbert will receive the bulk of the action at third base while Moustakas is sidelined or if he will split time with INF Christian Colon.

Royals | Mike Moustakas out with fractured thumb

Sat, 07 May 2016 08:26:41 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 7, because of a fractured left thumb. The team also recalled 3B Cheslor Cuthbert from Class AAA Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas will be out several weeks because of the fracture and likely will need to go on a rehab assignment before he returns, so owners should monitor the situation. Christian Colon is probably the leading candidate to receive most of the starts at third base while Moustakas is sidelined. He is hitting .250 with one RBI so far this season and is an AL-only option at this point, but owners in deeper mixed leagues can keep an eye on his production if they need help at the position. It is not known how Cuthbert will be used for the time being. He is hitting .333 with seven home runs and 28 RBI with Omaha this season. Cuthbert should be added in all AL-only leagues at this point and could be an option in deeper mixed leagues if he receives significant playing time.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sidelined for fifth day

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 15:15:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is sidelined for the fifth day in a row Saturday, Sept. 5, due to hamstring issues. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is again in the lineup, and he is hitting sixth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has felt better, but the lefty vs. lefty matchup allows the Royals another chance to sit Moustakas. Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) can be used as low-cost help in your lineup.

Royals | Mike Moustakas still sidelined

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 13:33:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday, Sept. 4. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base again and is hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hit his first career home run the other night, but nothing really about his profile should excite daily players, especially while hitting low in the lineup. He's mainly useful for salary cap relief if you're desperate.
