Kansas City Royals 2B Chris Getz is hitting only .216 and is 4-for-37 since hitting a home run April 16. 2B Elliot Johnson started over Getz Tuesday, May 7. "I'm going to start playing Elliot to keep him in the mix," manager Ned Yost said. "Mainly at second. We'll see how it goes. I'll go day to day with it. I want to get Getzie going a little more. He's not swinging the bat like I know he can." 3B Miguel Tejada also started over 3B Mike Moustakas, who is hitting .198 overall and .160 against lefties, Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson is only worth considering for a roster spot in deep AL-only universes since Getz still seems to be Yost's primary second baseman in the long run.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost chose to sit 1B Billy Butler in favor of 1B Eric Hosmer Friday, April 5, mostly because the team will face left-handed pitchers for the rest of the weekend. "If I sit Hos today," Yost said, "he doesn't (start) for three days. If a pitcher has never faced a hitter, the advantage kind of goes to the pitcher. Kendrick has never faced Billy or Hos." OF Jeff Francoeur is also 9-for-22 in his career against Philadelphia Phillies SP Kyle Kendrick. Yost is reluctant to put Hosmer in the outfield, so Francoeur will likely start all three games against the Phils. INFs Miguel Tejada and Elliot Johnson might also see playing time this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: You'll want to get Butler back in your lineups this weekend in daily leagues. The opposite goes for Hosmer if you can swap guys in and out on a daily basis.

Kansas City Royals C George Kottaras has won the backup catching job over C Brett Hayes. Kottaras had the advantage because he gives the team another left-handed bat off the bench. Hayes accepted an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. INFs Miguel Tejada and Elliot Johnson have also made the team, and KC still needs to place SP Danny Duffy (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list.

Kansas City Royals SS Miguel Tejada is likely to make the final roster as the team's second utility infielder after INF Irving Falu was optioned to Omaha Wednesday, March 27.
Fantasy Tip: Tejada is a shell of his former self, and only warrants fantasy consideration in the very deepest of AL-only formats at this point of his career.
