Royals | Omar Infante sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:43:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Whit Merrifield is starting at the keystone and is batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: The right-handed Merrifield hit .278 with five home runs and 17 RBI at Class AAA Omaha earlier this year. He's never had double-digit home runs in the minors but does possess speed (32 thefts in 2015). Merrifield could create havoc on the basepaths at the top of the order tonight but doesn't project to fill up the stat sheet otherwise. He's a deep sleeper in daily games.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield went 1-for-3 in his only other start of the season, so owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Royals | Three Royals out for Game 1

Wed, 18 May 2016 08:29:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez, 2B Omar Infante and OF Paulo Orlando are out for the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 18. 2B Christian Colon, C Drew Butera and OF Jarrod Dyson are hitting in the final three spots in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Butera is 4-for-10 (.400) with three doubles on the season. He's a shot in the dark against knuckle-baller Steven Wright. Dyson has wheels, but he's hitting just .217. He and Colon aren't ripe DFS flyers today.

Royals | Christian Colon playing Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:15:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Christian Colon is back in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Saturday, May 14, batting eighth. 2B Omar Infante is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is batting .333 with three RBI in 30 at-bats versus right-handers this season and is 4-for-11 at the dish over the past week. He's worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy formats.

Royals | Omar Infante not in lineup again

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:47:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (rest) is not in the lineup for the second straight day Thursday, May 12. 2B Christian Colon is starting at second base and batting eighth opposite New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Well, manager Ned Yost did say recently that he would feature Infante in the batting order less, specifically three to five days a week, which means more playing time for the soon-to-be 27-year-old Colon. However, he doesn't really merit being acquired, as his upside is extremely limited. In fact, he's still searching for his first career long ball after 187 at-bats.

Royals | Omar Infante out of the lineup

Wed, 11 May 2016 13:46:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Wednesday, May 11. SS Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has gone 4-for-13 with one RBI over the last seven days. Owners likely will be able to find better players to use in their lineups and could be avoided in most leagues.

Royals | Omar Infante may see more time off

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:21:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is expected to receive more days moving forward because it should keep him fresh during the season, according to manager Ned Yost. Infante has struggled with his defense, but Yost believes more days off will help his arm and defensive range.

Fantasy Tip: Infante has been in the starting lineup for most of the games this season, but it appears he will receive an extra day or two off during the week. He is hitting .247 with four RBI this season and is not a great option for most owners.

Royals | Mike Moustakas scratched

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:43:19 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) was scratched from the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 2B Christian Colon is starting at third base and is hitting eighth. 2B Omar Infante, who was originally out of the lineup, is playing second base and hitting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Moose has missed a few games now with his nagging thumb ailment, so stay tuned for more updates on him. Hopefully for his owners it won't linger or affect his performance. Colon has a weak .200/.273/.250 slash line with four hits in 20 at-bats and is one to avoid in daily leagues tonight.

Royals | Omar Infante takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:50:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is hitting only .200, and he has no home runs in his career. Avoid him everywhere, especially against one of the better pitchers in the AL in Salazar.

Royals | Salvador Perez, Omar Infante to sit

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 11:02:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright Sunday, April 24. 2B Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting seventh, while C Drew Butera will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has collected only two hits in 10 at-bats this season and probably can be avoided in all leagues. Butera has received only three at-bats and is not a strong fantasy option.
