Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (shoulder) said his throws are still lacking the strength he desires. "I'm not 100 percent. But I'm almost there."
Fantasy Tip: Infante is a solid and perhaps even undervalued MI option in mixed leagues because he'll bat second in a KC lineup that's on the rise, so it's encouraging that he's avoided setbacks.

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is likely headed out of the leadoff spot and to the fifth spot following the acquisition of OF Norichika Aoki. "You never know what's going to happen with injuries (or) how people are going to play," Gordon said. "We're going to iron all that out in spring training." Manager Ned Yost has said Gordon will fall into the fifth spot behind 2B Omar Infante, 1B Eric Hosmer and DH Billy Butler.
Fantasy Tip: A move for Gordon to the fifth spot will provide many more RBI opportunities. His runs scored might take a hit, but his power numbers should rise. His fantasy appeal is on the way up batting in the middle of the order.
