Royals | Jarrod Dyson, Omar Infante sitting

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:57:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. OF Brett Eibner is starting in left field and is hitting seventh, while OF White Merrifield is at the keystone and is batting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield, who has 14 hits in 40 at-bats so far, has been seeing more playing time over Infante. Take note in your league if you're looking for depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Eibner is also off to a nice start in his first taste of the majors with five hits (two doubles) in 11 at-bats and deserves some consideration for outfield depth in AL-only universes. Neither is a very strong daily pick today against Smyly, but Merrifield has more upside in the two-hole.

Royals | Omar Infante in, Jarrod Dyson out

Sat, 28 May 2016 08:47:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Saturday, May 28. OF Whit Merrifield will start in left field and is batting second, while 2B Omar Infante will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield has gone 9-for-24 with two RBI over the last seven days and should be a decent fantasy option in daily fantasy leagues. Infante has a hit in each of his last four games and has five RBI during that span. He should be a decent starting candidate in most fantasy leagues.

Royals | Kendrys Morales, Omar Infante sitting

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:28:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales (finger) and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Brett Eibner is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth, while OF Whit Merrifield is starting at the keystone and hitting second against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Not much is going right for Morales this year. He's sporting an ugly .187/.247/.313 slash line with five home runs and 18 RBI and is expected to miss a few more days with his injury. Keep him benched where you own him until he shows signs of life and returns from injury. Both Merrifield and Eibner are worth looks in AL-only leagues for depth. They should both see decent playing time with Alex Gordon and Kendrys Morales hurt right now.

Royals | Kendrys Morales, Omar Infante sitting

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:47:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Whit Merrifield is starting at second base and hitting second, while OF Brett Eibner is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: That's now two straight games Morales has sat out while posting an ugly slash line of .187/.247/.313 with five home runs and 18 RBI. If you own him in deep mixed and AL-only leagues bench him until he shows signs of life. You can consider cutting him in shallow leagues. Merrifield and Eibner could both see decent playing time with the injuries to Mike Moustakas (knee) and Alex Gordon (wrist), so consider adding them for depth in AL leagues for now.

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.

Royals | Omar Infante sitting out

Sat, 21 May 2016 09:20:15 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Saturday, May 21. OF Whit Merrifield will start at second base and is batting eighth.

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.
