Braves | Omar Infante signs with Braves

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 11:49:49 -0700

Free-agent 2B Omar Infante (Royals) signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Infante has really struggled the last year-and-a-half, but he should see playing time against left-handers in a platoon with Jace Peterson at some point. Infante is an NL-only depth option, but your expectations shouldn't be very high.

Royals | Omar Infante released

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 11:50:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante was released Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Infante would have to land in a really good lineup and hitter's park to have mixed league luster. He'll be a depth piece in single-universe leagues if/when he latches on elsewhere.

Royals | Omar Infante designated for assignment

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 14:43:19 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante was designated for assignment Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Infante had been relegated to a bench role with the emergence of Whit Merrifield within the last month. The veteran second baseman was hitting .239 with no home runs and 11 RBI in 134 at-bats and had lost any minimal fantasy value he had in AL-only leagues. Infante could latch on with another team but is unlikely to have any value from here on out.

Royals | Whit Merrifield at second base

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:37:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Whit Merrifield is starting at second base and is hitting second against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Friday, June 3. 2B Omar Infante will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Infante will likely start on the bench more often than not now with Merrifield around. The young outfielder is off to a fine start with 18 hits in his first 50 major league at-bats and has become an option for depth in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues despite his lack of speed and power.

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.
