Royals | Omar Infante returns to the lineup

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:13:31 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Omar Infante (back) is batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) last played Sunday, Aug. 16, and currently sports a disappointing 3-for-45 run dating back to Friday, July 31. He is a low-end fantasy option in all formats, and FantasyScore players should aim higher or hunt for better value in his price range.

Royals | Omar Infante remains sidelined

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:15:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (back) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. 2B Ben Zobrist is starting at second again and OF Paulo Orlando is starting in left field and hitting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) doesn't have much offensive upside and is in an unfavorable lineup spot tonight against the southpaw Miley. Orlando hasn't really had much success against lefties in limited duty, either.

Royals | Omar Infante available to play

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 22:55:32 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (back) was available to play Wednesday, Aug. 19, against the Cincinnati Reds after being scratched Tuesday, Aug. 18, due to back spasms. However, manager Ned Yost said he would give Infante one more day off before using him in Boston over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a decent low-end FantasyScore when he is in the starting lineup, but give him a game or two to prove his health without any lingering effects of his injury.

Royals | Omar Infante out again

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:18:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Ben Zobrist moves to second base and OF Jarrod Dyson will start in left field and hit ninth against Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: With the Royals moving back to American League play tomorrow, expect Infante to return Thursday. Dyson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has fantasy appeal because of his wheels, but he struggles to reach base often and his outlook dims hitting at the bottom of the order.

Royals | Orlando Calixte playing in left field

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 12:16:55 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Orlando Calixte will bat ninth and play left field against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Saturday, Aug. 15. INF/OF Ben Zobrist, who played left field Friday, Aug. 14, will play second base Saturday, with 2B Omar Infante getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Calixte is 0-for-3 with a run scored in two career major league games and is not yet available in FantasyScore. Give him several games to show what he's capable of before considering him for any fantasy format.

Royals | Omar Infante resting

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:53:32 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11. 2B Ben Zobrist is starting at the keystone and hitting second against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 3-for-22 with three singles in his career against Sanchez. Although Zobrist does have eight of his nine homers this year against righties, he's only hitting .240 against them in 2015. Sanchez has been all over the map this year, though, and is allowing 1.5 home runs per nine innings. Zobrist is a midrange second base option tonight. You could do worse.

Royals | Omar Infante producing at plate

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:12:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante has recorded at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games and has two RBI during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled at times this season but is having better luck at the plate. Owners could consider Infante as a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Omar Infante sitting out

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 08:17:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. 2B Christian Colon will take his place in the lineup and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time over the past few weeks, and owners on FantasyScore may want to consider spending a little extra money for a better option.

Royals | Still no Omar Infante

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:06:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 23. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Chicago SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Infante in all fantasy formats Thursday, and don't expect much from Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), either. Sale is a high-end pitcher who looks in midseason form through his first two starts of the season. Aim higher than Colon.

Royals | Omar Infante remains out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:43:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has very little fantasy upside at the plate, especially at the bottom of KC's lineup. Milone is off to a strong start to the season, as well. It'd be wise to look elsewhere at second base at FantasyScore this evening.
