Royals | Alex Rios nearing rehab assignment

Tue, 19 May 2015 17:15:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (hand) could begin a rehab assignment in seven-to-10 days, according to manager Ned Yost Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rios ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has the potential to represent a rare power bat in the Royals lineup. For the first time since his rookie season in 2004, Rios failed to hit double-digit home runs in 2014, finishing the season with just four homers for the Texas Rangers. Rios has stolen at least 11 bases in all 11 of his major league seasons. Rios could quickly become the most appealing FantasyScore option in the Royals lineup.

Royals | Alex Rios hitting off tee

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:49:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios (hand) is starting to hit balls off a tee and did some long toss Thursday, May 14, as he works his way back from a broken bone in his left hand. Manager Ned Yost said Rios is "definitely making progress" and is on schedule.

Fantasy Tip: With Rios out, Jarrod Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Paulo Orlando ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) have performed a platoon in right field. Neither is playing particularly well, though, and both are nothing more than low-end desperation outfield plays at FantasyScore for their speed.
