Fri, 11 Jul 2014 13:01:43 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 11, against the Detroit Tigers.

Royals | Norichika Aoki officially activated

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:41:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) has officially been activated from the disabled list Friday, July 11. In a corresponding move, 2B Christian Colon was optioned to Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is in the lineup tonight, but he might be involved in a platoon in right field after the All-Star break when Alex Gordon (wrist) returns, since Lorenzo Cain and Jarrod Dyson have been playing so well. A platoon situation for Aoki should limit his ownership to AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Royals | Norichika Aoki returns

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:15:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) is batting leadoff and playing right field Friday, July 11, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Return Aoki to your lineups in AL-only formats, but he'll face stingy Anibal Sanchez, so it isn't an ideal matchup. He has mixed league potential but hasn't had a great start in Kansas City and will likely split time with Jarrod Dyson, at least initially.

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:48:53 -0700

The Kansas City Royals signed SP Joe Saunders to a minor league deal Tuesday, July 8, and sent him to Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe he'll re-emerge as an AL-only candidate if a rotation spot opens up, but there's no reason to rush into stashing him.

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 08:29:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler, who was stuck in a 3-for-23 slump, was dropped to seventh in the batting order Monday, July 7.
