Royals | Complete game loss for Yordano Ventura

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 21:26:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura threw his first complete game, allowing three runs on four hits, including three solo home runs, while walking one and striking out six in a loss to the Texas Rangers Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Yordano is enjoying one of his better stretches, allowing three runs or less in four straight starts. He is still a risky option in mixed formats, but he could be worth a look in AL-only leagues.

Royals | Luke Hochevar placed on DL

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:31:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Luke Hochevar (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 28. The move was retroactive to Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: With Hochevar sidelined, Kelvin Herrera and Joakim Soria are the two names to own from Kansas City's bullpen for owners who are seeking holds. One of them also could emerge with the closing duties, too, if Wade Davis is dealt before the trade deadline.

Royals | Salvador Perez out with head cold

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 15:07:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (illness) is out of the lineup because of a head cold Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Perez to return to the lineup Friday, July 29, and he remains a high-end catcher in all fantasy settings. Continue to start him confidently.

Royals | Salvador Perez sitting vs. Texas

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:54:18 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Sub Perez out of your lineups where you can Thursday, and especially in daily contests. He's a high-end backstop in all fantasy settings and sits with 39 runs, 15 home runs, 45 RBI and a .271/.307/.479 slash line for the season.

Royals | Danny Duffy spins another quality start

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:42:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Wednesday, July 27. He struck out five and walked two.

Fantasy Tip: For Duffy, this was his fifth quality start in six outings, though he failed to pick up his seventh win. The southpaw has allowed more than three runs just once in 11 starts and should offer enough to be owned in all formats.

Royals | Raul Adalberto Mondesi gets first hits

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:34:24 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi was 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Wednesday, July 27. They were the first hits of his major-league career.

Fantasy Tip: Fun fact: neither of Mondesi's hits left the infield, but his speed put pressure on the defense and helped the Royals pull away from the Angels. The team has been very high on Mondesi, and he has some upside appeal in AL-only setups.

Royals | Paulo Orlando collects three hits

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:27:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Paulo Orlando went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Orlando is locked in right now, going 12-for-30 (.400) over his last eight games. The problem is he has almost no power and modest speed. His high average provides him some value in AL-only leagues, but that's as far as it goes.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain begins rehab assignment

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:15:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) began his rehab assignment on Wednesday, July 27. He played seven innings for Class AAA Omaha and was 1-for-4 with a strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Cain is officially back on the field and inching closer to returning. Once he's back he can be plugged into your lineups as he's expected to play in an everyday capacity.

Royals | Luke Hochevar could be traded

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:44:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Luke Hochevar is available on the trade market because he will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Hochevar is a low-end own in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he can help in those deep settings by stabilizing your ratios and padding the strikeout column. Over the past two seasons, Hochevar has a 3.78 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and 89 strikeouts through 88 innings pitched.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson on the bench

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:59:24 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs Tuesday, July 26. OF Paulo Orlando will start in center field, while OF Brett Eibner will start in right field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Eibner has gone hitless in each of his last five games and should not be used in any fantasy leagues.

Royals | Raul Adalberto Mondesi starting

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:46:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi will start at second base and is batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Mondesi was successful in the minor leagues this season, but owners in most leagues should see him play in a few games before considering him for their lineup. Owners in AL-only leagues should look to add him to their lineups.

Royals | Raul Adalberto Mondesi recalled

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:19:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Raul Adalberto Mondesi was recalled from Class AAA Omaha Tuesday, July 26. In a corresponding move, OF/2B Whit Merrifield was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Mondesi had played just 14 games with Omaha, but he posted a .304/.328/.536 slash line with seven of his 17 hits going for extra bases. He's unlikely to have a significant role, but there's plenty of upside in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, especially in the speed department. Merrifield was mired in an active 5-for-45 slump, so he's best replaced in most settings.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain to rehab starting Friday

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 00:37:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will begin a rehab stint with Class AAA Omaha on Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: This should put Cain back in the starting lineup in early August, at which point he should go into your lineup. He'll likely play every day upon return.

Royals | Whit Merrifield, Jarrod Dyson out Monday

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:10:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Whit Merrifield and OF Jarrod Dyson are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. 2B Christian Colon is starting at second base and is hitting ninth, while OF Brett Eibner draws into right field and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Colon should be a fantasy afterthought with his .250 average, no homer runs and nine RBI in 100 at-bats. Eibner has slightly more appeal as a deep sleeper in DFS and is hitting .254 with three bombs and 10 RBI. Neither project to stuff the stat sheet hitting low in the order, though.

Royals | Edinson Volquez pitching well

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 16:20:48 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez allowed one run on seven hits while walking three and striking out three over six innings in a no-decision against the Texas Rangers Sunday, July 24, and he has posted a 2.87 ERA during the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Volquez has been pitching well enough to use in AL-only formats, but he isn't a must-own player by any means.
