Kansas City Royals news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:41:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Volquez ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) went 2-2 with a 3.43 ERA in six starts during the month of August. His next outing will come against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Sept. 3.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:49:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This isn't shocking news, as it appeared likely, but it is still nice to hear confirmation from the skipper. Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a force since joining the Royals with a .337/.426/.531 slash line over 26 games. Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), meanwhile, is currently rehabbing his groin injury in the minors and could join the Royals sooner than later, but it will likely correlate with rosters expanding in September. Gordon should be owned in all seasonal leagues.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Ventura ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) improved to 5-0 in his last seven starts and has allowed just three runs over his last 25 innings. He will make his next start against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 09:44:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a .304-2-15 line and is a good start against Chris Tillman on FantasyScore.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:17:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) doesn't really do anything that stands out for fantasy owners, and his low lineup positioning doesn't make him attractive at all on FantasyScore tonight.
Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:08:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holland hasn't been at his best this year, but he's in no danger of losing the closing role unless he has to go on the DL. Keep tabs on his status for the rest of the week. If he's unavailable tonight or in subsequent games this week, the best bet to see save chances would be Wade Davis. Davis is already valuable in the majority of fantasy leagues because of his excellent numbers in a setup role.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 17:17:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) finished with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored in three games against the Red Sox, and he may finally be breaking out of his two-month slump. If he draws a friendly matchup, he could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:25:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is receiving a day off after starting several games in a row. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided by owners.
Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:00:00 -0700
Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist, who is eligible to become a free agent after the season, said he would like to return to the club. "Certainly, this had been one of the teams I liked the look of," he said. "And now, since I've been here, it's a place I want to stay longer. Being here has certainly done nothing but make this (team) go up on my list."
Fantasy Tip: In 20 games since being acquired from the A's, Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is batting .351 with four home runs and 13 RBIs in 74 at-bats, including a .389 mark during the month of August. FantasyScore owners should continue using him while he's swinging a hot bat.
Fri, 21 Aug 2015 18:13:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) had allowed six runs combined in his previous four starts for the Royals and experienced his worst outing since being traded to the American League Friday. He will look to bounce back in his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:13:31 -0700
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.
Thu, 20 Aug 2015 19:23:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) has now allowed five runs in two of his last five outings. On the other hand, he has allowed a combined five runs in the other three starts, spanning 16 1/3 innings. He will make his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Thu, 20 Aug 2015 17:48:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Although there is no established timetable for his return, it wouldn't be a surprise if Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) was activated from the disabled list when rosters are expanded in September. Ben Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), who has seen occasional playing time in left field in his absence, should see most of his action at second base down the stretch.
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.
Wed, 19 Aug 2015 22:56:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .342 (13-for-38) during his impressive hitting streak. He is a must-have in FantasyScore at a mid-level price while he is rolling along.
