Royals | Eric Hosmer out 3-6 weeks

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 09:01:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (finger) will miss three to six weeks with a stress fracture of the third finger of his right hand. He aggravated a previous injury on a check swing Thursday, July 31. Hosmer will be placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The likely replacement for Hosmer at first base will be Billy Butler, who has turned it on of late with the stick. Butler has been the team's permanent designated hitter for a while, though, so he'll probably need to be spelled often.

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:46:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett is the subject of discussions with the Kansas City Royals, but there's no indication that a deal is close.

Royals | Pursuing SPs

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:40:46 -0700

The Kansas City Royals are pursuing New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon, Boston Red Sox SP John Lackey and San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: They're also investigating A.J. Burnett. A move to Kansas City's park would be positive for any of these three, but the offense won't boost their chances for run support and wins that much.

Royals | Joe Saunders released

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:34:23 -0700

The Kansas City Royals released SP Joe Saunders from Triple-A Omaha Tuesday, July 29.
