Kansas City Royals news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:13:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what his role in the fray was, but Paulo Orlando ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) would benefit if Cain misses time. He's hitting .237 with one steal this year, so he doesn't have much FantasyScore appeal.

Fantasy Tip: It looked like Volquez threw a punch. That would land him a seat for a start or two. Have your bases covered in traditional formats if so.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura had a pretty big role in the altercation, and it's hard to imagine him not getting suspended. With this situation on the heels of his altercation with Brett Lawrie, he could miss multiple games. Chris R. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) could be stretched out from the bullpen in order to cover a start, and he might have some low-end upside on FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Holland's pectoral has a Grade 1 strain, which is the lowest grade, and the organization is optimistic he'll return in approximately two weeks. In Holland's absence, Wade Davis will look after the ninth inning, and Davis should be owned in all formats. Continue to check back for updates on Holland's recovery and return timeline.

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 23. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Chicago SP Chris Sale.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Infante in all fantasy formats Thursday, and don't expect much from Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), either. Sale is a high-end pitcher who looks in midseason form through his first two starts of the season. Aim higher than Colon.

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.
Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has very little fantasy upside at the plate, especially at the bottom of KC's lineup. Milone is off to a strong start to the season, as well. It'd be wise to look elsewhere at second base at FantasyScore this evening.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:08:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wade Davis, who should have been owned in the majority of leagues anyway, figures to see most save chances. He is a high-end reliever in the role, too. Continue to check back for updates on Holland's recovery and return timeline. He should be stashed in all leagues.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:57:49 -0700
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) is not expected to require a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost noted Infante could be available in an emergency Tuesday, April 21.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Infante to suit up for the game Tuesday, either. In the majority of seasonal leagues you can replace Infante with a healthy bat. Continue to check back for updates on when Infante will draw back into the lineup. Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) figures to see the majority of starts at the keystone, but he is a low-end option for FantasyScore players.

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.
Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has two hits in 10 at-bats to begin the year, and he's not much of an offensive force for the Royals, especially hitting at the bottom of the order. He's a low-end second base option at FantasyScore with Infante injured.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:11:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) missed the last two games due to a knee strain. He should be good to go for your FantasyScore lineups, and he's got a decent matchup against Gibson. Avoiding him in daily lineups tonight after a return from injury might be the smart play, however.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 12:32:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Currently, there is no indication Cain's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) absence is injury related, but he was hit by a pitch Sunday, April 19. It is worth checking back for updates, although it might just be an opportunity to allow Cain to take a breather, too. Dyson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a cheap flier for FantasyScore players Monday.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:12:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) last played Friday against the Oakland Athletics. If he returns tonight, he'd be facing Minnesota Twins starter Kyle Gibson, which is an attractive matchup. However, you may want to play it safe at FantasyScore and see how he fares after sitting over the weekend.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 16:48:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis established himself as one of the league's elite relievers with a left-on-base percentage of 87.5 last season and a strikeout rate of 13.63 batters per nine innings. Davis should be picked up in all but the shallowest of leagues.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 15:57:46 -0700
Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) left the team's game Sunday, April 19, against the Oakland Athletics with what he thought was a hamstring or groin injury. Christian Colon took his place.
Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be monitored and left off of your lineup until he gets the all-clear to return.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 14:20:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could have seen some action but the team wanted to give him another day to rest. You may want to wait one game to see how he looks before putting him back in when he starts.
