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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:46:26 -0700
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.
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:19:35 -0700
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.
