Royals | Salvador Perez starting

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:38:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (knee) is batting third and catching Tuesday, Aug. 19, against the Colorado Rockies. It will be Perez's 112th start behind the plate, which is the most in the majors this season.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has an excellent matchup against Tyler Matzek. Matzek has a 9.60 ERA in August, and he has allowed right-handed hitters to slash .300/.373/.498 against him, with a .379 wOBA. The game is being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field, too. It might be worth spending up to lock Perez in your lineup in daily games.

Royals | Not concerned about Salvador Perez's knee

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 21:18:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (knee) pinched a nerve in his patella while rounding second in the fifth inning of the team's game Monday, Aug. 18, but manager Ned Yost said he wasn't concerned about the injury.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Perez escaped with a minor injury, and at worst, he should be considered day-to-day. Still, make sure to check on his status for the next few days before inserting him into lineups.

Royals | Salvador Perez leaves game

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 20:18:11 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (knee) left the game Monday, Aug. 18, against the Minnesota Twins due to discomfort in his right knee. The team said his removal was a precautionary measure.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like a major concern, but don't be surprised if Perez sits Tuesday. Erik Kratz might be a cheap play for daily fantasy owners if he gets a start.

Royals | Jason Vargas dominant against A's

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:22:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas tossed a three-hitter in the victory over the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Aug. 13. The outing was his sixth career shutout. Vargas (9-5) retired the final 23 hitters he faced and had allowed four runs in just 4 1/3 innings the first time he faced the A's this year. He needed just 97 pitches in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas looked like the dominant pitcher he was earlier in the season. If he's still available in your league, he should be on a roster.

Royals | Norichika Aoki dominating lefties

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:13:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki went 2-for-3 against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, Aug. 13, and he raised his average to .358 against lefties this year.

Fantasy Tip: Believe it or not, Aoki is hitting for a better average against southpaws (.315) in his career than against righties (.270). Keep that in mind when playing the matchups with Aoki in daily leagues.
