News
Gore was sent down to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gore earned his first at-bat of the season during Wednesday's blowout loss to the Nationals, and was demoted to Double-A Northwest Arkansas shortly after the game ended. During the season, Gore has only appeared four times as a baserunner and even though he steals nearly every time he is on base, his usage isn't good enough to be used in most fantasy formats.

News
Moustakas (thumb) went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Wednesday.

In a game that became very lopsided, Moustakas departed early in favor of Christian Colon. He'll get another day off Thursday before the Royals begin a weekend series in Cleveland on Friday evening.

News
Hochevar (elbow) should be available for Monday's game, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

The Royals held Hochevar out of Sunday's game due to elbow tightness, but apparently he's OK after a day of rest and could be summoned from the Kansas City bullpen if needed by Royals manager Ned Yost.

News
Wang pitched a scoreless inning, striking out two and picked up the win in Tuesday's comeback victory over the Nationals.

After giving up earned runs in three consecutive appearances, Wang has settled down considerably, not allowing a hit in his past three. He needed just 12 pitches to get through the inning before the Royals bats woke up against Jonathan Papelbon to give Wang his first MLB win since June 16, 2013-some 1,052 days. The 36-year-old has done an admirable job working in the back-end of the Royals' bullpen.

News
Dyson is not in the starting lineup against the Nationals on Monday, 610 AM in Kansas City reports.

The Royals are facing a lefty (Gio Gonzalez) for the second time in three games Monday, leaving Paulo Orlando in right field as the team's No. 9 hitter while Dyson is on the bench. For now, the Royals appear to have a strict platoon at the position.

Wade Davis, #17
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
109.20.00811
 
News
Davis worked around a hit with one strikeout in a scoreless inning to earn his eighth save of the season Sunday versus Seattle.

Davis has been lights out this season, as he has still yet to be scored on in 10 outings and is remains perfect in save opportunities. Davis was projected to be one of fantasy's top relief pitchers this year despite never spending an entire season as a primary closer, and he has lived up to the billing in the early going.

News
Hosmer went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Sunday versus Seattle.

The 26-year-old's impressive 18-game hitting streak came to an end Saturday, but he got right back to it Sunday, upping his average back to .333 with the pair of base-knocks. Hosmer's OPS sits at .912 through 24 games and he seems poised for another excellent season in the heart of the Royals lineup.

News
Volquez (3-2) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk over 7.2 innings with seven strikeouts in a tough loss Monday against the Nationals.

After allowing two runs in the first inning, Volquez settled in and absolutely locked down the Nationals. He induced 11 swinging strikes and nine ground ball outs, threw 20 first-pitch strikes to 29 batters and threw 72 strikes in 114 pitches to keep his team in the game. Unfortunately, Gio Gonzalez (six shutout innings) was better, but Volquez has given owners plenty to like this year. Other than a disaster last time out against the Angels (eight runs in five innings), Volquez has gone at least 5.2 innings and allowed two runs or less every time out.

News
Young allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Nationals.

Young was helped out by his bullpen, as Luke Hochevar recorded the final out of the fifth inning with the bases loaded. The Royals starter was shaky all day. He threw just 10 first-pitch strikes to 20 batters, drew just five swinging strikes in 85 pitches, and gave up a pair of home runs. Young has now gone three starts since his last quality start and now has a 5.76 ERA.

News
Morales, who started his 27th consecutive game to begin the 2016 season Wednesday, went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in a losing effort against Washington.

The Royals are off Thursday, which may leave Morales in the mix for all three games of the team's weekend series against Cleveland, but he's likely on track for a day off in the near future if his month-long slump continues. For the season, Morales is hitting .200/.248/.310 with two homers and eight RBI, a far cry from his .290/.362/.485 line that included 22 long balls and 106 RBI a year ago. In addition to the diminished line, Morales has posted a 22.0% K% thus far, after fanning at a 16.1% clip last season. Moreover, he's also walking less frequently (5.7% BB%) after reaching a career-high 9.1% BB% in 2015.

Yordano Ventura, #30

WLIPERABBK

News
Ventura (2-1) allowed five runs on three hits and six walks while striking out one over four innings to take the loss Saturday at the Mariners.

Ventura gave up a pair of homers in the first inning to fall behind by four runs in a game the Royals were shut out. After starting the season by not allowing more than two runs in any of his four outings, his first poor appearance of the season raised his ERA to 3.67 and his WHIP to 1.41. He'll make his next start Friday at the Indians.

News
Cain went 2-for-5 with the game-winning RBI single in Tuesday's comeback victory over the Nationals.

Cain is off to a rocky start this season, hitting just .240 on the season with two home runs and 10 RBI; however, over the past week, he's steadily improving. He's working on a six-game hitting streak with three multi-hit games over that span. Furthermore, he's hitting .308 with runners in scoring position. After hitting above .300 in each of the past two seasons, look for Cain to improve as the season wears on.

News
Kennedy earned his third win of the season Sunday against Seattle, allowing just one run with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings.

Kennedy was knocked around in his previous start, but he bounced back and was effective Sunday, although his elevated pitch-count truncated what could have been an even better outing. The Red Beard still has an excellent 2.61 ERA and a useful 8.4 K/9 rate on the season, and he will look to keep it rolling Saturday versus Cleveland.

News
Medlen gave up nine runs -- six earned -- on six hits over two innings in a start against the Nats on Wednesday.

Not surprisingly, he took the loss, dropping his season record to 1-3 in the process. Medlen has struggled with his control throughout his first five appearances this season, and he now sits with 17 walks in 22.1 innings over five starts. Even with his control woes, Medlen has held his own in three of his first five starts this season, likely keeping him in the mix as a starter in the coming weeks. He'll face the Yankees on the road in his next turn Tuesday, before a second start May 15 against Atlanta.

Escobar went 4-for-5 with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Escobar had been struggling mightily, with just one multi-hit game in his last 10 contests. His batting line is just .259/.288/.321 but he is at least making the most of the limited times he has been on base -- he already has seven stolen bases, putting him on pace for 43 this season.
