Royals' Whit Merrifield: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Merrifield has already lost his spot in the top third of the lineup and his playing time is now trending in the wrong direction, as Saturday's absence marks his fourth in the team's last seven games. He's batting just .180/.255/.260 for the month of July. Christian Colon will get the nod at second base Saturday.

Royals' Jarrod Dyson: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dyson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Paulo Orlando will shift over to center, opening the door for Brett Eibner in right, with the Royals facing a lefty starter (Cole Hamels) for the first time since the All-Star break. Dyson has hit safely in five of seven games since the intermission, including Monday when he smacked a grand slam -- his first home run of the season.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Continues dominance Friday versus Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (6-1) pitched 6.2 innings Friday, allowing one run, four hits and two walks while striking out four Rangers in the win.

Duffy continued the dominance he's shown through most of his starts this season. Despite beginning the season as a reliever, Duffy has made the most of his starting role and is now on pace to win double-digit games for the first time in his six-year career. The southpaw's only mistake Friday was solo shot given up to Rougned Odor, who is third in homers among AL second baseman. Duffy has been a pleasant surprise this year, and until he falters, owners should feel safe deploying him regardless of the matchup.

Royals' Wade Davis: Earns 21st save Friday against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Davis worked around a hit and struck out one en route to his 21st save of the season Friday against the Rangers.

Davis, who has made 88 career starts in his eight-year career, had totaled just 20 saves entering the season. He's now got more than that in 2016 alone, as the veteran has converted 21 of his 23 chances to close the door on opponents.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Runs Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (hamstring) ran on Friday and said he "felt great", Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

It's positive news for Cain as he is heading in the right direction as he nears the end of his rehab process. The 30-year-old will run again on Sunday and if he reports positively, will begin a rehab assignment on Monday. The outfielder was starting to hit his stride before landing on the DL at the end of June, slashing .340/.354/.447 in his last 12 games.
