Royals' Jorge Soler: Not coming off DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list Friday and will continue a rehab assignment through May 10, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Royals GM Dayton Moore said the 25-year-old will spend some extra time with Triple-A Omaha "to get some at-bats and get caught up." Soler began a minor-league rehab assignment last Friday, 26 days after sustaining a Grade 1 oblique strain during the final week of spring training. Moore also noted that the club would like to see him get log more innings playing the field, pointing out that he missed valuable time late in camp due to the ailment. Jorge Bonifacio will continue filling in until Soler is ready to return.

Royals' Christian Colon: Hardly seeing playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colon is 1-for-11 with three strikeouts and a walk to begin the season.

Colon is simply a utilityman destined for plenty of bench time, given that he no longer has any options to the minors. The Royals infield seems pretty set, with Whit Merrifield, Cheslor Cuthbert and Raul Mondesi Jr. all essentially ahead of him on the second-base depth chart. Once Jorge Soler (oblique) returns from the DL, which does not seem imminent, questions regarding Colon's future with the Royals will definitely come to the forefront.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Goes 3-for-5 against White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer went 3-for-5 with a triple during Wednesday's loss to Chicago.

It's been a dreadful start to the season for the first baseman, as Hosmer sports a .220/.273/.293 slash line. Patience will likely pay off, though. His three-year averages entering 2017 went to the tune of 77 runs, 17 home runs, 85 RBI and a .278/.338/.432 line, and he improved significantly each of the past two seasons. Expecting his 2016 numbers might be asking too much, but Hosmer's track record suggests this is a potential buy-low spot.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Allows four runs to White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (0-2) surrendered four runs on seven hits while striking out five batters over six innings during Wednesday's loss to Chicago.

Karns has allowed 10 runs through 10.2 innings over his past two starts and sports a 6.26 ERA for the season. He flashed potential during his rookie campaign in 2015 with a 3.67 ERA and 8.9 K/9, but he couldn't stick in the Seattle rotation last year and pitched out of the bullpen over the final two months of the season. It's probably best to wait for Karns to string together a few solid outings before relying on him in most fantasy settings.

Royals' A.J. Puckett: Developing third pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puckett is working to develop a third pitch -- a curveball -- in hopes of climbing through the Royals' farm system Damien Sordelett of MiLB.com reports.

The Royals' second-round pick in 2016 was primarily a fastball-changeup pitcher at Pepperdine University, but he understands that having a third weapon in the arsenal is required for professional success. The 6-foot-4 200-pounder has thrived in his first three starts this season with High-A Wilmington, where he is 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 17 innings. The 22-year-old is the club's No. 5 pitching prospect and should be on the radar across all dynasty formats.
