    • Dozier played in just 33 minor-league games in 2017 due to injury, and finished the campaign with a .243/.341/.441 slash line through 111 at-bats. A strained oblique suffered in April, and a fractured wrist sustained in June cost Dozier significant playing time this year. The missed opportunities also contributed to the 26-year-old being left off the list of September callups. That said, the third baseman is expected to be right back in big-league camp come March, and assuming Mike Moustakas is lost in free agency, Dozier may even compete for an Opening Day roster spot in 2018.

    • Royals' Hunter Dozier: Playing through broken nose
      By RotoWire Staff

      Dozier recently fractured his nose, but continues to play through the injury at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports. It's been a wild campaign for the Royals' former first-round pick. Dozier has played in just 15 minor-league games this season due in part to a strained oblique suffered in April, a fractured wrist sustained in June and -- on a brighter note -- the recent birth of his first child. Dozier, who made his MLB debut last year, will look to find his stride quickly while a September call-up remains a possibility.

    • Royals' Hunter Dozier: 2017 turning into lost season
      By RotoWire Staff

      Dozier (wrist) may be moved to the 60-day DL to clear space on the 40-man roster for Brian Flynn, who is scheduled to return from a back injury this week, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports. The 25-year-old outfielder entered the campaign with high hopes, but a pair of injuries derailed Dozier's season. He's expected to miss most of the remaining 2017 schedule anyway, so bumping him from the 40-man makes sense. Dozier is a decent prospect for dynasty league owners to monitor, but he's likely off the radar until next spring.

    • Dozier suffered a left hamate (wrist) fracture and is back on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Omaha, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. He missed the first six weeks of the minor-league season with an oblique strain, and now might miss most of the rest of the season with a broken wrist. Dozier is not an elite prospect, and is mostly relevant because of his proximity to the big leagues. He can be cut loose in deep single-season formats.

    • Dozier (oblique) was reinstated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday. Dozier is ready to return from his rehab assignment after appearing in five games with High-A Wilmington and Triple-A Omaha; he went 5-for-16 (.313) with eight strikeouts. Without a clear path to everyday at-bats with the Royals, Dozier will stick with Omaha for the time being, though he should remain a top option in the minors should an opportunity arise with the big club.
