    Royals' Edward Olivares: Likely to miss around six weeks

    The Kansas City Royals anticipate Edward Olivares will miss around six weeks after he was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained right quadriceps, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.Olivares had recently moved into an everyday role in the outfield in a domino effect of Adalberto Mondesi's (knee) season-ending injury, but his productive run as a regular in the lineup -- he had gone 11-for-22 with two runs, two RBI and a stolen base in his last seven games -- came to an abrupt end due to the quad issue. While Olivares could recapture steady at-bats once he's eventually healthy again, the projected six-week absence will make it tough for most fantasy managers to justify holding him during his prolonged stint on the shelf. MJ Melendez looks like he'll be the main beneficiary sans Olivares, as he drew starts while the latter was sidelined for the past two contests.

    Royals' Edward Olivares: Lands on IL

    The Kansas City Royals placed Edward Olivares on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained right quadriceps.Kansas City hasn't provided an update on the extent of the quad strain Olivares suffered in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Orioles, but his move to the IL a day later is an indication that the injury is more than a day-to-day situation. The injury comes at an inconvenient time for Olivares, who was in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak and had gained traction as the Royals' everyday right fielder and leadoff man. His move to the IL is expected to open up more opportunities for the likes of MJ Melendez and Kyle Isbel.

He went 1-for-2 with an RBI prior to exiting the contest.Olivares was pulled from the game shortly after he was visited by a trainer at first base following his RBI single. Michael Taylor came off the bench to pinch run for Oilvares, who can be viewed as day-to-day until the Kansas City Royals provide an update on the nature and extent of his injury. Even if his injury is deemed minor, Olivares is unlikely to return to the lineup for the second game of the doubleheader Sunday.

    Royals' Edward Olivares: Getting start against right-hander

    Edward Olivares will start in right field and bat leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.The righty-hitting Olivares was expected to fill a short-side platoon role in right field after Adalberto Mondesi's (knee) season-ending injury resulted in Whit Merrifield moving back to the infield last week, but the Kansas City Royals may instead be giving Olivares a trial in a near-everyday role. He'll remain in the lineup Tuesday over the lefty-hitting Kyle Isbel, despite the fact that the Cardinals are bringing a right-hander (Dakota Hudson) to the hill. Olivares, who also led off against Cardinals lefty Steven Matz in Monday's 1-0 loss, has gone 6-for-15 with a double, a stolen base and two runs over the Royals' last six games.

He also picked up his first steal since April 9. The outfielder appears set to see more playing time with Whit Merrifield moving back to second base.

He's expected to form the short side of a platoon with Kyle Isbel in right field going forward.
