  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Rejoins big club for twin bill

    The Royals recalled Olivares from Triple-A Omaha ahead of Monday's doubleheader with Cleveland.

    Kansas City has designated Olivares as its 29th man for the doubleheader, so he could be sent back to Omaha once the twin bill concludes. Before his most recent demotion to Triple-A on Friday, Olivares went 8-for-41 (.195 average) with a home run, seven runs and six RBI in 18 games during a three-week stint with the big club.

If Olivares doesn't return to the majors during the season's final two weeks, he'll conclude the campaign with a .224/.280/.398 slash line, five homers and 12 RBI.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: On bench again Friday

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Not in lineup Thursday

    Olivares isn't starting Thursday's game against the Orioles.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Seeing steady playing time

    Olivares will start in right field and bat cleanup Monday against the Orioles.

    Starting for the seventh time in nine games, Olivares looks to have settled in as the Royals' primary right fielder over Ryan O'Hearn since being called up from Triple-A Omaha on Aug. 27. Olivares has produced a pedestrian .215/.267/.418 over 86 plate appearances, but as a 25-year-old who had some repute as a prospect, the Royals are expected to give him a long look in September.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Healthy scratch

    Olivares was removed from the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox but does not appear to be injured.

    Olivares' removal is the indirect result of the Royals' decision that Salvador Perez is ready to hit but not to catch after taking a foul ball off his neck Friday. Perez will shift from behind the plate to the designated hitter spot, pushing Carlos Santana to first base and Ryan O'Hearn to Olivares' spot in right field. Cam Gallagher takes Olivares' spot in the lineup and will catch in place of Perez.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Retreats to bench

    Olivares is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

    Olivares will take a seat after going hitless in 10 at-bats while starting in each of the past three games. With Adalberto Mondesi (oblique) returning from the injured list Wednesday and expected to see most of his initial starts at designated hitter, Olivares could lose out on reps while Hunter Dozier and Ryan O'Hearn pick up more work in right field.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Swats decisive homer in return

    Olivares went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run and a sacrifice fly in Friday's 12-inning victory versus Seattle.

    Olivares entered the contest as a defensive replacement in the seventh inning. In his first plate appearance, he registered a 10th-inning sacrifice fly that gave the Royals a brief lead. Olivares then belted a two-run homer in the 12th frame and that lead held up, as the Mariners could manage only one run in the bottom of the inning. The 25-year-old has gotten only 58 at-bats this year, but he's demonstrated good power in the limited sample, going deep five times. He's also notched nine RBI, eight runs and two stolen bases.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Recalled by Royals

    Olivares was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    Jarrod Dyson was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Friday, so Olivares will join the major-league roster as outfield depth. He's appeared in 20 big-league games this season and has slashed .246/.283/.456 with four homers, seven runs and six RBI.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Sent to Triple-A

    Olivares was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

    Olivares has been effective enough in limited action this season, hitting .246/.283/.456 with four homers and two steals in 60 plate appearances. With Andrew Benintendi healthy again after battling a shoulder issue, Olivares is apparently no longer needed, with the Royals calling up reliever Joel Payamps to take his place on the roster.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Not in Monday's lineup

    Olivares isn't starting Monday's game against the Yankees.

    Olivares had started each of the last two games, and he went 0-for-7 with a strikeout. Ryan O'Hearn will take over in right field while Salvador Perez serves as the designated hitter.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Heads to bench

    Olivares will sit Friday against the Cardinals.

    Olivares' reward for homering in back-to-back games and in four of his last six major-league appearances is a trip to the bench. Ryan O'Hearn will move out to right field with the designated hitter unavailable under National League rules.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Homers in back-to-back games

    Olivares went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

    Olivares slammed a solo shot off Reynaldo Lopez in the seventh inning to give the Royals a two-run lead. All four of his long balls this season have come in his last six games. The 25-year-old has taken advantage of his increase in playing time after the Royals traded Jorge Soler to Atlanta. On the season, Olivares is slashing .271/.300/.521 with five RBI, seven runs and a pair of steals in 50 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Swats solo shot

    Olivares went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-1 win over the White Sox.

    The outfielder drew the start in left field Wednesday with Andrew Benintendi (shoulder) sidelined. Olivares went yard in the second inning off White Sox starter Lucas Giolito. Regular playing time has suited Olivares well lately, as he's racked up four hits, including two long balls, in his last 11 at-bats. He's displayed both power (13 homers) and speed (12 stolen bases) in 52 games with Triple-A Omaha this year, so he could have some appeal in deeper fantasy formats if those skills translate at the major-league level.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Swipes bag Tuesday

    Olivares went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the White Sox.

    Olivares has gone 3-for-7 in his last two games, which coincides with him taking on a larger role. The 25-year-old is up to two stolen bases in as many attempts this year. He should remain in the lineup most of the time as long as he hits reasonably well, while Jarrod Dyson could also challenge for playing time in right field.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Clubs second homer

    Olivares went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Toronto.

    The 25-year-old was the only Royal to produce multiple hits Sunday. Olivares is up to two homers, three RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base through 39 plate appearances. He figures to get a chance as the everyday right fielder after Jorge Soler was traded to Atlanta.
