Royals' Lucas Duda: Tallies second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the White Sox.

Duda took Reynaldo Lopez deep in the second inning to tally the Royals' sole run of the game and his second homer of the season. He has seen inconsistent at-bats early in the campaign, with his most recent string of playing time coinciding with Billy Hamilton's absence from the lineup. He has taken advantage of recent at-bats, recording both of his homers within the last three games.

Royals' Lucas Duda: Blasts first bomb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and four RBI in a 9-8 victory against the Indians on Sunday.

The power lefty has been in the starting lineup for three straight games and finally broke through with a couple hits. He also hit his first homer of the year. Duda has poor overall numbers, but he's always been a very streaky hitter, so it's possible he's about to go on a real hot streak. Duda is hitting .182 with two extra-base hits, seven RBI and a run in 22 at-bats this season.

Royals' Lucas Duda: Third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda will serve as the Royals' designated hitter and will bat seventh Sunday against the Indians.

Duda finds himself in the lineup for the third game in a row, marking his longest stretch of consecutive starts this season. He's seen his opportunities increase by circumstance rather than merit, as Billy Hamilton's (knee) ongoing absence has created an extra spot in the lineup. Manager Ned Yost acknowledged that Hamilton might be ready to return to action Monday against the White Sox, so Duda's run of steady at-bats could soon come to an end.

Royals' Lucas Duda: Sitting versus righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

It wasn't surprising that Duda was held out of the lineup in Thursday's season opener with lefty Carlos Rodon on the hill for Chicago, but the slugger's absence Saturday is more conspicuous with a right-hander (Reynaldo Lopez) starting. Duda may be the odd man out for an everyday role at this point after manager Ned Yost said Saturday that Whit Merrifield would play more right field than anticipated this season, per Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com. Though Duda is expected to enter the lineup at DH on Sunday, those duties will mostly fall to Jorge Soler now that Merrifield has pushed him out of the outfield.

Royals' Lucas Duda: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox.

The White Sox are bringing a southpaw (Carlos Rodon) to the hill in the season opener for both squads, so it's not surprising that the lefty-hitting Duda is on the bench. Duda is expected to occupy the larger side of a platoon at designated hitter with Jorge Soler.
