Royals' Hunter Dozier: Breaking out of slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in an 11-0 victory against the White Sox on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old came into the night hitting just .214 with no home runs in July, but he now has five hits, including a homer and a double, in the last two games. Perhaps he's finally breaking out of his slump. Dozier hit only .194 in June after missing the first 18 games of the month. For the season, he's batting .287 with 14 home runs, 50 RBI, 37 runs and one steal in 268 at-bats.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: On base three times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Dozier reached base three times but it wasn't nearly enough as the Royals would lose 11-4. He's now hitting .231/.318/.462 in 10 games since returning from a side injury.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Slugs game-winning grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-6 win over Cleveland.

The 27-year-old played hero in this one, taking Cleveland closer Brand Hand deep in the ninth inning to flip the script on what had been a 6-3 deficit coming into the frame. Dozier's now gone yard twice in his last three games and is quickly returning to his pre-injury form, slashing .302/.387/.585 on the year with 13 homers and 42 RBI in 57 games.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Two extra-base hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Twins.

After being reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Dozier started all three of the Royals' games against Minnesota, going 3-for-11. The slugger will be back in action Monday as the Royals' starting second baseman and cleanup hitter in the series opener with the Indians.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) was activated from the 10-day injured list on Friday.

Dozier hasn't played in a big-league game since May 30. He initially appeared to be on track for a minimum-length stay on the injured list but wound up requiring a brief rehab stint, in which he went 5-for-14 over three games for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll return to his everyday role at third base and will look to continue his surprising breakout season and build on his .314/.398/.589 slash line.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Beginning rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier will start a rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Dozier is expected to spend three days with the Naturals before joining his wife Thursday for the birth of his child. He'll then be sent to Triple-A Omaha on Friday, where he'll finish out the remainder of his rehab stint. It was initially reported that Dozier could return sometime during the Royals' upcoming series with the Mariners, but given this most recent timetable, it looks as though he'll remain on the injured list at least until the weekend.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Could return early next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) took swings off a tee Saturday and could be activated for Kansas City's upcoming series at Seattle, which runs Monday through Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Dozier completed a batting practice session Friday and has shown no issues with the side soreness that landed him on the injured list June 3. Manager Ned Yost was originally targeting a Thursday return for the 27-year-old, but his recent rehab progress has apparently bumped up that timeline a couple days.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Scheduled for BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Dozier (side) will begin taking batting practice Friday in Minnesota, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Yost didn't rule out the possibility of Dozier returning from the injured list without going out on a rehab assignment, though whether that happens will likely depend on how the third baseman responds to his upcoming BP sessions. Either way, Dozier appears to be inching closer to rejoining the Royals.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Likely headed for rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Dozier (side) will likely require a rehab assignment before rejoining the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

There was some hope that Dozier would be cleared to return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, though it now appears the third baseman will be sent out on a brief minor-league rehab stint before being activated. Yost noted that Dozier will start taking batting practice in the next day or two before joining a minor-league affiliate, suggesting his return likely won't come until early next week. In the meantime, look for Cheslor Cuthbert and Kelvin Gutierrez to continue filling in at the hot corner.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Not in lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers.

There was some hope that Dozier would return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, but his absence from the lineup suggests the Royals will have to wait at least one more day before getting the third baseman back. While Dozier appears to be on the cusp of a return, the Royals have yet to indicate when exactly he'll be activated. In the meantime, Kelvin Gutierrez is starting at the hot corner and hitting fifth Wednesday.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Could return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) could be activated from the injured list Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Dozier is already eligible to return from the injured list and is very close to doing so. He did infield work, hit off a tee and sprinted Tuesday, and felt good afterward, so the odds appear good for him to return and reclaim a starting role soon.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

Dozier has been nursing right-sided thorax tightness since Thursday; while he was hoping to return to the lineup Tuesday, it turns out he'll need at least another week to get right. The move is retroactive to May 31, making Dozier eligible to return June 10, should he prove ready after a minimum stay on the shelf. The Royals are expected to announce a corresponding roster move prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. Cheslor Cuthbert has been filling in at the hot corner recently, though Kelvin Gutierrez -- who is a candidate to replace Dozier on the active roster -- could also see time at third base while Dozier is on the shelf.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Aiming for return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (side) is optimistic he can take dry swings Saturday, swing off a tee Sunday, and then return to the lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

This would be the best-case scenario for Dozier, who likely won't know more about his timetable until he picks up a bat Saturday. With Dozier out of the mix at least until Tuesday, Cheslor Cuthbert figures to see time at the hot corner.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (chest) isn't starting Friday's game against the Rangers, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Dozier departed Thursday's matchup with tightness on the right side of his chest, though the Royals have yet to provide an additional update on his condition. With Dozier on the bench, Cheslor Cuthbert draws the start at the hot corner and will hit sixth.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier exited Thursday's game against the Rangers with right-sided thorax tightness, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Dozier was removed from the contest in the fifth inning, and it's since been revealed that he was dealing with tightness in his chest. He's likely headed for further testing to determine the severity of the injury.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Posts four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run in an 8-7 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Dozier registered three singles and blasted a fastball over the fence in left-center field off Domingo German. He continues his impressive campaign, hitting .281/.360/.510 with four home runs over the last month.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Drives in three against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 11-5 win over the Rangers.

The 27-year-old had another big night in what is shaping up to be a huge breakout season. Dozier is now slashing .321/.413/.620 through 38 games with nine homers, 22 runs and 24 RBI, and while he's slowed down a little after a blistering April, he's still hitting .275 (14-for-51) so far in May with half his knocks going for extra bases (four doubles, a triple and two home runs).

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Slugs ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Astros.

He took Gerrit Cole deep in the fourth inning for his ninth homer of the year, and his second in as many games. Dozier hasn't missed a beat since sitting out two games with a sore back in late April, hitting safely in 10 of the last 11 games, and he now sports a dazzling .348/.448/.688 slash line through 32 contests.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Hits game-tying homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and walk in a 5-2 loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

The 27-year-old hadn't hit a home run since April 22, but he tied the game with one swing during the eighth. Despite few home runs in the last two weeks, Dozier has eight long balls this year. He also has nine other extra-base hits, helping him post a .667 slugging percentage. Dozier is hitting .343 with 18 RBI, 17 runs and one steal in 108 at-bats as well.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Powers offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier went 4-for-5 with two triples, a run scored and four RBI in Saturday's 9-4 win over the Angels.

He slotted in as the DH again in an effort to keep the strain on his sore back to a minimum, but Dozier ruined those plans with a lot of running around the bases, slugging two-run triples in the third and fifth innings. The performance pushed the 27-year-old's slash line up to a stunning .350/.442/.713 with seven homers, 13 runs and 16 RBI.
