Royals' Hunter Dozier: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hand) returned to the Royals' summer-camp workout Thursday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Just one day after suffering a right hand contusion when he was hit by a pitch during Wednesday's intrasquad matchup, Dozier was back on the field to take live at-bats. Barring any setbacks, the issue shouldn't impact the 29-year-old's availability as he prepares for the start of the regular season.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Sustains hand bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier was diagnosed with a right hand contusion after being hit by a pitch during Wednesday's intrasquad game, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The 29-year-old's removal appears to have been precautionary as manager Mike Matheny didn't appear concerned by the injury. Dozier could lay low for a couple days but figures to make a relatively quick return to the action.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier was removed from Wednesday's intrasquad game after being hit by a pitch in the area of his right hand/wrist, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.

The team may simply be expressing caution early in summer camp, though for now the severity of the injury remains unclear. Dozier had an .870 OPS with 26 homers and 84 RBI last season, and he is transitioning from third base to right field following the offseason addition of Maikel Franco.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Set for outfield role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier started in the outfield in nine of his 10 Cactus League games before the suspension of spring training.

It was reported in December the 28-year-old would work as Kansas City's primary right fielder in 2020 after the team acquired Maikel Franco, and the team was following through on that plan in spring training. Dozier made 20 appearances in right field last season, but he primarily played third base (100 games). Dozier had a .279/.348/.522 slash line with 26 home runs in 2019, and regardless of where he plays in the field, he figures to be near the top of the order for the Royals once the season eventually gets underway.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Likely transitioning to outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier will likely serve as the Royals' primary right fielder in 2020, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The Royals acquired Maikel Franco on Thursday, and he is likely to take over the primary third baseman role previously held by Dozier. Whit Merrifield will shift to center field to make room for Dozier in the outfield.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He went deep off Martin Perez in the fourth and fifth innings, but despite Dozier's best efforts the Kansas City offense just couldn't keep pace with Minnesota's. The 27-year-old's breakout season continues, as Dozier is slashing .286/.375/.558 with five homers and 14 RBI in 20 games since the All-Star break.

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.

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: 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.
