Royals' Cam Gallagher: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals activated Gallagher from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday.

Fellow catcher Oscar Hernandez was designated for assignment in a corresponding move, clearing the way for Gallagher to take over as the No. 2 backstop behind Salvador Perez. While Perez will see the bulk of the work behind the dish, Gallagher will draw the start at catcher in the series finale Sunday with the White Sox while Perez receives a turn at first base, per Alec Lewis of The Athletic.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (illness) remains on Kansas City's COVID-19 injured list, but he's joined the team in Detroit ahead of Monday's series opener with the Tigers and is listed as a member of the taxi squad, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher's presence with the team suggests he's been fully cleared of the coronavirus after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month, but he may need to complete a few more workouts before the Royals are comfortable activating him. Once he's officially added to the 30-man active roster, Gallagher should serve as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Salvador Perez.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher has tested positive for COVID-19, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gallagher played in the team's intrasquad game Friday and said he felt great, but he found out Saturday that he tested positive for COVID-19. The 27-year-old is asymptomatic, but he'll need to self-isolate and have two tests come back negative before MLB protocol allows him to rejoin the team.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Set for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is poised to begin the season as Kansas City's No. 2 catcher after Meibrys Viloria was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on March 10, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Salvador Perez missed the entire 2019 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but the team signed Martin Maldonado -- who has since been traded to Houston -- and Gallagher received only 145 plate appearances in 45 games. Following the demotion of Viloria, Gallagher is the only backstop on the major-league roster besides Perez and figures to serve as the backup catcher. Gallagher had a .292/.320/.375 slash line with two doubles in nine contests prior to the suspension of spring training.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Starting spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) is starting behind the plate in Friday's Cactus League opener against the Rangers.

The 27-year-old was nursing an oblique issue but will start in the spring opener while Salvador Perez serves as the designated hitter. Gallagher is competing for the backup catching job with Meibrys Viloria in spring training.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Still not starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher remains on the bench Wednesday against Detroit.

Gallagher was activated from the injured list Sunday but has yet to start a game. During that span, Nick Dini has started once while Meibrys Viloria has gotten the call twice, including Wednesday's contest.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Gallagher returned from an oblique injury Sunday but didn't start that day's game. He'll remain on the bench for this contest, with Nick Dini getting the call behind the plate.

September 1, 2019 02:00 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) was officially activated from the injured list Sunday. He isn't included in the lineup for the Royals' series finale with the Orioles.

Gallagher had been sidelined since Aug. 7 with an oblique injury and is likely set to split time behind the dish with Meibrys Viloria and Nick Dini to close the campaign. For the season, Gallagher is hitting .238/.312/.365 in 45 games.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Expected back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) is expected to be activated from the injured list Sunday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher has been sidelined since Aug. 7 due to an oblique injury, but he's set to rejoin the Royals once rosters expand Sunday. He'll be eased back into action, likely only catching in emergency situations until he's fully healed. Prior to landing on the IL, the backstop compiled a .238/.312/.365 slash line across 45 games.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with left side tightness, and further testing revealed the backstop is dealing with a strained oblique and will require a stint on the injured list. Nick Dini had his contract selected from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move and should offer catching depth behind Meibrys Viloria while Gallagher is on the mend.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Scratched with side issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher was scratched from Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with left side tightness, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gallagher apparently picked up the injury during pregame batting practice. Meibrys Viloria is now starting at catcher and hitting seventh in place of Gallagher, who should be considered day-to-day.

August 6, 2019 06:40 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Sitting again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Gallagher will once again head to the bench, the third time he's done so in the last four days. Meibrys Viloria draws the start behind the dish and is set to bat eighth in Gallagher's stead.

August 5, 2019 03:32 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not in the lineup Monday against the Red Sox.

Gallagher owns a passable (for a catcher) but far from exciting .238/.312/.365 slash line on the season. He'll sit in favor of Meibrys Viloria for Monday's game.

August 3, 2019 02:32 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not starting Saturday against the Twins.

Gallagher hits the bench after starting five of the last seven games and homering in back-to-back contests. Meibrys Viloria will call the pitches in his absence.

August 3, 2019 01:40 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Pops third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 11-9 loss to the Twins.

The backstop went yard for the second straight game, although Gallagher only has three homers on the year. The 26-year-old has been productive to begin the second half, slashing .351/.442/.649 over his last 12 games, and while he won't maintain that pace, he could have fantasy value even in shallower formats as he handles the bulk of the workload behind the plate for the Royals.

July 30, 2019 02:32 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.

Meibrys Viloria will handle the catching duties after Gallagher was behind the dish for three of the past four games. Gallagher has gone 8-for-26 with five walks in nine contests since taking over as Kansas City's primary catcher after Martin Maldonado was dealt to the Cubs two weeks ago.

July 28, 2019 02:16 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Getting day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians.

He'll head to the bench for a routine rest after starting the past two games behind the plate. Meibrys Viloria will handle catching duties in the series finale.

July 25, 2019 02:32 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not in the lineup Thursday against the Indians.

Gallagher is slashing .300/.440/.500 with four doubles and two RBI in seven games since the All-Star break. He'll sit for a second straight game Thursday as Meibrys Viloria gets another start behind the dish in this one.

July 26, 2019 02:20 AM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Gallagher has been the top option behind the plate in Kansas City since the team traded Martin Maldonado to the Cubs, starting five of seven games prior to Wednesday's contest. Meibrys Viloria gets the nod in his absence.

July 20, 2019 02:28 PM
Royals' Cam Gallagher: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Cleveland.

Gallagher has alternated starts over the last five games and that trend continues Friday with Meibrys Viloria starting behind the plate. It's not fully clear how playing time will be divided following the departure of Martin Maldonado via trade, but the 26-year-old Gallagher figures to see increased opportunities, regardless.
