Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Loses work to Hanser Alberto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

On the bench for a third straight game, O'Hearn looks to have lost hold of a strong-side platoon role for Kansas City. Hanser Alberto will make his third start in as many days in place of O'Hearn, who is hitting .219 with a pair of solo home runs since his April 23 call-up.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn isn't starting Saturday's game against the White Sox.

O'Hearn will be out of the lineup for a second straight game after he went hitless with a walk and four strikeouts in his last four at-bats. Salvador Perez will serve as the designated hitter while Sebastian Rivero starts behind the plate.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn will head to the bench Friday with lefty Carlos Rodon starting for Chicago. Jorge Soler will serve as the designated hitter while Hunter Dozier moves to right field for Kansas City.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Kansas City is giving catcher Salvador Perez a day off from duties behind the plate but keeping his bat in the lineup as the designated hitter, so O'Hearn will head to the bench to make room for him. Since his April 23 call-up, O'Hearn has emerged as Kansas City's primary DH against right-handed pitching. Over five games, O'Hearn has gone 3-for-18 with two solo home runs and three walks.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Second homer in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in an 11-3 rout of Minnesota on Saturday.

Since being recalled from the alternate training site O'Hearn has started on a part-time basis, batting 3-for-18 with two home runs. He's always been a power bat and with regular appearances O'Hearn could sustain value in deeper leagues.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Sitting out in Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Pittsburgh.

Since the Royals don't have the designated hitter available in Pittsburgh, O'Hearn will remained sidelined for the second straight day. Kansas City will resume American League play Friday in Minnesota, so O'Hearn should soon reclaim a regular spot in the lineup versus right-handed pitching.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Not starting in NL park
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.

O'Hearn started three of the Royals' first four games after making his season debut Friday, going 2-for-10 with a homer and a pair of walks. With the team now heading to a National League park for a two-game series, someone has to miss out. That someone will be O'Hearn on Tuesday.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Draws second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn will serve as the Royals' designated hitter and bat fifth Sunday against the Tigers, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

O'Hearn will be rewarded with a second start against a right-handed pitcher (Michael Fulmer) after he went yard and drew a pair of walks in his season debut Friday. The Royals will likely keep O'Hearn on the bench against left-handed pitching, but so long as he can remain productive against right-handed pitching, the 27-year-old may be able to hold down the strong side of a platoon at designated hitter.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Hits solo shot in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Friday's 6-2 win over the Tigers.

He went yard off Tigers starter Casey Mize in the fourth inning. The 27-year-old O'Hearn had all of two homers in 42 games for the Royals last year, although he hit 14 in 105 contests in 2019. He batted fifth and served as the designated hitter Friday. It remains to be seen how often he'll play while he's on the big-league roster. Carlos Santana has an everyday job at O'Hearn's natural first base position, while Jorge Soler will often be the designated hitter.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn was recalled from the alternate training site Friday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old missed out on the Opening Day roster but will join Kansas City ahead of Friday's series opener in Detroit. O'Hearn had a .604 OPS in 132 plate appearances during 2020 and should provide depth at first base and DH behind Carlos Santana and Jorge Soler.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Roster bid falls short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals optioned O'Hearn to their alternate training site Tuesday.

Since Carlos Santana and Jorge Soler are expected to handle everyday roles at first base and designated hitter, respectively, O'Hearn offers limited value to the Royals as a first baseman with no positional flexibility. He'll continue to play regularly in simulated games at the alternate site before reporting to Triple-A Omaha in May for the start of the minor-league season.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Hot start to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Reds.

O'Hearn has put on quite a display of power early on this spring, slugging three homers in four exhibition games. He's unlikely to find significant playing time once the regular season starts due to the addition of Carlos Santana, though he's making a case for a bench spot with his early performance.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Losing out on primary 1B job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Sitting against a right-handed starting pitcher for the second straight game, O'Hearn seems to have surrendered primary duties at first base to Hunter Dozier. The 27-year-old O'Hearn has gone 1-for-24 at the dish over his last eight games, dropping his season-long slash line to .206/.310/.320.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is not starting Friday against the White Sox, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

O'Hearn has just a .654 OPS this season, a near match for his .650 mark from last year. Hunter Dozier again moves in to play first base Friday, with Whit Merrifield sliding over to right field and Edward Olivares starting in center.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

O'Hearn typically doesn't sit out against right-handers like Cleveland's Triston McKenzie, but manager Mike Matheny may have just wanted to give the 27-year-old a day to clear his head after he went 0-for-12 with six strikeouts over the previous three games. Ryan McBroom will bat fifth for Kansas City and will spell O'Hearn at first base.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs, two RBI and a walk during Saturday's win over the White Sox.

O'Hearn went without a homer through his first 21 games of the season, but he now has two in the past four games. The 27-year-old has a .260/.360/.411 slash line with five doubles, six runs and 17 RBI in 25 games.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Finally notches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

O'Hearn has struggled to generate run production, especially lately. He entered Tuesday with one hit, two RBI and zero runs scored in his last 18 at-bats (seven games). O'Hearn ceded a start at first base to Hunter Dozier last weekend, but the Royals clearly have not lost all patience, so expect to continue seeing O'Hearn in the heart of the order against right-handed pitching.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

On the bench for the second straight day, O'Hearn's status as the Royals' top first baseman may be on thin ice. He's supplied an uninspiring .613 OPS on the season, and that mark has dropped all the way to .484 over his last 10 games. Hunter Dozier replaces O'Hearn at first base in the series finale.

Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Retreats to bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is not starting Saturday against the Twins, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

It is uncommon for O'Hearn to sit against a right-hander but after only coming up with one hit in his last 16 at-bats, he will get a breather as Ryan McBroom will get the start at first base in his absence.

August 17, 2020 04:16 PM
Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Hearn is not starting Monday against Minnesota.

O'Hearn sits with lefty Devin Smeltzer expected to follow right-handed opener Matt Wisler. Ryan McBroom starts at first base in his absence.
