Royals' Seuly Matias: Suffers oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias sustained a low-grade left oblique injury during Saturday's intrasquad game, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

The 21-year-old remained in the dugout for the remainder of the contest rather than seeking immediate medical attention, so it doesn't appear to be a serious concern. Matias spent 2019 at High-A Wilmington and had a .148/.259/.307 slash line with 98 strikeouts in 221 plate appearances. He won't be a factor in the majors this season, but his inclusion in the roster pool is a significant developmental opportunity.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

Matias is coming off a disastrous 2019 season during which he hit .148 with 98 strikeouts in 221 plate appearances at High-A prior to fracturing his left hand. He will be able to train with the Royals' best young prospects but probably won't be seeing any MLB action in 2020.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Out for remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias will miss the rest of the season with a fractured left hand, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

It was a brutal first couple months of the year for Matias and he won't get a chance to bounce back in the second half. Matias, who turns 21 in September, hit .148 with four home runs, two steals, 98 strikeouts and 25 walks in 221 plate appearances with High-A Wilmington. Few prospects can match his raw power, but of all prospects in the minors with 200-plus plate appearances, his 44.3 percent strikeout rate was the sixth-worst mark, and certainly the worst mark among notable prospects. It would be a pretty aggressive assignment for Matias to head to the Arizona Fall League, but he may be healed up in time for some form of winter ball.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Dealing with fractured hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias will be sidelined 4-to-5 weeks due to a fractured left hand, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Matias landed on the minor-league IL last week with what was originally thought to be a hand contusion; however, an X-ray revealed a fracture that the outfielder reportedly tried to play through. He'll be out of commission for at least the next month as a result.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Heads to MiLB IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias was placed on the 7-day injured list Thursday due to a bruised hand, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Matias reportedly suffered the injury after being drilled by a pitch on his hand, though he was able to avoid any broken bones. He'll be eligible to come off the shelf beginning June 20.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Suffers thumb laceration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias will miss the rest of Low-A Lexington's season after suffering a deep cut on his right thumb, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Matias sustained the injury in a bit of a freak accident as he loaded his luggage onto the team bus. The young outfielder -- who turns 20 on Sept. 4 -- will miss the last few weeks of Lexington's season, but the actual recovery timetable remains unclear. Matias has some extreme numbers this season, including a .231/.303/.550 slash line with 31 home runs and 131 strikeouts in 338 at-bats.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Connects on 24th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday for Low-A Lexington in its 5-3 loss to Columbia.

The long ball was Matias' 24th of the season, good for the most among all leagues in affiliated ball. The 19-year-old's credentials as a slugger aren't disputed, but he'll need to drastically reduce his 37 percent strikeout rate in order for him to hit for a high enough average to be a valuable asset when he reaches the big leagues.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Back from temporary inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias returned from the temporary inactive list Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Matias was away from Low-A Lexington for a family matter. The 19-year-old has showed impressive power this season, hitting 12 homers and slugging .640 in 31 games. Like many young sluggers, however, he's battling contact issues, striking out 34.4 percent of the time and hitting a mediocre .254.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Placed on temporary inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias was put on the temporary inactive list Thursday.

Matias will be away from the team for a few days while dealing with a family matter. Through 31 games with Low-A Lexington this season, Matias has been hitting .254/.328/.640 with 12 home runs and 26 RBI. Expect him back in the lineup next week.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Two long balls in Low-A debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in his debut for Low-A Lexington on Thursday against Charleston.

He wasn't facing any notable pitchers for the RiverDogs, but kicked off his full-season debut with a bang. Nobody questions Matias' prodigious power. The thing to watch this season is how well he hits and how much he strikes out against Low-A pitchers.

Royals' Seuly Matias: Inconsistent in second professional season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matias slashed .243/.297/.423 with seven home runs, 36 RBI and 27 runs over 57 games during 2017 in the Appalachian League.

The 19-year-old outfield prospect failed to show much growth from his 2016 campaign in the Arizona League. If Matias plans to dig his way out of the rookie leagues sooner rather than later, he'll need to improve his plate discipline and get on base more often. Still, there is massive upside, given his huge raw power.
