Royals' Jake Junis: Tagged for six runs Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (8-3) took the loss after allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk in 5.2 innings Monday against the Yankees. He struck out four batters.

Junis was hit hard in this one, as five of the seven hits he conceded went for extra-bases, including a pair of homers by Aaron Judge and Greg Bird. It was a rare blowup for Junis, as Monday marked the first time since June 29 that the 25-year-old allowed more than three runs in a start; he owned a 2.42 ERA and 38:5 K:BB across eight starts (48.1 innings) over that stretch. Junis will look to get back on track and finish his rookie season on a high note, with his final start lined up for Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Seeing as Arizona has already clinched home-field advantage in the NL wild-card game, they may end up resting some regular starters.

Royals' Brandon Moss: Not in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moss is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Moss will head to the bench for a second straight game as Lorenzo Cain takes over DH duties in his place. Manager Ned Yost has been deploying position players as his designated hitter recently to give them a game off their feet, so Moss could lose out on a few starts in the final week if that trend continues.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Gets breather Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

It's been a trying year at the plate for Gordon, but the 33-year-old is hitting a respectable .288/.356/.545 with four homers in 66 at-bats over his last twenty starts. He'll get the day off as Melky Cabrera, Paulo Orlando and Jorge Bonifacio hold down the outfield for Kansas City (from left to right).

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Hits 15th long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the White Sox.

Cain's third-inning long ball off starter Lucas Giolito was all the offense his team could muster in this one. He's just one home run shy of matching his career high of 16 from 2015 and needs only three more steals to reach his previous high of 28.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Disappoints in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (4-13) took the loss Sunday against the White Sox after allowing five runs on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings.

After producing a strong outing on extended rest last time out, Kennedy returned to subpar form in this one. He surrendered long balls to Avisail Garcia and Kevan Smith while seeing his ERA balloon to 5.50. That mark is unlikely to come down in Kennedy's final start Saturday against Arizona.
