Brett Phillips Sent Down To Triple-A

Kansas City Royals outfielder Brett Phillips was sent back down to Triple-A to start the season.

Whit Merrifield Continues To Dial In

Kansas City Royals second baseman/utility man Whit Merrifield had a nice day on Friday as he smacked a pair of hits and scored two runs against the Giants in the team's win.

Billy Hamilton Primed To Perform

Kansas City Royals speedster Billy Hamilton may be one of the few hitters who will benefit from playing in a bigger park.

When the Kansas City Royals traded for outfielder Jorge Soler, he was expected to slot into the middle of their lineup right away. Instead, he's been an adventure.

Brad Keller Could Be Poised For Breakout

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Brad Keller was a Rule 5 pickup last year and instead of disappearing into the void like the vast majority of such claimed players, Keller was lights-out.

Jon Gray Dominant In Spring Training

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray has burned a lot of bridges in the fantasy community over the last couple years, but he’s once again showing why he’s a tantalizing asset.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore may be an incredibly exciting player, but his dry streak continued this week in San Francisco.
