The Fantasy Fix:
Kansas City Royals
Wil Myers (credits below) It’s that point in the season again. Your fantasy team is becoming a little stagnant and you need to make a little push, but you can’t afford to make a trade. In AL or NL-Only leagues, the waiver wires are so thin that it’s nearly impossible to make a huge claim for a guy whose already in the majors and will make a big difference. That’s why you should add a few minor-leaguers to your roster now. While they won’t have an impact right away, they’ll be soon called up as their Super Two status is accrued or they get the few extra reps they need in the minor leagues. Here are a few candidates for players who could make a big impact in the second half.Wil Myers | OF | Kansas City Royals While fantasy owners are disappointed that Wil Myers is no longer a catcher, he can still present real value in the outfield, especially in AL-Only leagues. Myers had a tough go of it last year when he hit .254 with 8 home runs in AA, but that lack of numbers was mainly due to so...

Kansas City Royal third baseman Mike Moustakas received a rude surprise while running down a foul ball at Oriole Park on Friday, as a Baltimore security guard bumped into Moustakas while attempting to get out of the way.
I remains to be seen if Moustakas or any Royal player could have gotten to the ball, however, there is no doubt that the reaction by the Royal color commentator...
Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer hit a rare infield double in the seventh inning of Saturday's game at Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles. Hosmer chopped a slow grounder down the third base line that looked like it might roll foul. Orioles catcher Matt Weiters, pitcher Darren O'Day and third baseman Wilson Betemit all chose to watch the ball roll down...
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP
During Friday night’s Baltimore Orioles vs. Kansas City Royals game, the dangers of being on a field during a baseball game were apparent when Royals third baseman, Mike Moustakas, collided with a Baltimore Orioles security guard.
Orioles’ Robert Andino hit the fly ball that made Moustakas, left fielder Alex Gordon, and shortstop Alcides Escobar converge to foul territory. Meanwhile...
The Kansas City Royals failed at their pre-season pitch to their hometown faithful of the fact that this is truly the time the Royals will start winning. Along with the rest of the fans around the midwest I drank the Kool-Aid and believed that this could be our year. Now that being said this team is still going to win ballgames this season and at times will show glimpses of what...

Felipe Paulino has pitched 150 innings as a member of the Kansas City Royals. In that time, his record is just 6-7, but he has compiled a 3.66 ERA with 148 strikeouts in 24 starts and one relief appearance. By Royals' standards, and even major league standards, his ERA and other pitching statistics are impressive considering the American League is known for its hitting...
Found out why the Orioles are in first place, as even their security guards assist the team, like this one here taking Mike Moustakas out of the play and hobbling him temporarily. Genius. Honestly, this is the perfect Hunter Pence GIF, isn’t it? Everything he does is awkward, and him losing the ball in the
