KANKansas City Royals
2014 Record: 10-10
#1 Jarrod Dyson
Apr 22: Dyson was 0-for-1 with a run scored before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Monday night. Dyson has logged just nine at-bats on the season, and even with Lorenzo Cain (groin) on the DL, he likely won't be an everyday player in manager Ned Yost's lineup. Yost intends to run a platoon with Dyson and Justin Maxwell in center field, meaning Dyson will likely only be in the lineup against right-handed pitching. Yost was consistent with this philosophy Monday night, as Dyson was lifted in favor of Maxwell when Cleveland lefty Marc Rzepcyznski relieved Zach McAllister in the seventh inning. Dyson, who has stolen 30 or more bases in each of the past two seasons, has fantasy potential, but needs to prove to Yost that he can get things going at the plate if he wants to see more than sporadic playing time.
