Tough news out of KC, Alex Rios will be shelfed for while with a broken hand. Dyson is a great addition for anyone in need of stolen bases, the guy has tremendous speed. He was projected with 28 steals to begin the year, and that was him being the fourth outfielder.

Where does he project to bat in the lineup? 7th?

That would be my guess, possibly 9th and move Infante and Perez up. The way Kansas City is swinging the bats, he has great value wherever he hits.

FWIW, Dyson batting 9th tonight. Probably a better scenario than batting 7th, for him. Stinks to miss out on potential PA, but more Run potential there at least.

With guys like Perez, Infante so deep in the order, it is hard to say there is a bad spot in that lineup. The Royals 1-9 look very solid here early.

Agreed here, but he is a great source of steals, with that being said he shouldn't be owned in super deep leagues, as his number probably will not suffice you benching another guy. Unless you play H2H and it's saturday and you're losing in SBs and want to hope that you win in that cat, then I would pass.

I have to agree. Deep roto leagues he might since to through some FAAB money that way and run with him for a couple weeks while he's in the lineup but in those type of leagues he's probably already a reserve for a team.

FWIW I picked him up for Thursday's games in my h2h league as well. If you've got a deep bench or you're in a deep league he's a great source of steals but outside that I'm not sure he's that exciting even when playing - the Royals did such a great job of pinch running with him that having him as a starter doesn't add a ton of value.

I ended up dropping him. Doesn't look like he has been getting much playing time.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)
