Jarrod Dyson is going on bereavement leave. Royals will make a corresponding move for a position player Friday morning.
Just when he had a chance to provide some discounted value for fantasy owners he will now be out for a couple games, but is still worth owning in AL only leagues for his stolen base potential while Lorenzo Cain is on the disabled list. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
