2015 MLB Season Preview: Kansas City Royals likes and dislikes
The Kansas City Royals had a very likable back end of the bullpen in 2014. Should you still like it? What about their power issues -- were they addressed in the offseason? See what is to like and dislike about the AL champs.
2015 MLB team preview: Kansas City Royals
Our final team preview checks in with the reigning American League champs. They can do it again, but the American League Central will be improved, so it won't be easy.
|2014 summary: For the third season in a row, Jarrod Dyson stole 30 or more bases, finishing with a career-high 36. With just 66 starts in the outfield, Dyson did not play enough to be a major factor in most points leagues, but his steals alone landed him among the top 75 outfielders in standard Rotisserie leagues.
Playing time status: For most of the season, Dyson received semi-regular playing time, but that had dried up by September. He could be the Royals' fourth outfielder in 2015, but he could also be relegated to a defensive replacement and pinch-running role.
2015 outlook: Dyson's sole contribution to Fantasy is as a base-stealer, but he's been a consistent producer in the category, even with limited playing time. Dyson can go undrafted in all standard mixed league formats, but he's worth targeting in deeper mixed and AL-only Roto leagues.
