Royals send down Fuentes, add Calixte for infield depth
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The Royals recalled infielder Orlando Calixte and optioned outfielder Reymond Fuentes down to Triple-A Omaha, per the Kansas City Star. Calixte began the minor-league season with a .154 batting average (4 for 26) with two walks, three runs scored, a double, a home run and an RBI in seven games.
The move gives Kansas City infield depth after Alcides Escobar went down with a left knee sprain and contusion. Christian Colon got the start at shortstop in Escobar's place on Saturday.

|(4/17/15) The Royals have performed an outfielder swap, sending Terrance Gore to the minors and promoting Reymond Fuentes.
Gore received no at-bats after his call-up Wednesday. Fuentes, who played briefly for San Diego in 2013, was off to an 8-for-18 start for Triple-A Omaha.
Padres flip Reymond Fuentes for Royals pitcher Kyle Bartsch
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(11/20/14) The Padres have traded Reymond Fuentes to the Royals for pitcher Kyle Bartsch, according to MLB.com.
The 23-year-old Fuentes hit .294/.363/.416 over two minor-league levels last year. Bartsch posted a 2.29 ERA in High A over 55 innings.
Reymond Fuentes could provide cheap steals
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(8/27/13) If the name Reymond Fuentes sounds familiar to you, it's because he was the other guy who came over to the Padres in the deal that sent Adrian Gonzalez to the Red Sox for top prospects Anthony Rizzo and Casey Kelly three years ago. While at the time, Fuentes wasn't highly regarded as those two, he was a prospect in his own right. He just took a little longer to arrive.
But arrive he did Monday, starting in center field for the Padres. Considering they've relied on light-hitting Alexi Amarista as their primary option at that position for the better part of this season, Fuentes should get a chance to play regularly, if only against righties
So what can he do for you in Fantasy? Like I said, he has a definite pedigree, and though he fell off the map with his struggles at Double-A San Antonio last year, he came back strong with a .330 batting average, .861 OPS and 35 steals in 400 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A this year. And he arrives red hot, batting .418 (23 for 55) for Triple-A Tucson at the time of his promotion.
Fuentes won't hit many homers, but he should get on base enough to make an immediate impact in steals, even in a platoon role. I wouldn't value him over Rajai Davis, Emilio Bonifacio or even L.J. Hoes if I needed help in that category, but he's another useful alternative.
