Description: While facing Kansas City's Bruce Chen has helped teammates Johnny Damon and Michael Brantley in fantasy, it's had the opposite effect on second baseman Jose Lopez. He's hitting .111 in 18 at bats against the Royals lefty.
Insight: Lopez is 1-for-10 in his last four games so he's not coming into the final game of the series with any momentum. The unfavorable matchup with Chen (7-9, 5.49 ERA) only makes things worse. Sit Lopez (.242, 4 HRs, 28 RBIs) on Thursday and hopes he finds his swing again this weekend in Detroit.
