Description: Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting eighth, again, in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.
Insight: Ned Yost is sticking with the same lineup that won Game 3 in San Francisco on Friday. We would too. The added defense paid huge dividends, and Alex Gordon came through with a huge hit in the No. 2 spot.

Description: Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting eighth in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.
Insight: In the big AT&T Park, Royals manager Ned Yost went with his best defensive lineup. Lorenzo Cain moves to right field, and Nori Aoki is on the bench. Alex Gordon will bat second, and Mike Moustakas will hit fifth.

Description: Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson went 3-for-3 with two RBI and two steals Monday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Dyson (.305, 12 SB) has taken a starting job from Norichika Aoki and bumped Lorenzo Cain to right field. He has tremendous stolen base potential, having swiped 76 bags since 2012 despite getting just 610 at-bats in that span.

Description: Kansas City center fielder Jarrod Dyson will again bat in the leadoff spot on Saturday with Norichika Aoki sidelined by injury.
Insight: Dyson (.296, 0 HR, 7 RBI, 14 runs, 10 SB) is having a better than expected season to date.
7/6/2013 7:45:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Jarrod Dyson crushed three hits Saturday in a win over Oakland.
Insight: He also stole two bases. Dyson (.269, 2 HR, 10 RBI, 12 SB) has seen a little more playing time recently due to Lorenzo Cain's struggles but he still isn't a fantasy option.

Description: Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson missed about a month with a sprained ankle, but has been activated in time for Saturday's game.
Insight: He's activated, but not starting as the Royals go with Lorenzo Cain, Jeff Francoeur and David Lough. Dyson (.268, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 6 SB) could be a solid fantasy contributor if he played every day, but that isn't likely to happen.

Insight: Dyson (.268, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 6 SB) could be a solid fantasy contributor if he played every day but that hasn't happened this season (41 at bats in 18 games). With Lorenzo Cain (.323, 1 HR, 22 RBI) occupying center field, it's going to be tough for Dyson to see regular at bats.

Description: Kansas City outfielder Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Texas due to a strained lat muscle.
Insight: Dyson has provided fantasy owners with speed, accumulating 25 steals in 29 attempts over just 88 games. He could also be a 20 HR guy if given an entire season of work as he's got nine this year in 267 at-bats.
