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.

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.
