  • Michael Massey Could Return Friday

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals second baseman Michael Massey (back), who was placed on the injured list back on Opening Day due to lower back tightness, is closing in on returning to the major-league lineup and making his 2024 debut. Entering Wednesday's action, Massey is batting .407 (11-for-27) with six extra-base hits and eight RBI over six games on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha. He could rejoin the Royals as early as Friday for the start of a three-game weekend set versus the visiting Baltimore Orioles. The 26-year-old lefty-hitting infielder should serve as the club's everyday second baseman upon his imminent activation, with neither Adam Frazier nor Nick Loftin doing much to stand out at the keystone in the early stages of the season. With KC's lineup hitting well to begin the campaign, Massey is a name to watch for fantasy managers in AL-only or deep mixed leagues.

  • Michael Massey Resumes Rehab Assignment

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals second baseman Michael Massey (back) returned to his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with three RBI while playing seven innings in the field. After playing one rehab game at Double-A Northwest Arkansas and experiencing minor soreness, Massey felt good enough to play on Tuesday. Closing in on a return for KC, Massey likely still needs a few more rehab games before doing so. The 26-year-old lefty-hitting infielder has been on the injured list since Opening Day with lower back tightness, and the Royals hope it won't linger and Massey can return as their everyday second baseman after he slashed .229/.274/.381 with 15 home runs, 18 doubles, 55 RBI, and six stolen bases over 428 at-bats last season. Adam Frazier is filling in as the primary option at the keystone for now, but he's not doing enough to warrant consideration outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Massey To Start Rehab Assignment Friday

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals infielder Michael Massey (back) will start a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Friday. Massey suffered a lower-back strain in spring training in the middle of March and was forced to open the 2024 regular season on the injured list for the Royals. The 26-year-old infielder is nearing a return, though, and could make his season debut in KC at some point next week as long as he doesn't suffer a setback during his rehab assignment. The former fourth-rounder in 2019 out of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an infield bench option, at best, in deep-mixed and AL-only leagues when he's healthy. Massey hit just .229/.274/.381 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI and six stolen bases in 129 games in his first full season in the majors in 2023.

  • Michael Massey On Track For Rehab Assignment This Week

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals infielder Michael Massey (back) is progressing well and is playing in simulated games in Arizona and is on track to go on a minor-league rehab assignment this week, according to manager Matt Quatraro. Massey started the 2024 season on the 10-day injured list due to lower-back tightness that he experienced at the end of spring training, but Massey should be able to make his debut for the Royals sooner than later as long as everything goes well on his rehab assignment. In his first full MLB season for the Royals in 2023, Massey slashed .229/.274/.381 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, six stolen bases and 42 runs scored in 461 plate appearances. He'll be an option for fantasy managers in AL-only leagues when he returns to KC.

  • Michael Massey Expected To Start Season On The Injured List

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals second baseman Michael Massey (back) is expected to start the season on the injured list due to lower back tightness. Massey has been sidelined since Tuesday due to back tightness. He will likely miss the start of the season and could return sometime in mid-April. The 26-year-old slashed .229/.274/.381 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, 42 runs scored, and six stolen bases over 129 games in 2023. Adam Frazier and utilityman Nick Loftin should see extra playing time at second base with Massey sidelined. Despite receiving an uptick in at-bats, Frazier is mainly an option in deep-league formats heading into 2024 drafts.

  • Michael Massey Considered Day-To-Day

    Headshot for Michael Massey

    Kansas City Royals infielder Michael Massey (back) has been sidelined since being scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's game. The 25-year-old is reportedly dealing with lower-back tightness but is considered day-to-day. It sounds like Massey will continue to undergo treatment and will hopefully be ready to play in a few days. This spring, Massey is hitting .233/.233/.766 with two home runs and five RBI in 30 at-bats. It's tough to imagine Massey having much fantasy value heading into the season.

  • Picollo On Roles For Massey, Frazier

    The latest move in a busy Royals offseason brought veteran second baseman/left fielder Adam Frazier to Kansas City on a one-year deal. Though Frazier has a long track record as an everyday player, Kansas City general manager J.J. Picollo suggested following the signing that Michael Massey will still be the regular second baseman, with Frazier…

  • Adam Frazier Latches On With Royals

    Headshot for Adam Frazier

    Free-agent veteran infielder Adam Frazier signed a guaranteed one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Kansas City Royals on Saturday, according to a source. He'll get $2 million in 2024 and will have an $8.5 million mutual option for the 2025 season that includes a $2.5 million buyout. The 32-year-old veteran will give the rebuilding Royals some veteran leadership on the infield after he slashed .240/.300/.396 with a career-high 13 home runs, 21 doubles, two triples, 60 RBI, 11 stolen bases and 59 runs scored in 141 games with the Baltimore Orioles in 2023. He'll have a much better path to consistent playing time in KC than he did in Baltimore, and he could become the Royals' everyday second baseman over Michael Massey. For fantasy purposes, Frazier lacks power and will reside in a weak lineup, making him nothing more than a middle-infield option in deep mixed or AL-only leagues.
