Royals place Hunter Dozier on paternity list

The Kansas City Royals placed infielder Hunter Dozier on the paternity leave list.

What It Means:

Dozier will be away from the club for 1-3 days, per MLB policy. The Royals recalled Maikel Garcia from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding roster move. Bobby Witt will be on the hot corner in place of Dozier for Monday's series opener against right-hander Joe Ryan and the Minnesota Twins. Nicky Lopez will shift to shortstop while Michael Massey makes a start on second base and bats fifth.

Massey has a $2,300 salary on Monday and numberFire’s models project him for 7.6 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Royals’ implied total (3.43) is No. 22 out of 26 active teams today.
