Royals' Hunter Dozier: Five hits in win

Dozier went 5-for-5 with a double, an RBI and four runs scored in Friday's 14-10 win over the Rockies. Dozier enjoyed the series opener in Colorado, turning in his best game of the year at the dish. The impressive showing at the plate lifted his batting average 37 points from .240 to .277, and it was a good bounce-back effort after going 0-for-7 in his last two contests.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Sitting out Tuesday

Dozier is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. He'll sit for the second time in three games as the Royals clear a spot in the lineup at designated hitter for recent call-up MJ Melendez, who will make his MLB debut Tuesday. Dozier still looks to be fairly secure in a regular role, but his underwhelming .680 OPS on the season may put him at risk of losing out on at-bats if he's unable to show dramatic improvement in his subsequent starts.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Not in Thursday's lineup

Dozier will sit Thursday against the White Sox, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. Dozier has crushed the ball to the tune of a 19.0 percent barrel rate this season, though a lack of walks and a few too many whiffs have limited him to a merely good .241/.279/.466 slash line (117 wRC+). He'll get a rest Thursday, with Salvador Perez serving as the designated hitter.

Royals' Hunter Dozier: Goes yard in win

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Twins. Dozier put the Royals ahead for the first time in the bottom of the sixth inning. The 30-year-old slugger made the start at first base with Carlos Santana (undisclosed) out, and he'll likely continue to fill in there as long as the latter is sidelined. For the season, Dozier has two homers, one triple, four RBI, four runs scored and a .290/.313/.548 slash line in 32 plate appearances.
