The Royals will start the season without one of their starting outfielders.

The Kansas City Royals announced Wednesday that outfielder Hunter Dozier has tested positive for COVID-19.

Fantasy Impact

First and foremost, I hope Dozier has a quick and safe recovery from coronavirus. Fantasy-wise, Dozier was OF51 in our rankings this year so his presence will certainly be missed. This opens the door for Bubba Starling to get much more playing time in the outfield this season.
