For The Last 15 Days
 
Derek Jeter, SS, NYY4/16/2014 11:44:00 PM
Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (quad) will play in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, according to Bryan Hoch of mlb.com.
Insight: Jeter (.286) missed the last two games with a sore quad. He'll miss a third straight Wednesday afternoon but will be back for the nightcap against the Cubs.
Everth Cabrera, SS, SDP4/16/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup due to a sore knee and he has a poor matchup Wednesday.
Insight: If Cabrera plays, he'll face Jorge De La Rosa of the Rockies. He's gone 3-for-18 with seven strikeouts against the left-hander. The 27-year-old is batting .340 with six doubles this season, but he has struck out 17 times in 53 at-bats.
Elvis Andrus, SS, TEX4/16/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has taken 67 at-bats against Seattle's Felix Hernandez and posted a .299 average (20-for-67).
Insight: Andrus is hitting .309 with three doubles, eight runs and four steals this season. Don't avoid him Wednesday just because King Felix is on the mound for the M's.
Jed Lowrie, SS, OAK4/16/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one RBI and two runs Tuesday against the Angels.
Insight: Lowrie is still hitting just .262 but his 6/15 K/BB and 27 percent line-drive rate suggest he's about to heat up.
Everth Cabrera, SS, SDP4/15/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera won't play Tuesday against the Rockies. SOURCE: Dennis Lin, Union-Tribune San Diego
Insight: A sore knee caused him to be a late scratch. Alexi Amarista, who has mostly played outfield this season, will make an emergency start at shortstop.
Jose Reyes, SS, TOR4/15/2014 6:26:00 PM
Description: Toronto shortstop Jose Reyes should be ready to return from the disabled list Friday against Cleveland. SOURCE: Brendan Kennedy, Toronto Star
Insight: Reyes has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. He'll be a solid source of runs and steals as long as he can stay healthy.
Elvis Andrus, SS, TEX4/15/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is just a .133 hitter (2-for-15) against Mariners starter Blake Beavan.
Insight: Andrus had an 11-game hitting streak end on Sunday, but got bat on the hit wagon Monday. Still, this is an unfavorable matchup to be avoided as even if he gets on base the struggling Rangers offense (two runs or less in five of last seven) will have problems knocking him in.
Jean Segura, SS, MILCold4/15/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura is hitless in 12 at-bats versus Cardinals' young right-hander Shelby Miller.
Insight: Segura isn't off to a great start, batting .261 after a big April last season (.367). We're begining to think what we saw in the second half of 2013 (.241, 1 HR, 13 RBI in 54 games after the break) is what we're going to get in 2014. He's also been caught stealing a league-high three times already.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATLHot4/14/2014 10:55:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons had both a triple and a homer for the second straight game Monday against the Phillies.
Insight: Simmons went 3-for-5 and is hitting .341 with zero Ks in 41 at-bats this season.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/14/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy had two doubles and a single in four at-bats Monday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Hardy has averaged 25.7 HR per season over the last three years. He missed six games due to a bad back and is still hunting for his first home run this year.
Jhonny Peralta, SS, STL4/14/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta is a career .440 hitter (11-for-25) against Milwaukee hurler Matt Garza.
Insight: Peralta hasn't found his swing yet this season, batting just .111 through his first 11 games.
Alexei Ramirez, SS, CWSHot4/13/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez hit another homer Sunday against Cleveland.
Insight: Ramirez went 2-for-4 and is now hitting .420 with three home runs, 12 RBI, 11 runs and three steals despite batting mostly out of the seven- and eight-hole. His home run total declined in each of the last three years down to six in 2013 but his steal total increased in the last two up to 30 in 2013. Maybe he can finally put the 20-homer power he flashed as a rookie in 2008 together with baserunning ability he displayed last year.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, PHI4/13/2014 8:29:00 PM
Description: One day after Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-5 with a walk-off homer, he was 0-for-5 Sunday against the Marlins.
Insight: Rollins got his average up to .316 after Saturday's performance but he's back down to .279. He has good numbers -- two homers, 10 RBI, seven runs, two steals -- and is worth owning in 12-team leagues because shortstop is so shallow, but we aren't confident he'll keep this up after a horrible 2013 season.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATL4/13/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-5 with a triple, a homer and three RBI Sunday against Washington.
Insight: Simmons missed two games this week with a jammed wrist but he appears to be fine. The defensive wizard is off to a.306 start.
Derek Jeter, SS, NYY4/13/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he gave Derek Jeter off Saturday and Sunday due to a sore quad, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.
Insight: The Yankees have a day off Monday, so he'll end up getting three full days of rest. The 39-year-old is 10-for-35 with one RBI and three runs this season.
Derek Jeter, SS, NYY4/13/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: New York shortstop Derek Jeter is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Boston. SOURCE: Buster Olney, ESPN
Insight: Well this is strange. Jeter will watch from the sidelines for the second game in a row, though the Yankees haven't provided any injury news regarding the 39-year-old. Dean Anna (.214, 1 HR, 1 RBI) will start in his place.
Jed Lowrie, SS, OAK4/13/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: A's shortstop Jed Lowrie won't start Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: Lowrie hasn't gotten it going yet this season, batting just .242 through 11 games. Nick Punto (.214, 0 HR, 0 RBI) will give it a try Sunday in the series finale.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/12/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy is good to go for Saturday's game against Toronto. SOURCE: Dan Connolly, Baltimore Sun
Insight: He's missed most of the last week because of back spasms. Hardy led all AL shortstops in homers last season (25) but he has yet to leave the yard in 2014 (15 at bats).
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/12/2014 3:17:00 PM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (quad) did not play Friday, but fantasy owners hope he'll be ready for Saturday because of a favorable matchup. Update: He's in the starting lineup
Insight: Tulowitzki (.393, 1 HR, 5 RBI) is a career .328 hitter (19-for-58) with four homers and a 1.046 OPS against Giants starter Matt Cain.
Jhonny Peralta, SS, STL4/12/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Peralta's home run totals have been all over the place in his career. He hit 21-24 in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2011 but 11-15 in 2006, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013. So far this season he's hit two homers, but they are his only hits this season (batting .063). Daniel Descalso will get the start.
Derek Jeter, SS, NYY4/12/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is not in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Jeter has missed only one of the first 11 games so far this season, not bad for the 39-year-old. He's batting .286, though has scored just three runs and knocked in one.
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/12/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (quad) did not play Friday, but fantasy owners hope he'll be ready for Saturday because of a favorable matchup.
Insight: Tulowitzki (.393, 1 HR, 5 RBI) is a career .328 hitter (19-for-58) with four homers and a 1.046 OPS against Giants starter Matt Cain.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, PHI4/11/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has taken five walks over his last four games.
Insight: Rollins went 2-for-3 with a triple, two walks and a steal Friday and is up to .273 with eight RBI and two steals this season. He hasn't struck out since April 6.
Jose Reyes, SS, TOR4/11/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes (hamstring) felt "comfortable" running Friday and will push his hamstring further on Saturday, according to Shi Davidi of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Reyes strained his left hamstring near the end of spring training and aggravated it on Opening Day. If he gets past Saturday without an issue, Reyes will go out on a rehab assignment.
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/11/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (quad) will not play Friday, according to Thomas Harding of mlb.com. He was initially in the starting lineup.
Insight: Tulowitzki (.407, 1 HR, 5 RBI) will miss his second straight game due to right quad tightness in hopes that he can play both games this weekend.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATL4/11/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons (wrist) is not in the lineup Friday, according to Mark Bowman of mlb.com.
Insight: Simmons has hit .321 (9-for-28) and still hasn't struck out this season. He suffered the wrist injury when he landed awkwardly on a tag play at the plate Wednesday night.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/11/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy (back) is not in the lineup Friday, according to Roch Kubatko of masnsports.com.
Insight: Hardy has played just one of the past six games due to back spasms. He expects to play Saturday.
Jace Peterson, SS, SDP4/11/2014 3:02:00 PM
Description: Padres minor league prospect Jace Peterson is off to a hot start, batting .345 with a .958 OPS and a couple of steals in his first seven games at Double-A San Antonio.
Insight: Peterson batted over .300 last season and has averaged 44 steals over the past three minor league seasons. He's very similar in game to Evereth Cabrera which may be a problem since that's who he would be replacing.
Aledmys Diaz, SS, STL4/11/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Cardinals minor league prospect Aledmys Diaz is off to a blazing start at Double-A Springfield. The young shortstop is batting .458 with six extra base hits and a 1.273 OPS.
Insight: The Cuban signed a four-year deal with St. Louis and figures to join or replace Jhonny Peralta before his contract is up. Particularly if he keeps pounding the ball as he's done in his first minor league action.
Alexei Ramirez, SS, CWSHot4/10/2014 11:03:00 PM
Description: White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez has started the season on fire.
Insight: Ramirez is 16-for-38 (.421) with four doubles, two homers, nine RBI, two steals, eight runs and a 2/3 K/BB. He has driven in seven runs over the last five games. The 32-year-old's homer total decreased in each of the last three seasons down to six last year but his steals increased from seven in 2011 to 30 last season.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHCHot4/10/2014 9:24:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has gone 11-for-21 with two homers and six RBI over his last five games.
Insight: Castro batted .297 over his first three MLB seasons but Cubs brass tried to get him to be more patient last year. His first-pitch swinging percentage was .296 over his first three years but just .211 last season and his new approach resulted in a .245 average. He's back to unloading on the first pitch more often this season.
Ian Desmond, SS, WASHot4/10/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond hit his third homer of the season and drove in four runs Thursday against the Marlins.
Insight: Desmond hit .286 with an average of 22 homers, 76 RBI, 74 runs and 21 steals in the previous two seasons and he's well on his way toward reaching those numbers again.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATL4/10/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons jammed his right wrist Wednesday night and is not in Thursday's lineup against the Mets, the team announced.
Insight: Simmons has hit .321 (9-for-28) and still hasn't struck out this season. He suffered the wrist injury when he landed awkwardly on a tag play at the plate Wednesday night.
Jean Segura, SS, MIL4/9/2014 10:55:00 PM
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has gone 7-for-13 over his last three games.
Insight: Segura is batting .320 with a double, a triple, and three steals so far.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/9/2014 5:03:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday night, according to Brittany Ghiroli of mlb.com.
Insight: Hardy has played just one of the past five games due to back spasms.
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/9/2014 1:17:00 PM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki won't start Wednesday's game against Chicago. SOURCE: ESPN Denver
Insight: Tulowitzki (.407, 1 HR, 5 RBI) strained his quad Monday but was able to play yesterday without issue. We'll consider this a maintenance day for the three-time All-Star until we hear otherwise.
Jed Lowrie, SS, OAK4/9/2014 12:20:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie is back in the lineup after leaving Monday's game with a bruised leg. SOURCE: Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: He was taken out as a precaution and was never expected to miss any time. Fantasy owners like Lowrie (.286, 1 HR, 4 RBI) because he's eligible at both second base and shortstop.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC4/9/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro launched two homers Tuesday in a loss to Pittsburgh.
Insight: This is the Castro we all know and love. We're not sure what happened to him in 2013 (.245, 10 HR, 9 SB in 161 games) but Castro has looked like an All-Star through his first seven games (.310, 6 RBI, .552 SLUG).
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/8/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will play through a quad injury Tuesday against Chicago. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: Tulowitzki (.417, 1 HR, 3 RBI) left Monday's game early but it's nothing fantasy owners should be concerned about. He's off to a great start and should be started in all formats.
Jose Reyes, SS, TOR4/8/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes will begin running on a treadmill Tuesday, according to Shi Davidi of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Reyes strained his left hamstring near the end of spring training and aggravated it on Opening Day. He said his hamstring feels good but he'll be careful about progressing too quickly in his rehab.
Jed Lowrie, SS, OAK4/7/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: A's shortstop Jed Lowrie exited Monday's game with a bruised right leg. SOURCE: Jane Lee, MLB.com
Insight: He was hit by a pitch. Don't be surprised if Lowrie (.286, 1 HR, 4 RBI) is back in the lineup for Oakland's next game Wednesday against the Twins.
Eduardo Nunez, SS, MIN4/7/2014 6:32:00 PM
Description: The Yankees have traded infielder Eduardo Nunez to Minnesota for left-hander Miguel Sulbaran.
Insight: He'll start out in Triple-A Rochester and work his way up from there. Nunez owns a .267 lifetime average in 270 MLB appearances, all of which have come with the Yankees.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/7/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy's back problems flared up again on Sunday and he not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the NY Yankees.
Insight: Hardy also missed Friday's game with the issue. Ryan Flaherty will start in his place, but he's 1-for-18 this season and should be avoided.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/7/2014 10:27:00 AM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy's back problems flared up again on Sunday and he is questionable for Monday's game against the NY Yankees.
Insight: Hardy also missed Friday's game with the issue. Ryan Flaherty would start in his place, but he's 1-for-18 this season and should be avoided.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/6/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy's back problems flared up again on Sunday and he was scratched from the lineup, according to Brittany Ghiroli of mlb.com.
Insight: Hardy also missed Friday's game with the issue. Ryan Flaherty will start in his place again.
Jean Segura, SS, MIL4/6/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura will not play Sunday, according to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com.
Insight: Segura went 3-for-6 with a steal in Saturday's 11-inning affair against the Red Sox and is hitting .222 this season. This is already his second day off of the season, likely because he dealt with a shoulder injury during spring training.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC4/6/2014 9:54:00 AM
Description: Chicago shortstop Starlin Castro has strong numbers against Phillies starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Castro has gone 9-for-22 (.409) with a double and two BBs against Burnett. The Cubs shortstop is 4-for-12 over his last three games.
Erick Aybar, SS, ANA4/6/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has batted .476 in his career against Houston starter Scott Feldman.
Insight: Aybar is 10-for-21 with two doubles and two triples off Feldman. He's hitting .222 in 2014.
Alexei Ramirez, SS, CWS4/6/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez has faced Royals starter James Shields 42 times and collected 18 hits, a .429 average.
Insight: Ramirez has two homers off Shields, who will start against Chicago on Sunday. The White Sox shortstop is hitting .444 with three walks in the early stages of the 2014 season.
Jhonny Peralta, SS, STL4/5/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta launched his second homer in three games Saturday at Pittsburgh. His only two hits this season left the yard.
Insight: Peralta's home run totals have been all over the place in his career. He hit 21-24 in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2011 but 11-15 in 2006, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013. His batting average has been similarly unpredictable the last three years (.299 in 2011, .239 in 2012, .303 in 2013).
Jed Lowrie, SS, OAK4/5/2014 8:07:00 PM
Description: Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie had two hits, including a solo homer, Saturday against King Felix and the Mariners.
Insight: Lowrie's homer broke up Hernandez' shutout in the ninth inning. The 29-year-old infielder hit a career-high .290 with 15 homers, 75 RBI, 80 runs and a .790 OPS last season. Lowrie never played more than 97 games in his first five years in the majors but played 154 last year.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC4/5/2014 6:46:00 PM
Description: Chicago shortstop Starlin Castro came up with three singles in four at-bats Saturday against the Phillies.
Insight: Castro went 0-for-9 in his first two games but he's four for his last 12. He's yet to pick up an extra-base hit or score a run.
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/5/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup Saturday, according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post.
Insight: Tulowitzki is getting the night off and will be back in the starting lineup Sunday.
Troy Tulowitzki, SS, COL4/5/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer and a 1.556 OPS versus Arizona right-hander Brandon McCarthy.
Insight: Tulowitzki is off to a solid start, batting .333 and has a favorable matchup.
Andrelton Simmons, SS, ATL4/5/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons is hitless in nine at-bats versus Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg.
Insight: Simmons quietly smashed 17 homers and scored 76 runs last season and is a solid fantasy option ... just not on Saturday.
Alcides Escobar, SS, KANCold4/5/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar is hitless in 10 at-bats versus White Sox left-hander John Danks with four strikeouts.
Insight: Escobar is also hitless on the season (0-for-11). Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL4/4/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is day-to-day with back spasms. SOURCE: Brittany Ghiroli, MLB.com
Insight: Hardy missed Friday's game but expects to play on Saturday. Ryan Flaherty got the start at shortstop in today's 10-4 loss to Detroit.
Alex Gonzalez, SS, DET4/4/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Tigers shortstop Alex Gonzalez was to get Thursday afternoon off (rained out) and will still get a day off on Friday with Andrew Romine starting at shortstop for Detroit.
Insight: Gonzalez went 3-for-8 over the first two games with a pair of RBI. He's no Jose Iglesias and fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere for shortstop help as his last fantasy-worthy season was 2010.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, PHI4/4/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is back in the lineup for Friday's game against Chicago, according to Philadelphia staff writer Matt Gelb.
Insight: Rollins left the club for the birth of his baby. Once a top-five fantasy shortstop, Rollins' numbers have faded to the level of a low-end starter. He can still steal 20-plus bases, but the days of 20 HR and 40 SB are long gone.
Brandon Crawford, SS, SFG4/4/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford is hitless in 10 at-bats against Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Insight: Crawford is batting .308 through the first four games, but has an unfavorable matchup. Over the past two seasons he's produced below a fantasy-worthy level and should not be on rosters.
Hanley Ramirez, SS, LOSCold4/4/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez is just 1-for-12 (.083) against Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.
Insight: Ramirez is off to a cold start with just two hits in 19 at-bats. He's one of the top-two fantasy shortstops and will certainly snap out of it. Probably not on Friday, however, and he should be avoided.
Sean Rodriguez, SS, TAM4/3/2014 8:32:00 PM
Description: Rays utility man Sean Rodriguez has been placed on paternity leave.
Insight: Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy got some heat on talk radio for beginning the season on paternity leave though we doubt Rodriguez will receive as much criticism. The Rays don't really have a spot for Rodriguez right now and neither should fantasy owners.
Alex Gonzalez, SS, DET4/3/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: Tigers shortstop Alex Gonzalez will get Thursday afternoon off and Andrew Romine will start at shortstop for Detroit.
Insight: Gonzalez went 3-for-8 over the first two games with a pair of RBI. He's no Jose Iglesias and fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere for shortstop help as his last fantasy-worthy season was 2010.
Alexei Ramirez, SS, CWS4/2/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI, two walks and two steals Wednesday against the Twins.
Insight: Ramirez' home run total dipped in each of the last three seasons, going from 18 in 2010 to six last year, but he stole a career-high 30 bases in 2013 to keep himself on the fantasy radar.
Jimmy Rollins, SS, PHI4/2/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in Wednesday's line and has headed home to be with his wife for the birth of his child.
Insight: Once a top-five fantasy shortstop, Rollins' numbers have faded to the level of a low-end starter. He can still steal 20-plus bases, but the days of 20 HR and 40 SB are long gone. Jayson Nix will replace him against Texas on Wednesday night.
Jean Segura, SS, MIL4/2/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Segura is just getting a day of rest. He's hitless through the first two games of the season. After a huge first half of the season (.325) he stumbled to the finish line batting .241 over the final 54 games. Hopefully he can find his first-half swing.
Asdrubal Cabrera, SS, CLE4/2/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is hitless in nine at-bats against Oakland starter Scott Kazmir. He's struck out three times.
Insight: This is the first of a day-night doubleheader after Tuesday night's rainout. Cabrera owners are hoping for a return to 2011 production levels (.273, 87 runs, 25 HR, 92 RBI, .792 OPS), but its more likely that what we have seen the past two seasons is what we will see this year as well (.257, 68 runs, 15 HR, 66 RBI, .732 OPS).
Eduardo Nunez, SS, NYY4/1/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: The Yankees designated Eduardo Nunez for assignment on Tuesday.
Insight: Nunez has been one of the worst defensive infielders in baseball in his career and hasn't hit enough to offset that. Yangervis Solarte and Dean Anna will serve as New York's backup infielders until Brendan Ryan returns from the DL.
