Angels | Erick Aybar tied to No. 2 spot

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar is expected to start the year hitting second in the lineup behind OF Mike Trout and in front of 1B Albert Pujols. Aybar has hit second in back-to-back days, and manager Mike Scioscia said Aybar will get the "first crack" at the spot. 2B Howard Kendrick and 3B Alberto Callaspo are other options. Kendrick is expected to hit sixth and Callaspo seventh.

Fantasy Tip: A very mediocre plate approach limits his on-base productivity and stolen base opportunities, but hitting second in this lineup should only help. He remains a nice middle infield target in mixed leagues.
