Yankees | Vernon Wells to start in LF

The New York Yankees plan to have Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Vernon Wells be their starting left fielder to begin the season after a trade is finalized Monday, March 25. The two sides are deciding which minor league players the Angels will receive in the trade before it becomes official. Wells will become the fourth outfielder when OF Curtis Granderson (arm) returns. Wells could split time at designated hitter with DH Travis Hafner, too.

Fantasy Tip: This tempers the excitement for Ben Francisco and Brennan Boesch in AL-only leagues. Wells is the better target now as short-term outfield depth.
