Athletics | Yoenis Cespedes placed on DL

The Oakland Athletics have placed OF Yoenis Cespedes (hand) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained muscle in his left hand.

Fantasy Tip: Chris B. Young could receive more regular playing time because of the injury, but Seth Smith should continue to play against right-handed pitchers. Young could be a short-term option for an owner looking for a replacement in the outfield. Michael Taylor was called up and could be an option in AL-only leagues and possibly deep mixed leagues as a utility player if he gets playing time because of the injury to Coco Crisp (groin).
