Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Yankees | Chris Nelson acquired

The New York Yankees acquired INF Chris Nelson from the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 1. The Yankees will either send cash or a player to be named to the Rockies. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees moved C Francisco Cervelli (hand) from the 15-day to 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson should see a good chunk of the starts at third base, especially with Kevin Youkilis (back) on the 15-day disabled list and Alex Rodriguez (hip) out until after the All-Star break. There is plenty of opportunity for Nelson to shine, so fantasy owners in AL-only leagues, and even deeper mixed formats, will want to take advantage.
