The New York Yankees are close to re-signing SS Brendan Ryan, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Ryan would serve as insurance for SS Derek Jeter. The deal would be small and won't keep the team from signing another player that can play shortstop.

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan is expected to start at shortstop over SS Eduardo Nunez with SS Derek Jeter (ankle) sidelined. Ryan gives the team a much more steady glove at the position. The move could also suggest that the Yanks don't expect Jeter to return this season. "He's still in a holding pattern," manager Joe Girardi said about Jeter. "He's not going to be out on the field today. I don't know if that means he's available to me in an emergency, but he's not going to do anything today."
Fantasy Tip: Ryan has a very weak bat, so it isn't wise to rely on him, even in AL-only leagues, at the shortstop position.

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Tuesday, May 14, that the reason 2B Dustin Ackley and 1B Justin Smoak were out of the lineup against the New York Yankees was simply due to playing matchups. "It's more of a matchup thing than anything," Wedge said. "I wanted to get (OF Raul Ibanez) in there, and I wanted to get (INF Robert Andino) and (SS Brendan Ryan) in there. They both had decent numbers against CC."

Seattle Mariners SS Brendan Ryan has lost his starting job to INF Robert Andino, but manager Eric Wedge says he'll determine how long it lasts depending on results.
Fantasy Tip: At-bat seekers in AL-only leagues should work accordingly. Andino has more offensive upside, if only a smidge, so if he's available, use a light investment to secure his services. This isn't a "FAAB splurge" moment.
