Seattle Mariners 2B Rickie Weeks and OF Justin Ruggiano will both draw starts against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson Tuesday, April 7, as they utilize their platoons. Weeks will replace 2B Dustin Ackley at second, while Ruggiano will replace OF Seth Smith in right field.
Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Ruggiano ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should both be considered as cheap alternatives at FantasyScore today, especially against Wilson, who is coming a poor 2014 season and an unhealthy spring training.

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano is expected to work in a platoon situation in right field with OF Seth Smith, although manager Lloyd McClendon isn't expected to use the plan during Cactus League spring games.
Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano won't have a whole lot of fantasy appeal outside of AL-only leagues unless injuries open up a more prominent role.
