Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Nunez will serve as the designated hitter for the Twins Monday, May 25.
Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not seen much playing time lately and has only one hit in five at-bats this month. Owners probably should avoid using Nunez in their starting lineups.

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas was optioned to Class AAA Rochester on Sunday, May 17. OF Eduardo Nunez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: On one level this comes as a surprise, considering Vargas ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 15-for-41 in May with a .366 average and two home runs. The team wants Vargas to cut down on his strikeouts. Vargas had been DH, so look for manager Paul Molitor to rotate different players in and out. Keep Vargas stashed away on your bench in deeper leagues if you can afford it.

The Minnesota Twins placed SS Eduardo Nunez (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 5, due to a strained left oblique. The move is retroactive to April 30. The team purchased the contract of INF Doug Bernier from Triple-A Rochester.
Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) is only worth using as a salary saver in FantasyScore when he is healthy.

Minnesota Twins DH Kennys Vargas is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. SS Eduardo Nunez is serving as the designated hitter and hitting fifth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.
Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has eight hits in his first 19 at-bats (.421) to start 2015, but he's not as good of a hitter as that small sample size may suggest. Hitting in the middle of the lineup is attractive, but he remains a low-end shortstop option for FantasyScore gamers.
