The Minnesota Twins acquired SS Eduardo Nunez from the New York Yankees Monday, April 7, in exchange for P Miguel Sulbaran. Nunez will be assigned to Triple-A Rochester.
Fantasy Tip: Nunez will serve as utility infield insurance for the Twinkies. He'll be an option for AL-only leaguers if a roster spot opens up due to injuries.

It appears as though New York Yankees 3B Kelly Johnson will open the season as the team's starting third baseman. "We kinda thought about that a little bit going into the season when we signed Kelly, but his at-bats have been good against right-handers, left-handers," manager Joe Girardi said when asked if he still planned to split the position between Johnson and SS Eduardo Nunez. "There's some different things we can do with it, obviously."
Fantasy Tip: Johnson is an attractive option as your middle or corner infielder now that he'll open the season with plenty of playing time. Johnson's average won't help much, nor will his lack of stolen bases, but you probably can't beat the pop he'll deliver that late in drafts.

The New York Yankees are highly unlikely to bid on free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), according to major league officials in contact with Yankees officials. The team may need a contingency plan to SS Derek Jeter as he comes back from a serious injury and to replace 2B Robinson Cano and 3B Alex Rodriguez. General manager Brian Cashman seems content on starting the year with INFs Brian Roberts, Kelly Johnson, Eduardo Nunez and Brendan Ryan providing infield depth. The Yankees are not expected to stretch their budget much further after going past their self-imposed $189 million payroll limit.

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the team won't use INFs Brendan Ryan or Eduardo Nunez at third base this year if they're without 3B Alex Rodriguez.

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.

New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) is out indefinitely after reinjuring his surgically repaired left ankle. "His ankle is a little sore, so we are probably going to give him a couple of days and make an evaluation," manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi isn't sure that Jeter will play again this year with only three weeks left in the season. SS Eduardo Nunez will play shortstop in Jeter's absence.
Fantasy Tip: Don't rely on Jeter for the rest of the season. Nunez is a nice commodity in deep mixed leagues for the remainder of the year if Jeter does not return.
