Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella has won the starting job at second base. He beat out INFs Grant Green and Josh Rutledge, both of whom will begin the 2015 season with Triple-A Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) only has value in deep universal leagues and AL-only formats at the moment. However, his low FantasyScore price tag could be tempting for owners who want to spend big bucks at other positions on days when he has a favorable matchup.
