Baltimore Orioles 2B Alexi Casilla has been working on and considering abandoning swinging from the left side of the plate. Casilla will move over to the right side of the plate Friday, May 10, with the team facing a right-handed pitcher. He's a natural righty with the stick, and he's 1-for-9 against righties this year and 6-for-26 against lefties. "In the past years, they say I hit too many fly balls from my left side, fly outs. They see I stay on top of the ball better from my right side, so they came up with the idea, 'What if you hit only from your right side?' I said, 'I can try.'" 2B Ryan Flaherty was seeing the majority of starts at second base against righties, but he's hitting only .122 in 26 games.
Fantasy Tip: Casilla has never lit the world on fire offensively, but maybe this will trigger some improvements in his profile. There could be a period of adjustment, too, so don't expect an overnight rejuvenation. Flaherty will continue to get starts, too, so Casilla is best used as middle infield depth in AL-only universes.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Brian Roberts (hamstring) will undergo surgery on his right hamstring Thursday, May 9, and he's expected to be out for another six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts has had the absolute worst luck with injuries in the past several seasons, and this year has been no different. He still has plenty of time to make a comeback and play in the second half of this season, but don't bank on it. This only gives Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla more rope at the keystone.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Ryan Flaherty said Friday, Feb. 15, that he wasn't offended when the team pursued middle infielders during the offseason. "They're going to try to improve every way possible just like an individual player tries to improve every way possible," Flaherty said. "It's going to happen. It's part of the game."
Fantasy Tip: The club now has the option of moving him up and down between the majors and the minors. If the former Rule 5 player makes the club, he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy formats.
