Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said the team's second base competition is open and will be between 2Bs Johnny Giavotella, Rey Navarro, Gregorio Petit and Cliff Pennington.
Fantasy Tip: Giavotella was the Angels starter for most of the year in 2015, and he should have the edge for the most playing time here, but his defense may betray him. Giavotella makes the most contact and has a little speed to contribute double-digit steals over a full season. None of these options are spectacular, though, so they're mainly filler in AL-only leagues.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Everth Cabrera (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 22, and the Orioles optioned 2B Rey Navarro to Class AAA Norfolk in a corresponding move. Cabrera had a slash line of .208/.240/.250 with a double, RBI and three runs in six games with Norfolk. Before going on the DL, Cabrera was hitless in his last 17 at-bats and was 5-for-37 in 11 games.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) could be in a platoon with Steve Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) at second base until Jonathan Schoop returns from the DL. Cabrera can also fill in at shortstop when J.J. Hardy needs a breather. Cabrera, however, is a low-end second base play until we see him break out of his offensive funk, and limited playing time doesn't help his cause.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, May 15. 2B Rey Navarro is batting eighth and starting at the keystone.
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has just three hits over his last 25 plate appearances and his slash line is down to .176/.262/.270 on the season. In seasonal leagues, he is should be replaced in the majority of formats. Navarro is nothing but a low-priced flier for daily contests.

Baltimore Orioles OF Steve Pearce (illness) left the game Sunday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays due to a stomach illness. SS Rey Navarro replaced him at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) may need a day or two to get over this bug, so you may want to sit Pearce while he struggles with the side effects.
