Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is batting second in the order Saturday, May 2, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The switch-hitting Paredes will serve as the Orioles' designated hitter against Rays SP Chris Archer.
Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is a career .275-hitter against righties, with seven home runs in 391 plate appearances. For as long as Paredes continues to benefit from a BABIP above .400 he'll be an excellent FantasyScore option, especially when batting between Many Machado and Adam Jones.

Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is batting third as the designated hitter against the Boston Red Sox Friday, April 24.
Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a solid minor league track record, but it isn't anything spectacular, so don't read to much into his 7-for-20 start to the season. Still, he is hitting between the best two hitters on the team, so there is certainly fantasy potential. View Paredes as a nice source of cap relief with upside in FantasyScore contests Friday.

Fantasy Tip: In mixed leagues, there's no reason to hold Moose on your roster as we wait for him to figure something out in the minors. Depending on the size and depth of your AL-only league, it's probably wise to hold onto him if you can. The Royals still view him as a crucial piece to their franchise and will likely give him another shot.
