Indians | Brandon Moss resting vs. lefty

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:30:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. OF Jerry Sands is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Jason Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has eight hits in 21 at-bats this year, but he last recorded a knock April 22 and hasn't started a game since a week ago, as he's been relegated to a bench role. Consider him a low-end outfield option with pop at FantasyScore.
