Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at the keystone and hitting sixth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting infield option that should be considered a weak play at FantasyScore Tuesday night.

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana, 2B Brian Dozier and 1B Joe Mauer will bat first through third in the order, respectively, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor noted the rest of the lineup will change based on matchups.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to note the Twins scored the sixth most runs in baseball last season, and their lineup might be underrated. Against weak pitchers, stacking a few Twins is a sound strategy, especially with Santana ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Dozier ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) and Mauer ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) carrying mid-range prices.

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier has seven hits in his first 13 at-bats of the spring.

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup Saturday, March 7, because of an illness.
Fantasy Tip: Dozier could sit out a few days but should be fine in the near future. Dozier probably will not help a fantasy team's batting average, but he does have the potential to hit a lot of home runs for a team. He could be an option in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts.
