New York Yankees OF Zoilo Almonte is making his first career big league start Friday, June 21, and he could be in line for more starts over slumping OF Vernon Wells, who is batting .107 in June and .221 on the year. Manager Joe Girardi is taking it day-to-day. Almonte hit .297 with a .789 OPS at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: This is something to keep an eye on in AL-only leagues. Almonte must perform in order to continue taking time away from Wells in the outfield.

The New York Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 18, and recalled P Adam Warren and OF Zoilo Almonte from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, RP Chris Bootcheck was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: GM Brian Cashman hinted yesterday that this would happen. The good news is that there's no structural damage in Teixeira's right wrist. However, there's still the possibility that he'll need season-ending surgery. Monitor his progress and hold onto him for now. Lyle Overbay should see the majority of starts at first base again in Tex's absence, making him relevant in AL-only leagues once again.
