5/29 -  Hideki Matsui is batting 6th for the Tampa Bay Rays.

A.J. Pierzynski is just 72% owned in Yahoo leagues so Lucroy owners should look ot him first.  If he is already gone, George Kottaras (2%) is a solid add to replace Lucroy.  Although he has just 46 ABs, no catcher has earned more Fantasy Points/AB.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed P Ted Lilly on the 15-Day DL.

5/28 - The San Diego Padres have activated OF Carlos Quentin and he was will be batting in the cleanup spot.
