A-Rod’s replacements are green in NYC

Alex Rodriguez has a slight tear of the meniscus in his right

knee and has opted to have surgery.  He will be on the

disabled list for the next four to six weeks.  Fantasy owners

can take a look at Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena as A-Rod’s

immediate replacements at third.

Nunez had been dealing with a hamstring injury recently, but if

cleared to play is hitting .277 with 14 runs, 14 RBI, 10 stolen

bases and three home runs on the season.

Pena has only played in 13 games and is hitting .091. The

Yankees top third baseman at Triple-A Scranton is Brandon Laird.

He’s batting .267 with nine homers and 42 RBI in 83 games.

On the waiver wire, Florida’s Emilio Bonifacio and Minnesota’s

Danny Valencia look like your best available options right now.

Both are swinging a hot bat and are only owned in nine and 19

percent of all
