Yankees | Zoilo Almonte in line for more time?

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.
