Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mark Trumbo won't play third base this year or next year. He'll continue to mix in at first base, outfield and designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Chris Nelson will get the opportunity to start on a regular basis at third base for the time being. Add him only in AL-only leagues.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim recalled 3B Chris Nelson from the minors Wednesday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Nelson is expected to be the team's new starting third baseman after they shipped Alberto Callaspo to the Oakland Athletics last night. Grant Green could eventually become another option at the hot corner, but for now, it's Nelson's job to lose. He's only worth adding in AL-only leagues.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have activated Peter Bourjos (hamstring) from the disabled list and have designated INF Chris Nelson for assignment.

New York Yankees INF David Adams was called up from the minors Wednesday, May 15, and 3B Chris Nelson was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Adams will serve as infield depth with Eduardo Nunez (ribs) still out. Once Nunez returns, expect Jayson Nix to shift back to third base. Adams will probably receive occasional starts, but likely shouldn't warrant attention outside of AL-only leagues.
