Toronto Blue Jays OF Moises Sierra and C Erik Kratz are in good position to make the club as bench options. Sierra has an advantage over OF Anthony Gose because Sierra is out of options and hits right-handed, which would complement DH Adam Lind for platoon duties. Melky Cabrera would be the backup center fielder if Sierra makes the club. Kratz is beating out C Josh Thole because he's been SP R.A. Dickey's primary receiver. Still, the backup backstop competition probably will last until the end of camp.
Fantasy Tip: Sierra is an intriguing AL-only dice roll because of his power-speed mix. Gose's speed could be just as useful for hopeful, cautious bidders.
