Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera and 2B Ryan Flaherty are options to play the 6 with SS J.J. Hardy (shoulder) expected to start the season on the disabled list. Hardy was diagnosed with a subscapularis strain, a muscle under the shoulder blade, and he won't do any baseball activities for 10 days. Hardy would be eligible to play April 11, but he won't be ready on that date.
Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be ignored for much of the first month of the season at FantasyScore. Cabrera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is an intriguing stolen base asset for a cheap cost in daily games to open 2015. He should be owned in AL-only leagues if he's not already, and he could be worth a stab as a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues for some stolen bases out of the gates.

Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera, who was signed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with $600,000 in incentives, could compete for a utility infield role with 2Bs Ryan Flaherty and Jayson Nix.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is just a year removed from stealing 37 bases with the San Diego Padres, and the year before that he had 44 thefts. He's obviously best known for his speed, and he could make an impact on deep mixed rosters if he sees enough playing time. He's worth a late-round stab if you're looking to add some steals.

Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera finalized his deal with the team and reported to spring camp.
Fantasy Tip: As previously mentioned in another tip, Cabrera could be a solid late-round option depending on how much playing time he gets. He will be a decent fantasy option at short if J.J. Hardy gets hurt, but otherwise his playing time could be limited.

Free-agent SS Everth Cabrera (Padres) reached an agreement with the Baltimore Orioles on a one-year deal. However, executive vice president Dan Duquette said the deal may not be finalized this week.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly what role Cabrera will fill in Baltimore, but as a fantasy drafter in the late rounds of mixed leagues, it makes sense to take a chance on him because of his speed. With J.J. Hardy entrenched at short, Cabrera could take some playing time away from Jonathan Schoop at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera could slot in at second base or left field if he wins a starting spot in camp. Cabrera has 99 steals the last three years combined, and he'll have some middle infielder value in AL-only leagues.
