Atlanta Braves 3B Pedro Ciriaco is hitting second in the lineup Tuesday, May 19, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Alberto Callaspo ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) are splitting time at third base, according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman, with Chris Johnson (hand) out of the lineup and Philip Gosselin on the disabled list. Ciriaco may be worth the money, as he has a .429 average in six games.

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is receiving a rest day Sunday, May 17, against the Miami Marlins. SS Pedro Ciriaco will start at short and bat seventh in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Ciriaco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has two hits - both of the extra base variety - in four plate appearances this season. This is Ciriaco's first start of the season. With Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez fresh off the disabled list, Ciriaco could be considered a deep GPP option against a rusty pitcher.

The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent OF Raul Ibanez (Angels) to an undisclosed major league deal Monday, June 30, and also recalled 2B Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha. In corresponding moves, the team designated INF Pedro Ciriaco and OF Justin Maxwell for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Ibanez figures to be a left-handed option for designated hitter duties and off the bench. Colon will be making his major league debut. He doesn't have much power but makes solid contact; he was hitting close to .300 with Omaha before his call-up. Both players should only be considered in AL-only leagues.

The Kansas City Royals placed 2B Omar Infante (back) on the 15-day disabled list with lower back disc irritation Tuesday, May 13, and recalled INF Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
