Baltimore Orioles OF Nelson Cruz is not in the lineup Tuesday, Aug. 5. OF Delmon Young is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz has hit just .098 with one homer and an RBI since the All-Star break. It's safe to say he's slumping. Cruz's owners hope that this day off will get him going again.

Updating a previous item, Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold (neck) has not experienced a setback, but he hasn't been able to play the outfield comfortably since having surgery to fuse two vertebrae in his neck in January. He can hit without restrictions but has some problems tilting his head to track fly balls. Manager Buck Showalter said Reimold is "light years ahead" of where he's been in the past. Reimold starting on the DL increases the chances that OFs Steve Pearce and Delmon Young make the active roster.

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks OF Delmon Young can still earn a spot on the roster with OF Nelson Cruz in town. "He can still make the club," Showalter said. "He can still be the DH against left-handed pitching, just like he was before. Nothing's changed there." Young has made a good impression early in spring.
Fantasy Tip: Young's status as a part-time player will only make him mildly attractive in deeper AL-only leagues.
