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.

Fantasy Tip: Darin Ruf will get playing time at first base until Ryan Howard (knee) returns, but he'll find a spot in the outfield after that. John Mayberry Jr. and Casper Wells will both have short-term value in outfield spots as part-time players the rest of the way, too.
