Los Angeles Angels minor league pitcher Daniel Reynolds has been suspended 50 games for a second drug violation. The right-hander was penalized Tuesday under baseball's minor league program for a drug of abuse. Taken by the Angels with the 201st pick of the 2009 amateur draft, the 20-year-old was 3-2 with a 4.60 ERA in 20 relief appearances last year for the rookie level Orem Owlz of the Pioneer League. Nine players have been suspended this year under the minor league program.

Who knows which of us is right, but either way they’re definitely two of the most polarizing players in fantasy. Kendrick will give you a good average, some useful stolen base totals and a good...
