Indians Roster Moves: Vinny Rottino claimed off waivers, Chris Schwinden DFA’d

Orioles Using Bloomberg's Data Presentation Tool

Kipnis Shakes Things Up At Second Base

Last season was a banner year for second basemen in terms of fantasy baseball. The usual suspects (Cano, Pedroia, Kinsler, Phillips) all had excellent years, while guys like Ben Zobrist, Howie Kendrick, and Ryan Roberts also put up big years. Coming into 2012, second base was a position fantasy owners felt like they could count on for big production in the middle infield. Unfortunately...
