You may have lost Hanley Ramirez, Brett Lawrie, or Derek Jeter for the start of the season.  And, if you’re anything like me, you neglected to draft a back-up for that position. If you’re in that unenviable spot, check your waiver wire for guys like Alcides Escobar, Jean Segura, and Kevin Youkilis. If they don’t tickle your fancy, there’s a healthy player on the New York...
