Fill-in options for DL-bound Evan Longoria
Longoria, the fourth overall pick in ESPN average live drafts, does play a more scarce fantasy position than Holliday (16th overall pick) in standard leagues, but there remain quite a few decent third base-eligible options available in more than half of ESPN's 10-team mixed leagues. Among them are Maicer Izturis of the Los Angeles Angels, currently second among third basemen on the ESPN Player Rater (Jose Bautista is first) after hitting .353 this past weekend with a home run and a stolen base. Izturis should help more in steals than power, but he is playing regularly, and hey, it's only three weeks out of 26.
To see Eric's suggested replacement options for the DL-bound Longoria, you must be an ESPN Insider.
