Description: Indians outfielder Jerry Sands was 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI in the loss to the Tigers on Saturday.
Insight: Sands was clutch versus the Tigers as he recorded a two-run double to give the Indians the lead in the sixth and then tied the game on another two-run double in the eighth. Chances are even Indians fans didn't know who Sands was, but now they do. Still, we need a larger sample size to deem Sands fantasy relevant.

Description: Rays minor league outfielder Jerry Sands, is off to a hot start with Triple-A Durham, batting .371 with five homers, 17 RBI and a 1.192 OPS after 18 games.
Insight: Sands dominated Triple-A in 2012 with 26 HR and 107 RBI, but did little in 2013. If David DeJesus continues to hit .119, he could have company in the outfield.

Description: The Pirates acquired outfielder/first baseman Jerry Sands from the Red Sox Wednesday as part of a six-player swap.
Insight: Sands dominated Triple-A last season with 26 HR and 107 RBI in 119 games. The Pirates aren't particularly strong in right field (Toronto castoff Travis Snider stands to see the most time there) so it's possible Sands could crack the team's big league roster if he has a good spring training.
