Description: Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella has beaten out Josh Rutledge and will open the 2015 season as the starter.
Insight: Giavotella is a career .238 hitter without much power and no speed, so fantasy owners should ignore him at this time.

Description: Royals second baseman Johnny Giavotella could get a rare start Saturday as he's 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: It's not like Omar Infante (.255, 6 HR, 64 RBI, 47 runs, .634 OPS) has been doing anything special, so don't be surprised if Giavotella, who doubled and scored in Friday's game, is in the lineup. Update: Giavotella is not in the starting lineup.

Description: The Royals are sending second baseman Johnny Giavotella down to Triple-A Omaha.
Insight: Kansas City's second base woes continue. Giavotella struggled to a .206 average in 34 at bats before his demotion. Who the Royals will use at second base going forward is anyone's guess.
