Description: Cody Ransom will likely see regular playing time at shortstop with Milwaukee.
Insight: Ransom had a .922 OPS in 17 games for Arizona this season, but the Diamondbacks designated him for assignment anyway. The 36-year-old has 212 career homers in the minors, but just 14 at the major league level, including four this year. However, he's never had an everyday job for an extended period of time, so give him a shot and see if his power sticks.

Description: Ransom will go on the disabled list with a right quad injury suffered in Friday's 11-inning, 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. General manager Brian Cashman said the Yankees will call an infielder up on Saturday. Angel Berroa seems to be the natural choice, according to the report.
Insight: Ransom suffered the injury sliding into second base. Since he was hitting just .180, it's unlikely this makes an impact on any fantasy teams, even in AL-only leagues. However, this could be significant for Alex Rodriguez owners. With no true third baseman on the roster, perhaps the Yankees will try to get A-Rod back sooner than expected. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Ransom could be the Yankees starting third baseman at least until May, when Rodriguez is expected to return from hip surgery.
Ransom, 33, has played 1,193 minor-league games - most of them at the Triple-A level. But a quick look at his minor-league numbers shows why he has played just 166 games in the big leagues in his 10-year career. His career minor-league average is .242 with 162 home runs, 576 RBIs and 643 runs scored. So far this spring training, Ransom hasn't exactly stood out. He is 2-for-13 with two RBIs, according to the New York Post. (SportsBuff.com)
