With interleague now throughout the year, we should probably keep track of those likely to miss ABs each week when AL teams are in NL parks.

Week 1 has LAA opens @CIN, which means Trumbo and/or Bourjos will likely sit at least a game.

KC will also be @PHI this week. How did they handle the Butler/Hosmer 1B last season?

Any discussion/insight, or anything else I missed?

It might also be helpful to keep track of what NL teams are in AL parks.

Thought about this, but are you going to start an NL bat who's going to play 3 games because they have a DH?
If there's a need for it, feel free to add & discuss. Just not sure the value from my perspective.

They were using Hosmer in the OF. So Francour is one the that should lose out on playing time.

It may not be clear right away. But some NL teams will have end up having crowed situations as the year goes on. Like the Cardinals last year for a little bit. In fact this year, I think Matt Adams would become Fantasy relevant  Maybe not for Standard, but some of do play in NL only leagues and that would be nice to know...

Yes I read that too.  As a Hosmer owner in a daily league I'll be sure to check the lineup and make sure he's in it before I start him.  He sucks against lefties so hopefully they sit him on those days if they are looking to give Francoeur some starts.  Butler is too good and they need to have him in the lineup everyday.

I understood exactly what this thread was about when I read the title, in case you were wondering 2Balls.

Don't think that's complete accurate. http://kansascity.ro...book_kc&c_id=kc
