Consider David Adams
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (5/15/2013) The Yankees might consider using recently-recalled infielder David Adams at third base until Kevin Youkilis returns from the disabled list, and that might be enough for Fantasy owners in AL-only formats to give him a look.
Adams does not have great power or speed, with 26 home runs and 29 at bats in 380 at-bats the minor-league level, but he should be able to hold his own at the plate. Adams seems like a gap hitter, though he did hit eight home runs in just 86 games at Double-A Trenton last season, so there is some potential upside there.
Adams is a career. 290 hitter, who was batting .316 at Triple-A before the call-up. The team has yet to determine a timeline for Youkilis' return to the field, so Adams might be worth a pickup off the waiver wire at least until Youkilis can get off the disabled list.
Yankees recall David Adams

The 26-year-old would have been up earlier, but the Yankees released him and then re-signed him this offseason in order to open up a 40-man roster spot, and as such league rules dictated he couldn't be added to the roster until May 15. Adams replaces Chris Nelson on the Yankees' roster and could be the primary third baseman until Kevin Youkilis returns from the disabled list.
