FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: DICKERSON/SOUZA PLATOON LEADING OFF FOR RAYS

With the New York Yankees going with southpaw C.C. Sabathia for Tuesday's game, the Tampa Bay Rays will go with outfielder Steven Souza and not counterpart Corey Dickerson at leadoff.  Dickerson was at the top of the order in the opener when the Yanks threw righty Masahiro Tanaka and it appears both guys will continue to platoon there going forward into the season.  As far as fantasy baseball is concerned, it really hurts Souza more than Dickerson, with the latter getting more chances to lead off given the much more plentiful righties around the game.  While Dickerson is a clear outfielder 3, we think Souza is more bench material given his constant average issues.
