Line of the Day: 04/03/2011

OF/DH Bobby Abreu of the Los Angeles Angels was 5-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, one run and two walks in a 12-9 loss to the Kansas City Royals in 13 innings. Abreu was on base all seven times in a wild game against the Royals that produced several LotD (Line of the Day) worthy performances.

Line: 5 AB, 1 R, 5 H, 2 RBI; HR, 2 BB

Abreu's ADP of 136.5 (on ESPN) puts him in the company of such "has-beens" as Houston's Carlos Lee (139.5) and "under-performers" such as Baltimore's Adam Jones. Fantasy managers shouldn't forget that Abreu has NINE 20/20 seasons and has a current streak of 12 seasons with 20-plus steals to go along with a career OBP of .400. He's 100% owned in ESPN leagues but only 84% in Yahoo! leagues and could be a valuable fourth or fifth outfielder to own.
