Matt LaPorta, called up to the big leagues Saturday, starts in right field today against the Detroit Tigers.
Luis Valbuena is also making his debut at second base with Asdrubal Cabrera giving the struggling Jhonny Peralta the day off. Assuming LaPorta does what he does best -- hit -- he could be a nice value in fantasy leagues once he gets eligibility at 1B, LF and RF, as Wedge plans to play him at those positions.
