3/18:Slugging first baseman Ryan Howard turned the clock back to 2006 in the Phillies 15-12 win over Pittsburgh on Friday. Batting cleanup, Howard raised his spring average to .276 by going three-for-four with a grand slam and five total RBI. Howard's average plummeted in 2015 to .229, over 30 points below his career mark, but he still posted 23 HR and 77 RBI while sitting against lefties. Howard's manager said during the offseason that Howard would have to earn his spot in the lineup, and after a slow start to spring training, he has picked up the pace.read more...
3/18:Phillies catching prospect Jorge Alfaro, acquired from the Rangers in the Cole Hamels trade last July, has been optioned to Double-A Reading. Alfaro posted mixed results in big league camp; while he stroked five hits, notching an average of .294, he did not display his prodigious power, as all five hits were singles. Alfaro will have to prove that he's fully recovered from a serious ankle injury that ended his 2015 season prematurely. Alfaro was unlikely to make any impact at the major league level this season, but for those in a keeper or dynasty league, keepread more...

3/18:If nothing else, Tommy Milone is consistent. Over his five years in the big leagues, his ERA has been: 3.81, 3.74, 4.14, 4.19 and 3.92. Milone is currently fighting for a rotation spot with the Twins, and while he possesses little upside, his floor is higher than that of the other candidates. Milone has made three starts this preseason, allowing two earned runs and six hits to go along with eight strikeouts over nine innings. In his most recent start, he went four scoreless frames, striking out two, surrendering just one baserunner-- Matt Holliday doubled in theread more...
3/18:Anthony Ranaudo was scheduled to make his fourth appearance this spring prior to being sidelined as a result of the ailment. Ranaudo, who pitched to an unsightly 7.63 ERA in 15.1 innings with the big club last year, is part of an eight-man audition for the final rotation spot until Yu Darvish returns in May. Ranaudo has allowed seven earned runs in 5.1 innings during Cactus League play.--Christopher Olson - RotoBallerSource: The Fort Worth Star-Telegram
3/18:Starlin Castro is undoubtedly having the best spring of any Yankees position player, and couldn’t have asked for a better way to start his preseason stint in pinstripes. Castro is batting .417 over nine Grapefruit League games. Most recently, Castro went deep in back-to-back games, both of which were to center field and right-center respectively. This is a good sign for Castro as he has often struggled in the past when trying to pull the ball too frequently. Castro is currently ranked 14th among fantasy shortstops on RotoBaller and could prove to be a steal late in drafts,read more...
3/18:It may just be Spring Training, but Adam Jones is on fire, hitting three home runs in his last five games. Jones has been working counts as well, which is strange enough because he's known as a free swinger. In his at-bat against Twins relief pitcher Ryan Pressly, Jones hit a neck-high fastball out of the park after receiving next-to-nothing to hit in his previous at bats. Jones is coming off a season in which his batting average dropped nearly 10 points from the previous year. Despite this, the All-Star still put up impressive stats as aread more...
3/18:Adam Jones posted impressive numbers in the Orioles' Thursday win over the Minnesota Twins. The veteran outfielder had three hits in three at-bats, including a home run and a double. The homer was Jones' third of the spring. The Golden Glove winner has proven a consistent fantasy pickup over the years. In 2015, a variety of ailments contributed to a dip in the slugger's overall production, but he was still able to hit 27 home runs while batting .269. Look for a healthier Jones to improve on both those numbers this year.--Kevin Johnson - RotoBaller
3/18:Hector Santiago turned in a solid outing against the Colorado Rockies, pitching into the fifth inning while allowing only one run (a solo home run by Tom Murphey). This successful start certainly bolsters Santiago's chances of winning the No. 5 spot in the Angels' starting rotation. He hopes to improve from last year, as he suffered a second-half collapse after being selected to the All-Star Game. Santiago gave up 29 home runs (tied for most in the AL) while posting a 3.59 ERA in 2015 -- numbers he should certainly improve on this year if he can remain consistent throughout theread more...
3/18:With the news that Brad Boxberger will miss a good chunk of time to start the season, the Rays' closer job is up for grabs. Of the candidates, Danny Farquhar is the only one with any closing experience. The right-hander recorded 18 saves over the last three years for the Mariners-- 16 of them coming in 2013. Farquhar's 5.12 ERA in 2015 could be an issue, but that number sat at 2.66 over 71 innings in 2014. He owned a superb 27.9% strikeout rate and an average 7.6% walk rate that season, as well. While Farquhar hasread more...
3/18:Mike Wright became the first Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher to have a solid spring training outing yesterday in a game against the Minnesota Twins. The second-year pitcher only gave up four hits while striking out two and allowing zero runs in five innings of work. This could help boost Wright's chances for landing a starting spot in the O's pitching rotation after a rough rookie year that saw him post a 6.04 ERA. If spring training continues the way it has for the Baltimore pitching squad, Wright could very easily find himself in the starting rotation. Look for Wrightread more...

3/18:Pedro Alvarez recently made his spring training debut with the Baltimore Orioles after signing a one-year contract with the team on March 10. In his debut against the Toronto Blue Jays, Alvarez connected on an RBI double, a promising indicator for the upcoming season. The veteran slugger certainly has the potential to improve on his already-decent .243 BA and 27 home runs from last year (when he was with the Pittsburgh Pirates) now that his home field will be the hitter-friendly Camden Yards. Alvarez could provide some solid power at a very low cost in drafts.--Kevinread more...

3/18:Rays third baseman Evan Longoria left Thursday's game after hitting a foul ball off his own shin. The injury was ruled a left shin contusion, and although he will sit out on Friday, he is expected back within a few days. Longoria has just five hits in 23 at-bats this spring, with eight strikeouts and a meager .541 OPS. The three-time All-Star hasn't reached 25 home runs since 2013, and, at 30 years old, is looking to return to top form in 2016.--Harris Yudin - RotoBaller
