3 years agoBoston Red Sox starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz allowed three runs on five hits and two walks in the first two innings of action Friday. He eventually settled down and didn’t allow a hit in his next two innings before coming out of the game. Pomeranz left his previous start with triceps tightness as a precautionary measure and now sits with a 9.00 ERA this spring. He struggled after being traded to the Red Sox last year and with his injury history, the most recent start does not instill much confidence. He should get one more start to show us he’s 100 percent.--Jared T - RotoBallerSource: BoSox Injection

3 years agoDestin Hood had an impressive spring training for the Miami Marlins, but it wasn't enough to make the club before the season starts. The Fish assigned Hood to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday as they round out their Opening Day roster. It was going to be tough for Hood to make the club since Miami was only looking to hold on to four outfielders. It wasn't for a lack of effort, though, as Hood finished the spring batting .283 with one homer and nine RBI in 46 at-bats. The former second-round pick has shown great power in the minors, and he's more than likely to get called up at some point during the 2017 season.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: marlins.com

3 years agoAfter returning to Florida as a World Baseball Classic champion, Christian Yelich is poised to elevate his game to another level. The Marlins' starting left fielder, who finished the World Baseball Classic slashing .310/.375/.448, has the talent to become one of the most proficient outfielders in the big leagues. He's gotten better every year since becoming a full-time starter in 2014, and 2016 saw his power reach a new level. Yelich hit .298 and clubbed 21 homers and 98 RBI last season. To put that into perspective, he recorded a combined 98 RBI from 2014-15 and hit a combined 20 dingers from 2013-15. Yelich is the real deal, and it's scary to think how great he can be if he continues that climb in 2017.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: espn.com

3 years agoJhoulys Chacin looks to have the upper hand as the Padres' starter on Opening Day after tossing four scoreless innings with six strikeouts in his first start since the World Baseball Classic. Chacin started last season with the Braves and was traded to the Angels. He wound up with a combined 4.81 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. San Diego looks to be the perfect landing spot for him, since their rotation doesn't have any pitchers that would be locks to start on any other major leeague team. With Jered Weaver experiencing a dead arm and Christian Friedrich suffering a lat strain, Chacin now has the inside track to take the mound on April 3 against the Dodgers. He may be worth a flyer in NL-only leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: A.J. Cassavell

3 years agoJust when the Pirates thought they would get all three of their star outfielders in the lineup together, Gregory Polanco was scratched from Saturday's game against the Tigers. The club described the reason as left shoulder discomfort. It doesn't appear to be serious enough to put his Opening Day availability in question, but it could be worth monitoring if he experiences a flare-up.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Rob Biertempfel
Share:
3 years agoTampa Bay will most likely start the season without Colby Rasmus in the lineup. Rasmus has not fully recovered from offseason surgery (hip/core muscle) and isn't comfortable playing the outfield yet. Rasmus was signed by Tampa Bay in late January to a one-year contract and was projected to be their opening day left fielder. We know what we're getting from Rasmus at this point in his career and it's not very enticing. Expect another year of around 20 home runs, 60 runs batted in and runs scored with a low average. There are better options out there with more upside on draft day.--Tim Hiebert - RotoBallerSource: Marc Topkin
Share:
3 years agoDetroit Tigers third baseman Nicholas Castellanos was in the midst of a breakout campaign in 2016 before injury sidelined him for most of August and September. This spring, he's been absolutely raking, boasting a triple-slash line of .340/.392/.681 with three home runs. His 15 strikeouts in Grapefruit League play show that he still has some work to do in that regard, but if he stays healthy, he is poised for a productive year and offers power production in the range of 20 or more home runs -- good enough for a roster spot in most mixed leagues.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB
Share:
3 years agoFireballer Jose Urena is making his case to become Miami's fifth starter once the season starts next week. Urena possesses immense talent, though the Marlins are hoping he can develop some consistency in 2017. Urena pitched four shutout innings with five strikeouts on Friday and is now competing with Adam Conley for the club's final rotation spot. Urena was used as a spot starter as well as a reliever in 2016 where he finished with a 6.13 ERA. He offers better fantasy value as a reliever, however, and will most likely begin the season working out of the bullpen.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: marlins.com
Share:
3 years agoHunter Renfroe enters 2017 with rookie status, but he is practically a lock to be the regular right fielder in San Diego. Renfroe leads the team in at-bats so far this spring and is slashing .283/.306/.484 with two home runs. He hit to the tune of .371 in his brief time with the club last September, but only walked 2.8 percent of the time, which could lead to lower value in on-base percentage leagues. He possesses one of the highest ceilings among National League rookies this season, considering he has a great chance to log 600-plus at-bats.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: John Schlegel
Share:
3 years agoDespite being a starter for all of last season, Adam Conley finds himself fighting for the Marlins' final spot in the rotation as spring training nears its end. Conley, who went 8-6 with a 3.85 ERA last year, has endured a tough spring. The lefty is 0-3 with a 6.94 ERA in less than 12 innings of work and is neck and neck with Jose Urena to round out Miami's rotation. One would think Conley would have the edge, however. After all, he has much more starting experience and has shown great promise when he's on. Urena is still too raw and inconsistent, and it makes more sense for him to start the year in the bullpen.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: marlins.com
Share:
3 years agoEdinson Volquez has been named Miami's Opening Day starter, according to the team's official website. The news isn't entirely surprising, mostly because Volquez is the most experienced and arguably the most talented starter in the Marlins' rotation. The 12-year vet and former World Series champ had a down year in 2016, finishing 10-11 with a nasty 5.37 ERA for the Kansas City Royals. Despite being on the backside of his career, Volquez still offers plenty of fantasy value. Over the last three years, he's averaged 12 wins and 145 strikeouts per season.--Steven Slivka - RotoBallerSource: marlins.com
Share:
3 years agoWil Myers racked up two more hits, including a triple and a run scored on Friday. He has been raking this spring, batting .370 with a pair of homers and three steals. Myers broke out in 2016, finishing two home runs and two stolen bases shy of a 30-30 season. He slipped in the second half, hitting .223 with half the power numbers, causing many to approach him cautiously this season. If the Padres' young lineup can give him more support than the rag-tag group they threw out repeatedly last season, Myers could be well worth his fifth-round ADP.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: San Diego Union-Tribune
Share:
3 years agoAs if you needed an excuse to avoid Jered Weaver in fantasy drafts, he is now dealing with a "dead arm" issue since Wednesday. According to Weaver himself, "It’s kind of one of those things where you feel good, but your arm just doesn’t quite want to work the way you want it to. It was a bit erratic, and I couldn’t really find the zone." Baseball fans have gotten used to seeing Weaver miss the zone, as he hasn't posted a K/BB over 3.00 since 2013. He is up to a 10.13 ERA this spring. Weaver is the de facto No. 1 starter in San Diego, but he shouldn't be drafted in anything but deep NL-only leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Dennis Lin
Share:
3 years agoGerrit Cole threw seven innings, totaling 98 pitches, in a minor league start at Pirate City on Friday. The Pirates are bringing their No. 1 starter along slowly this spring in order to keep him healthy for the regular season. Cole was limited to 116 innings last season due to a slew of injuries. He saw his ERA jump more than a full run, up to 3.88. His previously impeccable control also worsened from 1.90 to 2.79 BB/9. If Cole remains healthy, he could be a steal in the ninth or 10th round of fantasy drafts.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Adam Berry
Share:
3 years agoJosh Bell is set to start at first base on Opening Day for the Pirates after undergoing a minor knee procedure in February. Bell has been one of the few regular starters playing for the Bucs in spring training recently, as half of their position players were gone for the World Baseball Classic. Bell has been slow to come around with the bat, hitting .158 with no homers and three RBI this spring. He has long been a prized prospect due to his bat and got off to a good start last season in his MLB debut, hitting .273 and driving in 19 runs in 128 at-bats. He is worth a late-round pick, especially in keeper leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: David Wilson
Share:
3 years agoStarling Marte tweaked his ankle two weeks ago and was forced to sit out half of the games for the Dominican Republic during the World Baseball Classic. It didn't slow him down, however, as he went 3-for-12 with a homer during the tournament. In his first game back for the Bucs, he hit a grand slam. At age 28, Marte is in the prime of his career and could improve significantly on the nine home runs he totaled last season. He hit 19 HRs the previous season, which stands as his career high. Marte is the 21st overall player on RotoBaller's preseason rankings.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Rob Biertempfel
Share:
3 years agoAccording to a report from Korean news outlet Naver Sports, Jung Ho Kang's request for a work visa was denied. This throws serious doubt on his ability to play for Pittsburgh this season. He is currently appealing the earlier ruling of a two-year suspended sentence for his third DUI offense, which could hasten the process for receiving a visa. For the time being, he is stuck overseas and will not be with the Pirates on Opening Day. Kang hit .255/.354/.513 with 21 home runs and 62 RBI last season as the starting third baseman, despite missing 59 games due to injury. Kang is not worth holding onto in most leagues.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Rob Biertempfel
Share:
3 years agoGregory Polanco has been scorching hot all spring, including an 11-for-19 (.619) stint for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic. His spring training numbers aren't too shabby so far either; he is hitting .294 with two RBI and three stolen bases in 17 at-bats. Polanco will be in a new spot at left field this season, but it shouldn't have any effect on his game. He should enter the year in the fifth spot of the Pittsburgh lineup, giving him ample RBI opportunities.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: Stephen Nesbitt
Share:
3 years agoTigers starting pitcher Matt Boyd is the favorite to win the fifth sloth in the rotation after yet another excellent spring outing. Boyd struck out five batters over five innings, scattering just three hits as the Tigers defeated the Braves Friday. Boyd was 6-5 for the Tigers last year with a 4.53 ERA in 97 1/3 innings of work but owns a miniscule 2.49 ERA this spring with 21 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings pitched. If he nails down this spot, he's worth keeping on the radar as a sleeper pick in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB
Share:
3 years agoMilwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters Friday that Eric Thames, presumed the Brewers' starting first baseman, will play in right field again tomorrow. Having already played there this spring, the continued playing time at corner outfield gives fans the indication multi-position eligibility is on the table for the former KBO star. First base and right field eligibility could be a boon to Thames' fantasy value this season, as he is already being seen as a possible sleeper. Hitting 40-plus home runs and stealing a handful of bases is not out of the question for Thames, and multiple positions would only boost his value.--Mitchell Bannon - RotoBallerSource: Adam McCalvy
Share:
3 years agoTigers slugger J.D. Martinez will begin the season on the disabled list and will remain there for what is expected to be three or four weeks. Martinez sprained a ligament in his right foot last week, and originally the injury wasn't thought to be too serious. However, after a special CT scan, it was revealed that the recovery would take longer. This is a major blow for the Tigers and for fantasy owners who drafted Martinez in the early rounds, but at least the timetable for return isn't too extreme. Martinez's absence opens a possible door for the hard-hitting Steven Moya, who has slugged five home runs this spring.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: Jason Beck
Share:
3 years agoWith John Henson out, Thon Maker will get the start, with Mirza Teletovic and Spencer Hawes getting extra minutes off the bench. Both Teletovic and Hawes are 'three-dependent' players that need to score to be fantasy relevant. They are risky DFS plays against the Paul Millsap-less Hawks, but Maker has a chance to use his versatility against Dwight Howard. It will be a test for the rookie, and unfortunately his upside is limited. That being said, minutes are minutes. If Maker can score from the outside, he's going to be a great DFS play.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: C.F. Gardner
Share:
3 years agoCaris LeVert will continue to start in place of Sean Kilpatrick, who has now missed the last five games. LeVert is an athletic forward that can carry the ball up the court, increasing his upside. He contributes across the board, but needs to find a consistent jumper to be a serious threat on a nightly basis. As far as tonight goes, LeVert has a height matchup over the Wizards guard, but might struggle to contain Otto Porter if they are matched up. LeVert will be given the reigns of the offense frequently, and expect him to be a main contributor tonight.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Brooklyn Nets Twitter
Share:
3 years agoAlthough nothing is official, John Wall is going through warmups and it looks like he will play against the Nets. If Wall ends up seeing fewer minutes, Brandon Jennings is in for a big night, while Bradley Beal will see a major increase in usage. As for the rest of the Wizards, without Wall, they can still be productive on their own. Seeing how it is more likely Wall plays, the Wizards' bench has increased upside and the Wizards should handily beat the Nets. Even though the Nets have been competitive in most of their games, the Wizards are still a better team overall and the bench should be able to wear Brooklyn down.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Chase Hughes
Share:
3 years agoAngels manager Mike Scioscia announced that veteran Albert Pujols will not play first base this spring. Pujols is anticipated to be a full-time designated this season anyway, although the Luis Valbuena injury makes it a possibility that Pujols will be pushed into some first base duty. This is good news for fantasy owners who are worried about Pujols' health. The less time he plays in the field, the less risk of him aggravating his nagging foot injury. Pujols, now 37, was a top-100 fantasy player last year after his 31-homer, 119-RBI season. Despite the nagging injuries, Pujols has played in over 150 games three years in a row now. If he can stay healthy again in 2017, Pujols will be a great source of power, even as his rate stats have decreased with age.--Andy Patton - RotoBallerSource: Jeff Fletcher
Share:
3 years agoIsaiah Whitehead has played 28 minutes in the last two games -- one was a nail-biter against the Pistons, the next a blowout over the Suns. Whitehead has been overlooked due to his inconsistency, but he has been able to score against every opponent he has faced. Lately, scoring has come more naturally, and he has looked more confident with the ball in his hands. Now that Jeremy Lin is back, Whitehead was supposed to fall off the radar, but he continues to get minutes. This will pay off in the long run for a young guard, and tonight he is going to be an interesting sleeper option in DFS tournaments if he gets the minutes.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Brooklyn Nets Twitter
Share:
3 years agoWith Avery Bradley dealing with an illness, Jaylen Brown will get the start alongside Isaiah Thomas. The combination of Thomas and Brown will leave Thomas assuming most of the offensive workload, while Brown carries the backcourt defense, primarily guarding Devin Booker. Brown has been overshadowed as a rookie due to his lack of eye-popping statistics, but development wise, Brown is one of the best rookies in the league. As soon as that jump shot starts to fall, people will officially start to take notice. As for DFS, Brown is a very risky play, but Jae Crowder, Al Horford and Gerald Green all have increased upside.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Scott Souza
Share:
3 years agoGlenn Robinson III has been a solid player in his first year, but a calf injury will keep him sidelined against the Nuggets. C.J. Miles and Monta Ellis are going to be in for higher workloads and will be given frequent oppurtunities to score as two of the team's better offensive players. The Nuggets are going to try and outshoot their opponents every game, and the Pacers can keep up with any team on both sides of the ball. This will lead to a high-scoring game, which means either team is fine to stack. Robinson has been seeing less minutes as of late, meaning there will be little fantasy relevance outside of DFS tournaments. Ellis, Miles and even Rodney Stuckey will see an increase in usage.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Nate Taylor
Share:
3 years agoFree-agent catcher Derek Norris has agreed to a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays were in need of an experienced catcher with Wilson Ramos (knee surgery) out until midseason. Norris should see plenty of playing time until Ramos returns and could be an option in fantasy. Norris had a terrible season with San Diego last season but was an All-Star two years ago with Oakland when he hit .270. Norris has 28 home runs over the last two years but has only managed a .222 batting average.--Tim Hiebert - RotoBallerSource: Marc Topkin
Share:
3 years agoCleveland Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall slammed into the right field wall while trying to make a catch during Friday's Cactus League game. He was forced to exit the game and grabbed his right shoulder several times on the way out. The extent of the injury is unknown for now, but updates are sure to come in shortly.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: Jordan Bastian on Twitter
