  • LAD Second Baseman #9
    It’s been almost exactly one year since Lux tore the ACL in his right knee last spring training, but he’s had zero restrictions in camp so far. The 26-year-old former top prospect is poised to take over as the Dodgers’ starting shortstop this season and represents and interesting late-round gamble for fantasy managers. He’ll bat in the lower-third of Los Angeles’ loaded lineup, but is still a decent bet for double-digit homers and steals with a respectable batting average.
  • Was Relief Pitcher #47
    FanSided’s Robert Murray adds that the deal is worth $1.5 million and includes an additional $500,000 in performance bonuses, if he makes the Nationals’ roster. Law will have an opportunity this spring to win a spot in Washington’s season-opening bullpen after being non-tendered last November by the Reds. The 33-year-old journeyman reliever compiled a solid 3.60 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45/26 K/BB ratio across 55 innings (54 appearances, three starts) for Cincinnati.
  • Mil Catcher #99
    Finally, the deal is official. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal adds that the deal includes incentives that will enable Sánchez to earn the original $7 million, if he stays healthy. The 31-year-old backstop was forced to settle for a revised figure due to lingering concerns over the condition of his surgically-repaired right wrist. He’s expected to serve as the primary caddy to William Contreras this season and could also get some at-bats at designated hitter.
  • SD Starting Pitcher #44
    Musgrove is fully healthy at the outset of spring training after being limited to just 17 starts this past season due to toe and shoulder injuries. The 31-year-old righty represents a logical bounce-back candidate for fantasy managers, if he can stay healthy. He’s currently being selected 110th overall, on average, in NFBC drafts this spring as a fringe top-30 starting pitcher.
  • Mil Starting Pitcher #53
    The deal, which was agreed to earlier this week, is now official. Woodruff, who was immediately placed on the 60-day injured list once his deal was announced, will spend the upcoming season rehabbing with the Brewers with the goal of being ready for the outset of the 2025 campaign. The dynamic 31-year-old righty was non-tendered by the Brewers last November after undergoing right shoulder anterior capsule surgery last October. It’s unclear whether his stuff will bounce back to its previously-elite levels as shoulder surgery is far worse for pitchers in terms of long-term recovery and performance than other surgical procedures, but he still represents a worthwhile gamble for Milwaukee.
  • Mil Second Baseman #15
    Jones has been jettisoned from Milwaukee’s 40-man roster to make room for the club to re-sign injured starter Brandon Woodruff. The versatile 26-year-old got into seven contests last year for Milwaukee and should garner some interest on waivers.
  • FA Center Fielder #2
    Daza underwent left shoulder surgery last June and was a long shot to find an opportunity this spring with a major league club. The 29-year-old contact-oriented outfielder will aim to rebuild his long-term value south of the border in 2023.
  • StL Shortstop #19
    Edman has yet to be cleared for hitting or throwing as he continues his recovery from offseason surgery on his right wrist, but is still hoping to be cleared during spring training in time for the Cardinals’ season opener on March 28. The versatile 28-year-old’s absence opens the door for top prospect Victor Scott II or former top prospect Dylan Carlson, who is coming back from ankle surgery, to get an extended look in center field during his absence. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on his timetable as the spring progresses.
  • FA Third Baseman #10
    Cotillo notes that the Red Sox are not making an aggressive push for Urshela, but are doing their due diligence to bolster their roster in any way possible. Urshela, 32, has played a majority of his career at third base, so the thought is that the team views him as a right-handed option at first base who can back up Rafael Devers and be an upgrade over Bobby Dalbec. Urshela slashed .299/.329/.374 in 228 plate appearances with the Angels but had his season cut short when he suffered a pelvic fracture in June. There are other teams out there, such as the Yankees, Mets, Marlins and Angels that have also expressed interest in the veteran infielder.
  • NYM Starting Pitcher #34
    Mendoza added that the team should have more information in the coming days, but fantasy managers should keep this on their radar. The 31-year-old punched out 202 batters last season over 166 1/3 innings and is a staple to the Mets’ rotation so we should expect the organization to be cautious with Senga during spring training.
