  • CWS Relief Pitcher #66
    Navarro appeared in 8 games for the White Sox and posted a 7.27 ERA with 9 strikeouts across 8 2/3 innings last season. After the season, he was sent outright to Triple-A Charlotte. Navarro wasn’t expected to have a major role for the White Sox this season, but it’s a tough blow for the 25-year-old.
  • FA Catcher #99
    Sanchez agreed to terms with the Brewers on February 7 for a one-year deal worth $7 million. However, after the results of his physical, the expectation is he will accept a lower base salary with incentives that can get him up to the original $7 million if he stays healthy, according to Ken Rosenthal. The 31-year-old catcher is expected to backup William Contreras and be used as a designated hitter. This move will hurt Eric Haase, who the Brewers signed in December, as he is expected to stay with the team. Sanchez was an integral part of Blake Snell’s success last season in San Diego. When Sanchez was with Snell, the southpaw posted a 1.29 ERA in 105 innings. It will be interesting to see if the Brewers are eyeing Snell to join Sanchez as the 2023 NL Cy Young winner is still a free agent.
  • CWS Right Fielder #8
    Fletcher was acquired by the White Sox in February after the team traded away Christian Mena. Fletcher made his MLB debut last April with the Diamondbacks and is now in the driving seat to get majority of the work in right field in Chicago. The 26-year-old outfielder put up nice numbers in Arizona when he slashed .301/.350/.441 in 102 plate appearances. He only produced two home runs in his 28 games with the D-backs and is likely not going to be a significant player for fantasy managers.
  • SF First Baseman
    Eldridge, the 16th overall pick in the 2023 MLB Draft, came in with expectations to be a two-way player for the Giants, but that idea has gone to the wayside, at least for now. The 6-foot-7 prospect has been referred to as the “American Ohtani”, as he can pitch into the mid-90s and has shown impressive power at the plate. He put up ridiculous numbers in his senior year at James Madison High in Vienna, VA — he posted an absurd 1.706 OPS and paired that with a 1.06 ERA. At 18 years old, he is a name to keep on the radar for dynasty leagues, but it will take some time before fantasy managers see him in the majors.
  • TB Starting Pitcher #57
    The move doesn’t come as a surprise as Rasmussen is expected to miss most — if not all — the entire 2024 season. Rasmussen underwent surgery to repair the UCL in his right elbow last July. This offseason, the Rays and the 28-year-old righty settled on a one-year, $1.86 million contract to avoid arbitration. The roster decision comes as the Rays signed Amed Rosario to a one-year deal and now have their 40-man roster set heading into the first set of spring training games.
  • Col Relief Pitcher #62
    Carasiti was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque after the 2023 season, but has experience pitching for Colorado in the majors. The 32-year-old righty posted a 6.29 ERA over 24 1/3 innings last season. With his big league experience, he could end up finding a spot in the bullpen, but fantasy managers shouldn’t expect much this season.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #17
    As the Dodgers gear up for their series opener against the Padres in Korea, Shohei Ohtani looks like he wants to do everything he can to be ready for the first game of the season. Roberts said the 50 at-bats could be a combination of live batting practice, simulation games and Cactus League. These goals for Ohtani should give fantasy managers, once again, some relief that he will be good to go for Opening Day.
  • Det Center Fielder #26
    Hopkins, 27, made his major league debut for the Reds last season, going 7-for-41 with no extra-base hits. It’s possible he’d be of use as a part-timer against lefties, but that’s probably his ceiling. He’ll probably have to beat out Akil Baddoo for a roster spot in order to make the team.
  • Det Relief Pitcher #66
    The Tigers claimed Ingram from the Angels two weeks ago and seemed rather high on him, so this is a surprise, and it makes us wonder if his stuff was a little off in his initial throwing sessions. The 27-year-old Ingram made his major league debut last season, giving up five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings for the Angels. He struck out 77 in 61 innings while pitching in relief in the minors.
  • NYM Catcher #4
    Héctor Gómez reported earlier today that a deal was close, but none of the Mets reporters are following suit and now Alvarez is indicating the report was false. “My agent hasn’t told me anything, so I am assuming that they haven’t had any types of conversations,” Alvarez said. “They haven’t approached me with any types of conversations.”
