Second Base Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Brian Dozier, 2B, MIN3/24/2015 10:03:00 AM
Description: Twins second baseman Brian Dozier signed a four-year, $20 million extension.
Insight: Dozier was a great value for fantasy owners in 2014, but most of his production came before the All-Star break and fantasy owners should be wary of selecting him too high. Although he was a 20-20 hitter, he hit 18 of 23 homers and accumulated 16 of 21 steals before the break.
Jason Kipnis, 2B, CLE3/23/2015 8:39:00 PM
Description: Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis missed a fifth straight game on Monday due to back spasms according to
Insight: Kipnis has a lingering back issue and has yet to be cleared for baseball activities. Kipnis has just 22 at-bats this spring due to a finger injury and the back issue, but there is no indication that he is in danger of missing opening day.
Jason Kipnis, 2B, CLE3/21/2015 3:13:00 PM
Description: Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis is out for weekend due to back spasms.
Insight: The second baseman was disappointing last season, hitting .240 with six home runs, and 41 RBI after a 17- homer, 84 RBI, 2013 season. This injury won't help his comeback efforts and fantasy should be wary that choosing him could be high risk.
Daniel Murphy, 2B, NYM3/21/2015 2:48:00 PM
Description: Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy (hamstring) will miss the next week.
Insight: Murphy batted .289 last season with nine homers, 57 RBI, 79 runs and a .734 OPS. He's a useful low-end fantasy option at second base and should be ready for the start of the season. He might start out slow having only seen 21 plate appearances so far this spring.
Ben Zobrist, 2B, OAK3/16/2015 4:39:00 PM
Description: Oakland infielder Ben Zobrist was scratched from Monday's contest with shoulder tightness.

Description: Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said second baseman Chase Utley (ankle) could debut on Friday.
Insight: Utley has been dealing with a mild right ankle sprain, and the Phillies are being very cautious. If he does make his spring debut, Utley will likely serve as the team's designated hitter.
