Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (hip) has started fielding practice this week, according to the team's site.
Insight: Tulowitzki was already taking hitting sessions. He's played 143 games or less in each of the last five seasons. In 91 games last year, the fantasy stud batted .340 with 21 homers, 52 RBI, 71 runs and a 1.035 OPS. He just has to stay healthy.
Description: The Blue Jays are considering signing shortstop Everth Cabrera according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Insight: Cabrera's career has suffered from off-the-field issues the last few years. He should come very cheap, and Toronto would presumably play him at second base. If Cabrera gets significant time, he will be one of the best base-stealing second basemen for fantasy owners in 2015.
Description: Reds manager Bryan Price said first baseman Joey Votto's health is looking "very, very good" according to MLBlogs.
Insight: That's reassuring for a first baseman who missed 100 games last season due to a distal quad strain. Votto should be healthy at the start of the season and has a .310/.417/.533 career slash line.
Description: The Pirates have signed shortstop Jung-ho Kang to a four-year deal.
Insight: Kang should be given a chance to beat out Jordy Mercer, who did little to help fantasy owners (.255, 12 HR, 55 RBI, 56 RBI, 4 SB). Kang batted .356 with 40 home runs and 117 RBI in 117 games last season for the Nexen Heroes of the Korean Baseball Organization.
Description: Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (September season-ending wrist surgery) has been cleared for all baseball activities, according to manager John Farrell.
Insight: Pedroia hit.278 with seven home runs, 72 runs scored and 53 RBI last season. Those numbers were a significant drop from previous years, but if he's healthy he's still a top-10 fantasy second baseman.
Description: Orioles third baseman Manny Machado (August knee surgery) appears ready for training camp.
Insight: Machado took part in minicamp and has been cleared for most baseball activities. He batted .278 with 12 HR and 32 RBI in 82 games last season. He has huge upside if he can get, and stay, healthy.
