Description: White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 on Saturday and actually lowered his spring training batting average.
Insight: That should tell owners all they need to know about Abreu's March. He is hitting .479 in 48 at-bats. It isn't all great for Abreu, though, as 19 of his 23 hits have been singles. His two hits on Saturday were also singles.
Description: Cubs super prospect Kris Bryant continued his hot spring, going 4-for-5 with three runs against the Rockies on Saturday.
Insight: Bryant had a double and three singles. He is hitting .459 in 37 at-bats this spring. He is still, however, not expected to begin the season in the big leagues, but he is still worth drafting in a later round in redraft leagues.
Description: Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager hit a solo home run versus Giants starter Jake Peavy on Saturday.
Insight: Seager is hitting .300 with three home runs and 10 RBI this month after signing a huge contract extension in the offseason. Owners should not sleep on Seager, who is coming off a career-best season in 2014 when he hit 25 home runs with 96 RBI.
Description: Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder went 2-for-2 with an RBI on Saturday against the Padres.
Insight: Fielder had an RBI-single versus Ross, who had a great day on the hill besides allowing the single to Fielder. The first baseman is hitting .324 this spring and looks fine, having recovered from neck surgery in the offseason.
Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and four RBI on Saturday versus the Cubs.
Insight: Frazier also hit a home run on Thursday. He has four dingers this spring with 12 RBI. Frazier is also hitting .262 in March, showing that once again he can provide power, a little bit of speed and an ok average.
Description: Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius sprained his left wrist and will have X-rays.
Insight: We will know more after the results are out. If it's serious, the Yankees have Stephen Drew to slide over to shortstop. Gregorius has a tough assignment this season - replace the legend known as Derek Jeter.
Description: Nationals 3B/LF/1B Ryan Zimmerman will miss a few days due to a left shoulder injury, according to Mark Zuckerman of CSN.
Insight: It's not his throwing shoulder, so we think it's still OK to draft him. Zimmerman is expected to be the Nationals primary first baseman this season where his production should make him a middle-of-the-pack fantasy value. He'll likely keep his multi-position eligibility which should help.
Description: Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon had another MRI on Tuesday which showned the MCL in his left knee is still sprained.
Insight: Rendon suffered this injury on March 9 and he still isn't 100 percent. Washington hasn't ruled Rendon out for Opening Day, but there seems to be an increasing liklihood that he could miss the start of the season. This might drop his draft stock slightly, but owners shouldn't let him fall too far.
Description: Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Alex Rodriguez can be the team's regular designated hitter this season according to the Wall Street Journal.
Insight: Rodriguez is hitting .286 with two home runs and a double in 33 plate appearances this spring. Rodriguez is going to turn 40 and both his hips have already been surgically repaired, so he could benefit from a full season just hitting.
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.
Description: Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis missed a fifth straight game on Monday due to back spasms according to MLB.com.
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.
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher (surgery on both knees) ran the bases Sunday and said he felt great, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: Swisher had knee issues all last season and hit .208 with eight homers, 42 RBI, 111 Ks and a .609 OPS in 360 at-bats. He'll struggle to get at-bats in a strong Indians lineup and fantasy owners should probably ignore him until late in the draft, if at all.
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (foot) said he feels great.
Insight: This was after hitting and running on Saturday, and as a result, Cabrera hopes to make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday. The signs continue to trend in the right direction for him to be ready for Opening Day.
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.
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.
