Description: Royals outfielder Alex Rios will miss the next few days due to a jammed thumb.
Insight: Rios is a solid fantasy option who could put up 20-20 type numbers though his home run total dropped significantly last season. His average season over the last five years is .275 with 16 HR, 71 RBI, 74 runs and 25 steals.
Description: Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun was hit on the hand Monday and will not swing a bat for a day or two.
Insight: It doesn't appear to be serious, but keep an eye on his return. Calhoun batted .272 with 17 HR, 58 RBI and 90 runs in 127 games and proved to be a reliable fantasy outfielder. He should be again this season.
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun hit his first Cactus League home run on Friday.
Insight: Braun's thumb appears healthy, but we'd like to see more of this before we pick him high on Draft Day. Braun will remain a top pick in 2015 despite hitting .266/.324/.453 with 19 home runs and 81 RBI last season.
Description: Braves outfield Nick Markakis is not guaranteed to be ready for Opening Day, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez.
Insight: Markakis was signed to replace Jason Heyward in right field, but had offseason fusion surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. He hit .276/.342/.386 with 42 extra-base hits, 81 runs and 50 RBI last season.
