Updated 3/18

SPRING TRAINING NOTES:

(SUNDAY 3/11)

  • John Danks (3 INN, 3 Hits, 1 ER, 4 BB, K).  Second bad start of the Spring.
  • Addison Reed (1 INN, 1 R, 2 BB).  Thornton gets more breathing room as White Sox closer.

  • Drew Stubbs (SB).  Stole his first of the Spring, good 20/20 candidate.
  • Derek Holland (3 INN, 3 H, ER, 4 Ks).  In line for a huge season if Texas goes 5 man rotation.
  • Shin Soo-Choo (2-3).  Staying hot this Spring.
  • Yovani Gallardo (3 1/3 INN, 3 H, BB, 2 Ks).  Dominant Spring.
  • Jonathan LuCroy (1-3, SB).  First of the Spring, anything more would be surprising.
  • Felix Hernandez (4 INN, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 Ks).  Should be dominant.
  • Brian Wilson (INN, H, K).  The Beard was good in his debut.
  • Trayvon Robinson (3-4, HR, 2 RBI).  Supposed to be a great player one day.

  • Vernon Wells (2-4, HR, 5 RBI).  Could bounce back in big way.
  • Mark Trumbo (3-4, HR, 2 RBI).  If every day 3rd Base he would be huge.

  • Ryan Roberts (1-1, 2 SB).  I’m drafting this guy.  Easy 20/20.
  • Orlando Hudson (2-3, HR, 2 RBI).  Solid last season w/ 19 SBs.
  • Yonder Alonso (2-3, 2 RBI).  Could be real deal.
  • Daniel Hudson (3 INN, 3 Ks).  That’s the start we were waiting for.
  • Matt Garza (1 1/3 INN, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, K).  Garza will go undervalued.
  • Ted Lilly (3 INN, H, BB).  He will go very late.
  • Johan Santana (2 2/3 INN, 2 H, BB, 2 Ks).  Good Spring so far.
  • Mark Buehrle (4 INN, 5 H, 2 ER, BB, K, W). No K’s but will find way to get wins.
  • Tyler Pastornicky (1-4, SB).  Finally we see those wheels.
  • Ricky Romero (3 INN, H, 4 Ks).  Should be huge this season.

  • Ricky Porcello (4 INN, 6 H, 2 ER, BB, 2 Ks). Double digit wins.
  • Jonathan Papelbon (1 INN, 2 H, ER).  Not perfect anymore.
  • Russell Martin (0-2, SB).  4th SB of the spring, could steal double digits.

  • Phil Hughes (3 INN, H, BB, K).  Should bounce back this season.
  • Matt Capps (INN, BB, K).  Closer job is his for now.

  • Jon Lester (4 INN, H, ER, 4 BB, 2 Ks).  Will be beasting this season.

—————————————————————————————————————–

(Monday 3/11)

  • Jimmy Rollins (1-3, HR, RBI).  Rollins is having a nice Spring and is a 15/30 candidate if he stays healthy.
  • Vance Worley (4 INN, 8 Ks).  Ok, let’s see if he can do it again.
  • James Shields (4 INN, 3 H, 2 BB, 2 Ks).  Shields is going to have a nice season.
  • Kyle Farnsworth (INN, 2 H, R).  Semi-hurt his chances of holding that closer job all season.
  • Carl Pavano (4 INN, 4 H, ER, BB, 3 Ks).  If you are desperate late for a pitcher.
  • Ben Revere (1-3, SB).  2nd of the Spring, he could get 30 during the season.
  • Lucas Duda (1-2, HR, 4 RBI).  Nice 2nd half of the season last year.
  • Alex Avila (2-2, 2 RBI).  Should be in line for a nice season.
  • Miguel Cabrera (2-3, RBI).  Might lead majors in RBIs.
  • Martin Prado (3-4, RBI, SB).  Nice a bit of everything guy.
  • Jonny Venters (2 INN, H, 2 ER, 3 BB, K).  2 INN is too much for him to go.
  • Craig Kimbrel (1 INN, H, 2 BB, 2 Ks).  Kimbrel is the best closer in fantasy.
  • Jamie Garcia (2 INN, 3 H, ER, BB, K).  The K’s last time proved to be a fluke.
  • Jason Motte (1 INN, 2 H, ER, 2 Ks, W).  The W will cover up the bad appearance.
  • Jordan Zimmerman (3 2/3 INN, 7 H, 4 ER, BB).  Bad start, should be solid.
  • Ryan Zimmerman (2-3, HR, RBI).  Getting hot.
  • David Freese (1-2, HR, 3 RBI).  First of the Spring, nice bench player.
  • Wei-Yin Chen (3 INN, 2 H, ER, BB, 2 Ks).  So far a bench fantasy option.
  • Brandon Morrow (3 INN, H, 2 Ks).  Solid K pitcher, he’s worth reaching for.
  • Kelly Johnson (1-2, SB).  Nice to see him rack that up.
  • Josh Beckett (4 INN, H, ER, BB, 3 Ks).  I’m reaching for him.
  • Ricky Nolasco (3 1/3 INN, 3 H, 3 ER, BB, K).  Wait and see.
  • Nelson Cruz (1-3, HR, RBI).  Plenty more of those to come.
  • Miguel Olivo (1-3, HR, 3 RBI).  Great steal late.
  • Ichiro Suzuki (0-2, SB).  Haven’t said his name a lot, nice SB.
  • Joe Nathan (INN, 2 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 Ks).  Bad appearance.
  • Matt Harrison (3 INN, 3 H, ER, 2 Ks).  Could get cheap wins if starter for the whole season.
  • Ubaldo Jimenez (3 INN, 3 H, ER, 2 BB, K).  Bad spring, at least he took a step in the right direction.
  • Vinnie Pestano (INN, H, BB, 3 Ks).  Could be the closer all season for Cleveland if Perez does not come in strong.
  • Carlos Marmol (INN, 2 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, K, W).  Terrible Spring, back-to-back blowups.
  • Bronson Arroyo (2 INN, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, K).  Might lose his job to Chapman at some point this season.
  • Alfonso Soriano (2-3, HR, 3 RBI).  Ready for a dynamite season, 4th of the Spring.
  • Zack Cozart (1-2, 2 RBI).  I like him a lot.
  • Jered Weaver (1 2/3 INN, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 Ks).  Dream Weaver unraveled, he should be fine.
  • Aaron Harang (3 INN, 3 H, ER, 2 Ks).  Could be a good sleeper.
  • Dee Gordon (1-3, SB).  Another SB brings his total to 4.  The sky is the limit.
  • Matt Kemp (1-2, SB).  50/50 season could happen.
  • Howie Kendrick (2-3, SB).  20 HRs, plus double digits SB on top.
  • Tim Lincecum (4 INN, H, 2 BB, 4 Ks).  That’s the Lincecum we expect.
  • Gregor Blanco (3-3, RBI, SB).  6 SB’s this spring has me wanting him as a late round flier.  Next Cameron Maybin if they find the lineup space.
  • Tyson Ross (3 INN, 3 H, 2 BB, 2 Ks).  Could be next Oakland pitcher to be a good fantasy option.
  • Grant Balfour (INN, K).  Closer job is his for now.
  • Jake Peavy (2 1/3 INN, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, K).  Yikes, I’m passing on the comeback season.
  • Corey Luebke (3 INN, H, BB, 2 Ks).  Should be solid this season.
  • Rafael Betancourt (INN, H).  Could easily get 35+ Saves.
  • Cameron Maybin (2-3, HR, RBI).  10/40 Season would be great.
  • Wilin Rosario (2-3, HR, 4 RBI).  Next best thing from the catcher position.
  • Hiroki Kuroda (3 INN, 2 H, 2 BB, 2 Ks).  Kuroda should be solid if he can get it together.  This was a good start.

  • Ben Revere (3-4, SB). Nice 30+ SB candidate.
  • Pablo Sandoval (1-3, HR, 2 RBI). 3rd of the Spring, should be 30 HR guy.
  • Angel Pagan (2-4, HR, RBI). Could steal 30+ Bases with ease.
  • Ryan Theriot (1-4, HR, 2 RBI). 1st of the spring nice end of the draft guy.
  • Tim Lincecum (6 INN, 6 H, ER, 4 Ks).  Lincey.
  • Brian Wilson (2/3 INN, H, 2 BB, 2Ks). Solid, yet not.
  • Ian Kinsler (3-4, HR, 2 RBI). 30/30 season is coming.
  • Michael Young (2-4, RBI). Will be solid all season.
  • Jason Kubel (3-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI).  Interesting sleeper.
  • Bronson Arroyo (4 INN, 4 H, ER, 2 Ks). That will keep him a job.
  • Ubaldo Jimenez (3 2/3 INN, 5 H, 6 ER, 4 BB, 4 Ks). I’ll pass.
  • Vinnie Pestano (1 1/3 INN, 3 H, 2 Ks). Will be solid to start season.
  • Zack Cozart (2-3, 2 RBI). Cozart is a solid hitter.
  • Brandon Phillips (1-3, HR, RBI). 20/20 guy easy.
  • Travis Hafner (2-3, RBI). People will forget about him.
  • Devin Mesoraco (1-2, RBI, SB). Let’s see if he steals more than 1.
  • Rafel Betancourt (2/3 5 H, 4 ER, K). Nobody wants to see that.
  • Corey Luebke (4 INN, 6 H, 2 ER, BB, 4 Ks). Against the Royals.
  • Bruce Chen (3 INN, 8 H, 5 ER, 2K). Pass on him.
  • Huston Street (INN, 2 Ks).  Solid.
  • Brandon Belt (1-3, HR, 3 RBI). Bombs away.
  • Aaron Harang (4 INN, 7 H, 2 ER, 4 Ks). Interesting, but bad.
  • Jason Heyward (2-4, SB). First the HR, and now the SB.
  • Daniel Murphy (2-3). Typical game.
  • Jonathan Niese (5 1/3 INN, 6 H, 3 K). Rough spring, nice start.
  • Frank Francisco (INN). Might have closer job still?
  • Josh Beckett (5 INN, 2 H, ER, BB, 2 Ks).  Beckett is the man and I am drafting him.
  • Geovany Soto (2-2, HR, RBI). 1st of the Spring, not impressed.
  • Jake Peavy (5 INN, BB, 5 Ks).  Nice start, maybe Seattle is really bad.
  • Addison Reed (1 1/3, H, BB, 2 Ks). Soon to be closer.
  • Alex Rios (2-4, RBI). Could bat 3rd, nice sleeper.
  • Derek Holland (4 INN, H, 2 Ks). Ready to breakout.
  • Jon Axford (INN, H). Closer job is his.
  • Jered Weaver (4 INN, 2 H, ER, BB, 4 Ks).  Elite start.
