Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
Tulowitzki hit his third HR yesterday. His HR was a no doubter that went well past the left field wall for 2 RBI.
Fantasy Impact: The highly talented SS has 3 HR, 8 RBI with a .345/.400/.792 stat line in 10 spring games. Tulowitzki insists that he is healthy and is focusing on playing more games this season. I wouldn't bank on 150+ games played but don't let him slip too far.

Troy Tulowitzki played shortstop and went 1-1 with a solo home run and a walk on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Impact: It is great to see Tulowitzki not only playing, but taking the field at shortstop. He will continue to be eased along this spring but barring any setbacks, he is again a legitimate first or second round fantasy selection.

Troy Tulowitzki took the field for the first time this spring on Monday. He went 0-2 at the plate, leaving two runners stranded, but the most important thing is that he is healthy.
Fantasy Impact: Assuming Tulowitzki doesn't have a setback, he appears all systems go for Opening Day. Last season Tulowitzki was limited to 91 games, but he mashed in those 91 games hitting for a .340 average with 21 home runs and 52 RBI. Be cautious with selecting Tulowitzki this season. He will provide elite numbers as long as he is healthy, so if you draft him, make sure you grab a solid backup as well.

Fantasy Impact: Tulowitzki has been a huge injury risk in fantasy baseball over the past few seasons and this season is no different. He is recovering from hip surgery and is expected to be ready for Opening Day. Tulowitzki still offers first-round production, however be familiar with the risk he presents if you pick him.

With the Red Sox and Mets fading in negotiations with the star SS, the Yankees check the price on Tulowitzki. (Source: Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Although the price would be steep, the Yankees do need a huge bat and Tulowitzki is a top-five talent when healthy. In the best case scenario for the Yankees, they would shift Didi Gregorious to 2B and Tulowitzki to SS, giving them an elite fielding combination as well. Tulowitzki would easily hit 30 home runs in the Bronx and regain his .900+ OPS, but health is always the issue with Tulowitzki; another issue for the Yankees is the price to obtain the superstar.
