Marcus Stroman takes no-hitter into 7th, wins WBC MVP photo
Stroman was lifted immediately following the Pagan single to lead off the 7th. It seems the Classic games supercharged him for the season, and he continually induced ground balls, which he'll need to be successful in 2017. He is primed for a big bounce-back season.

Jose Altuve perfect at the plate Wednesday photo
It is good to see Altuve start to get into his 'groove' less than two weeks away from the regular season. Prior to his last three at-bats extending into Tuesday's game, Altuve was a paltry 2-for-19 from the plate. With a solid dose of at-bats in the remaining Spring Training ...

Yuli Gurriel homers for the second straight game photo
Gurriel, who will look to become the Astros everyday first baseman is starting to get hot at the plate, going five for his last seven at-bats with two home runs and five RBI during that stretch. Certainly a small sample size but it will make Gurriel owners very happy as ...

Colby Rasmus hits first home run of the Spring photo
It was just three days ago that I remarked that it looked like Rasmus was still catching up to game speed. It looks like he is there now. If he has a great season he could net you 25 home runs and a reasonable average for a very low draft ...

Tyson Ross (TOS) tosses live BP Wednesday photo
If the good news holds and he continues to progress this well he might be able to return to the rotation the first week in May. Leagues with 14 teams or more are more suitable for Ross at this point.

Andrew Cashner (biceps) goes two innings against minor league team photo
This is great news for Cashner and the team, of course. It appears now that Texas only needs one starter to step up, and that would be to fill in for Tyson Ross. Regardless, Cashner's fantasy value is limited to those that carry 10 or so pitchers.

Daniel Norris impresses against Blue Jays photo
Norris has impressed yet again, holding his own against a lineup featuring several premier right-handed batters. He appears to have locked down a spot in Detroit's rotation, and may be finally realizing his potential. He remains a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Max Scherzer to miss opening day  photo
Scherzer, regarded by most as the second best pitcher in baseball, will miss the Nationals opening day start for the first time in two years. Nationals manager Dusty Baker had stated that Scherzer will hopefully start the season as the third pitcher in the rotation. No matter what happens, Scherzer ...

Alex Meyer pulled in third inning photo
It has not been a good spring for the former first round pick, with 7.20 ERA and 2.20 WHIP in five appearances. The right-hander has the strikeout potential to be an effective starter but he needs to improve his control before he gets another opportunity in the Angels' rotation.

Yusmeiro Petit strikes out four in scoreless outing photo
Yusmeiro Petit remains in the competition for the fifth starter job, although he is likely to start the season as the swingman. Petit has only allowed one earned run in his four outings (seven innings). Tyler Skaggs and Jesse Chavez are the current favorites to secure the final two spots ...
