Felipe Rivero signs four-year contract with Pirates photo
Rivero was outstanding as the Pirates closer last year, and he obviously has the job locked up going forward. With elite ratios and complete job security, he should be one of the top fantasy relief pitchers in 2018.

Curtis Granderson signs with the Blue Jays photo
Granderson slumped as a part-time player with the Dodgers, but did manage an .815 OPS with the Mets in 111 games last year. His exact role is unclear, but he'll likely platoon with Steve Pearce. That should make him a fine option in DFS or AL-only leagues, especially those with ...

Travis Shaw the subject of trade rumors photo
These are merely rumors at this point, and a trade seems unlikely, but Shaw flourished in his first season with Milwaukee, hitting a career high 31 home runs in 606 PAs, so a trade may not be the best thing for his value. Miller Park is known to favor left-handed ...

Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) progressing ahead of schedule in rehab photo
Nelson was originally slated to start his throwing program during spring training, so this puts him several weeks ahead of schedule. His status for Opening Day is still doubtful, but this is certainly an encouraging sign.

Andrew McCutchen traded to Giants photo
The 31-year-old McCutchen is coming off a bounce-back season in 2017. He hit .279/.363/.486 to go along with 28 homers and 11 stolen bases. He's also playing for a new contract this season, so there are reasons to be optimistic about his 2018 fantasy prospects.

Howie Kendrick signs two-year deal with Nationals photo
Kendrick played well last season, finishing with an .843 OPS between the Nationals and the Phillies, the highest of his career. He'll likely take on a super-utility role with the Nationals again, and should have value in NL-only leagues.

Brad Hand signs extension with Padres photo
Hand finished the season as the Padres' closer, and was one of the top RP overall last season for fantasy owners. Hand will see a boost in value in most leagues now that he'll remain in the closer role with the Padres, though his opportunities for saves could be few ...

Gerrit Cole traded to Astros photo
Cole is coming off a down season, during which he pitched to a 4.26 ERA. Though he should bounce back, he'll obviously be pitching in a tougher league with the Astros, though he won't need to take on the ace role at this point. In the end, his value changes ...

Adrian Gonzalez signs with the New York Mets photo
Gonzalez played in just 71 games in 2017 and hit .242 with three homers. He was traded to the Atlanta Braves this off-season who immediately released him. The 35-year-old Gonzalez is a low-risk signing for the Mets. It's unclear who will be the primary first baseman in Queens between Gonzalez ...

Addison Reed signs with the Minnesota Twins photo
The relief market continues to be one of the only position groups making waves this off-season. Reed turned 29 years old this winter, and is coming off a year where he posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 76 strikeouts in 76 innings. It's unclear if Reed will take closing ...
