News 
 Cleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana went 3-for-3 with a homer in an 11-7 loss to the Angels in Cactus League action on Tuesday.

Tue, Mar 3rd
Christian Walker is making a slow start to ramping up Spring Training workouts due to general body soreness, according to manager Tory Lovullo.

Notes 
 In OBP leagues, he's a Top 50 player. It's hard to expect a repeat of a .281 average from Santana in his 34-year-old season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
First base seems to be Walker's job to lose. He was buried for the longest time before emerging in Arizona that we have to give him another shot for a full season to see if he's legitimate or not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After a lousy 2018, it seemed Santana's bat had finally hit the end of career wall, but he bounced back to a tune of 34 homers, 110 runs and saw his batting average soar from .229 to .281. All are expected to regress in 2019, but not enough to make him worth passing on in the 12th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Walker finished as a top 15 first basemen with a near-identical stat-line to Paul Goldschmidt. He slowed down in the second half and the batting average won't be useful but unless Seth Beer forces Arizona's hand, Walker should again get 25+ homers for fantasy owners this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Nice late round 1B or CI option. Hits the ball very hard so the power should remain.
