News 
  Phillies infielder Jean Segura was scratched from Thursday's Spring Training game against the Toronto Blue Jays due to an illness.

Notes 
 There are a lot of red flags around how legitimate Escobar's production was the past couple of years. In a dynasty, I'm selling, and in a redraft, I'm looking elsewhere for a starter.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If Segura isn't going to steal bases, then what are we even doing here?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Escobar had a heck of a breakout season, driving in 118 RBIs thanks to 35 homers. The batting average will never be great but he certainly won't hurt you in that category. What's more, is that he'll qualify for 2B and 3B so that you can slide him around during the week.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
You know who didn't love stolen bases? Gabe Kapler. You know who isn't the manager of the Phillies anymore? Gabe Kapler. Segura's numbers stayed relatively consistent last year, except his stolen base totals dropped from the 20-30 range to just 10. But with Kapler out of town, there's every reason to expect the 30-year-old Segura to return to being a 20-steal player with a plus batting average who will chip in everywhere. With dual-eligibility coming, Segura shouldn't be forgotten on draft day.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Gone are the days where Segura will steal 20 or even 30 bases but he is a near-lock for double-digit homers and steals to go with an average that should again hover around .300. His ceiling falls short of many other shortstops in fantasy but the floor is terrific.
