Fantasy Impact: The 23-year-old SS Anderson finished 2016 with a .283 average, nine home runs, 30 RBI, 57 runs, and 10 stolen bases in 99 games played. With this extension the White Sox have shown they are dedicated to their franchise shortstop for a very long time. Dynasty wise Anderson could very well be one of the most underrated players in fantasy baseball. If you're rebuilding, in a dynasty, go after Anderson as he is a "buy-low" candidate. In re-draft Anderson is a great value play after the first tier of SS go.

The New York Mets have assigned OF Tim Tebow to their class-A affiliate Columbia Fireflies. (Source: Newsday Sports on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tebow has never been a source of fantasy relevance but it is nice to know that he's getting a shot at his major league dream. Leave Tebow off of ever roster you have.

Ildemaro Vargas was sent to Triple-A Reno on Friday. He played 49 games there last year and was added to the 40-man roster over the off season. (Source: Arizona Diamondbacks on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vargas was starting to generate a lot of hype in Arizona at Spring Training this year. He had appeared in 18 games for the D-backs playing both middle infield positions as well as spending some time at third base. Vargas certainly gives the team options, but for now we will have to wait and see where he ends up His approach at the plate really stood out last year, when he had more walks (20) than strike outs (13) with the Aces.

Reds 2B Dilson Herrera has been reassigned to the club's minor league camp. (Source: Zach Buchanan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This cut was expected. Herrera is likely to start the season in AAA Louisville where he will receive ample playing time and at bats, rather than wasting away on the Reds bench. He is poised to be the Reds 2B of the future, once Zack Cozart has parted.
