Might be a good break out/come back candidate---former #1 overall pick is just ooozing with potential.

That's what I worry about. I have no doubts about Burrell's ability to crush the right pitches. It's his ability to pick the right pitches that concerns me.

I wouldn't pay any attention to ST stats but it is a good sign that his wrist isn't hurting him.

Spring Training is more important than many believe. Soranio was 0-16 and will be great to trade for. Burrel is doing wel and if hes on your team, (and you don't trust that he'll do well) this is the time to trade him.

I agree that rbi's, and homeruns dont count. but stolen bases and hits are importnat to look at. Odds are, the players who don't do well in spring will rebound mid April, but from a fantasy stand point, some stats are important.

my 2 cents

So you are saying that spring stats are important, but they really aren't??

Thanks for clearing that up.

I'll need to check it before I draft, but I am pretty sure Burrell was having serious issues with his shoulder (?) popping in and out of socket prior to spring training. I noted him with a mark on my cheat sheet as an serious injury risk. Again, I need to double check that, but I wanted to pass that along. Anyone else can confirm (or dismiss) this? Thanks.

I've never read anything with Burrell having shoulder issues, I think you might have gotten him confused with someone else.
