Decent pick but don't overrate LASIK and he's only been healthy for one week (don't jump the gun on that).


LASIK is like a punch-line now when it comes to spring reporting isn't it?

"I've been working out, and I've had LASIK too!"
"Sure buddy"

Freese has a leg injury, but he is fighting back for the 3B job.
Mather "won" the job and immediately went into a slump. :-?

I wanted to bump this thread and see if anyone else has been shaken out in the last few days.

Oh I'm not, just mentioning it because it is true and we don't know what kind of effect it can have. Since this is talking about deep leagues he has values in daily lineups against lefties no matter what. Guys like Scott Hairston and Bill Hall who mash lefties but struggle against righties can have a lot of value in smaller roles in deep leagues.

Right now, James McDonald has the lead for the Dodgers' #5 job. The Dodgers originally wanted McDonald to maintain a long relief role, but he's turning in the strongest audition by far. If Jason Schmidt is deemed fit enough, that could complicate McDonald's stay in the rotation, but it seems like he'll start out of the gate.

Is he unexpectedly making the team? Really? He only lead the AL league in games played at catcher last year. Who did he win a spot over?

Please stop trolling for help.

Kurt Suzuki's a great one! I was sure Rob Bowen would win the C job...

Back in reality, Jordan Schafer is looking like he could win the CF job for the Braves. Nothing has been announced yet, but if you have an open roster spot, he could go 15/15 this year (5 SB's this spring)

schafer's been hot but if they can't trade josh anderson, they have to keep anderson since he's out of options.
