SS | Derek Jeter | New York Yankees | Injury, Fantasy
New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter (ankle) resumed on-field workouts Monday, Jan. 20, by hitting off a tee and fielding 108 groundballs at the team's spring training complex. "It's good to have a normal offseason and get some work in," Jeter said. "Everything is normal now."


OF | Lucas Duda | New York Mets | Fantasy
The New York Mets will continue contract talks with OF Lucas Duda even though the two sides have exchanged figures in advance of an arbitration hearing in February. Duda requested $1.9 million and the Mets countered with $1.35 million.

Starting Pitcher

SP | Masahiro Tanaka | Japanese League | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The Chicago Cubs are expected to outbid other teams for the services of Japanese SP Masahiro Tanaka, according to industry sources.

SP | John Lannan | New York Mets | Fantasy,
New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team isn't done searching for starting pitching, even after signing SP John Lannan. Lannan and SP Jenrry Mejia figure to be the main competitors for the final rotation spot behind SPs Bartolo Colon, Jon Niese, Zack Wheeler and Dillon Gee.

SP | Shelby Miller | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy,
St. Louis Cardinals SP Shelby Miller said he didn't tire down the stretch and wasn't injured in any way at the end of last season. Miller was used for only one inning in the Cardinals' postseason run. "It's tough to not get to pitch in the postseason and stuff, but at the same time, we had a good thing going and it's hard to change it up," Miller said. "I don't really have a good answer for it to be honest. We were winning games, so you can't really complain."
