SP | Matt Harrison | Texas Rangers | Injury, Fantasy,
Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) is on track to be fully healthy entering the 2014 season. He has resumed throwing and could get on a mound again next week. "My back is doing well," said Harrison, who had a pair of surgeries on his back for herniated discs this year. "I'm throwing right now. I'm back to about 150 feet now. I've been throwing about a month now, off and on, two or three times a week. The plan was for next week during the Christmas week to start getting off the mound a little bit." Harrison said he'll start throwing at 50 or 60 percent when he gets back on the mound. He doesn't expect to be limited during spring training.

Relief Pitcher

RP | Joaquin Benoit | San Diego Padres | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy,
Despite the signing of RP Joaquin Benoit, the San Diego Padres are not actively looking to move CL Huston Street.

Benoit and Street are likely to battle for the closer's job in 2014. Whoever emerges as the winner will be a strong fantasy play. The Padres aren't likely to blow out many teams, so there will be plenty of save opportunities.

RP | Ryan Madson | free agent | Injury, Free Agents, Fantasy
Free-agent RP Ryan Madson (Angels) is hosting one-on-one private workouts to demonstrate his progress from Tommy John surgery.
