We feel like he really helps solidify our infield defense, which should be a real strength next year."
SS | Troy Tulowitzki | Colorado Rockies | Injury, Fantasy

SS | Hanley Ramirez | Los Angeles Dodgers | Fantasy
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the team still views SS Hanley Ramirez as their opening day shortstop. Ramirez is planning to represent the Dominican Republic in next spring's World Baseball Classic, and Mattingly said the team won't keep him from doing that, as long as he plays shortstop.

3B | Michael Young | Texas Rangers | Fantasy
Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said INF Michael Young's 2013 role has yet to be determined. Young was the primary designated hitter last year but also played quite a bit in the infield. "Michael is a part of this team and as far as I'm concerned he'll continue to be a big part of this team. We've just got to wait and see because there's some youth that's going to be infused and we've just got to wait and see how that process works," Washington said. The team could choose to move 2B Ian Kinsler to first base to make room for SS Jurickson Profar, which would cut into Young's playing time. 1B Mike Olt could also take time away from Young.

The Phillies are expecting added revenue from local TV rights, so they might have enough money to add Hamilton to the mix.

SP | Gavin Floyd | Chicago White Sox | Free Agents, Fantasy,

Pierzynski and the Red Sox now have a surplus at catcher after signing C Mike Napoli. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is eligible for free agency after next year and the Red Sox haven't entered negotiations on a multi-year deal with him, possibly making him expendable with C Ryan Lavarnway around also.

RP | Pedro Strop | Baltimore Orioles | Fantasy,
Baltimore Orioles RP Pedro Strop is expected to pitch for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic next spring. RP Jim Johnson was asked to be a part of Team USA, but he's expected to pass it up. SP Wei-Yin Chen is not expected to pitch for Taiwan.
RP | Jason Frasor | free agent | Free Agents,
The Los Angeles Dodgers are eyeing free-agent RPs Mark Lowe (Rangers) and Jason Frasor (Blue Jays) as they look to strengthen their bullpen.

RP | Brian Wilson | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
San Francisco Giants vice president of baseball operations Bobby Evans had some strong words to say, indicating that free-agent RP Brian Wilson (Giants) would remain in San Fran. "I think Brian's a Giant for life, and he'll hopefully be a guy who'll consider coming back here as he evaluates his options," Evans said, adding that the organization respected Wilson's right to look elsewhere. Manager Bruce Bochy plans to call Wilson soon in order to persuade him to re-sign. Regardless of if Wilson returns, though, Bochy said that RP Sergio Romo will serve as the team's closer, barring drastic roster moves.
RP | Mike Adams | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are one of the teams looking at free-agent RP Sean Burnett (Nationals) as they look to strengthen the depth of their bullpen. Burnett would give the Angels another lefty to pair with RP Scott Downs. Another option is free-agent RP Mike Adams (Rangers). The Angels checked in on RP Joakim Soria before he agreed with the Texas Rangers. Signing another reliever would almost surely take the Angels out of the sweepstakes to re-sign SP Zack Greinke.
