Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp (ankle) is playing center field in a minor league intrasquad game Wednesday, March 12, for his first action in the field this year.
FANTASY TIP: Another positive step for Kemp here. If he can avoid any major setbacks, we could see Kemp return to the Dodgers in early May. Based on where he's going in drafts right now, he could be a major steal if he stays healthy and bounces back.

The Cleveland Indians re-assigned SS Francisco Lindor to minor league camp Wednesday, March 12.
FANTASY TIP: Lindor is a fine young shortstop prospect for the Indians, and there's a good chance he could be a September call-up for the Tribe this season. With Asdrubal Cabrera's time in Cleveland likely coming to an end, 2015 could be the year Lindor is up for good.

Cincinnati Reds SP Mat Latos (knee) tossed curveballs and sliders in his bullpen session Tuesday, March 11, and he's scheduled to move to live batting practice next. Manager Bryan Price said Latos is "very close to game-ready."
FANTASY TIP: Latos presents you with pretty nice value on draft day thanks to his knee surgery. However, with reports that he's close to pitching in games again, he might start sliding back up draft boards. Expect him to miss a start or two in the regular season, if that.

The Baltimore Ravens reached a four-year deal to re-sign WR Jacoby Jones Wednesday, March 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.
FANTASY TIP: Jones' main value to the Ravens is on special teams. He provides a deep threat in the passing game, but his value on a week-to-week basis is usually boom or bust. And the Ravens are surely to add another dynamic receiving threat either in free agency or through the draft.
