Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (calf) will make his Cactus League debut Monday, March 17.
FANTASY TIP: Hamilton will have some time to establish that he's ready for Opening Day. He's a decent middle-rounds purchase in mixed leagues for his rebound potential but, as usual, comes with plenty of risk with his health.

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez will start at second base Monday, March 17, in the split-squad game. He hasn't played the keystone since high school, and Chicago wants to find ways to get him comfortable at positions besides shortstop.
FANTASY TIP: Baez is expected to start 2014 at Class AAA Iowa, but with his hot spring hitting, he's making a case to be brought up at least immediately after the Super 2 deadline. He's inching closer to a 300-plus-at-bat season, which makes him a justified late-rounds gamble in mixed leagues.

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers won the starting catcher job.
FANTASY TIP: Flowers has shown 15-20 home-run potential in the minors but has struggled to hit much at the big-league level. He hit 10 homers last season but only at a .195 clip. He's best served as a second catcher or in AL-only leagues.
