The Arizona Cardinals have signed free-agent WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Panthers) to an undisclosed three-year deal Thursday, March 13.
FANTASY TIP: Ginn's greatest contributions will come on special teams. He is unlikely to be worth rostering as a wide receiver unless injuries open up significant playing time.

The St. Louis Cardinals are optioning OF Oscar Taveras to minor league camp Thursday, March 13.
FANTASY TIP: Perhaps this will temper excitement for those wanting to draft Taveras in mixed universes. He'll need to demonstrate that he's fully past his ankle woes for the Cards to bring him up early in the season. There's still a good chance he spends a large chunk of the season in St. Louis, but don't overspend.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (teeth) had four wisdom teeth removed Thursday, March 13, and he's expected to sit out three to five days. The team thinks he'll still have time to be ready for opening day, although he has yet to play the field this spring.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (calf) will take live batting practice Thursday, March 13, and he's still targeting early next week to return to spring games.
FANTASY TIP: Hamilton is running out of time in order to get ready for the regular season, and he'll definitely need to open on the DL if he suffers a setback. If he doesn't receive enough spring at-bats, his timing at the plate may suffer in April. Keep that in mind.
