The Miami Dolphins are looking to add a big running back this offseason that can succeed in short-yardage situations and run over defenders in late-game situations protecting a lead. The team believes they can find value at the running back position in the later rounds of the draft.

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (elbow) received an anti-inflammatory injection for his lingering elbow soreness Thursday, March 13, but remained in the lineup as the designated hitter. "This happens every spring training," Choo said. "It's the same problem, the same pain. Normally, it takes about 10 days, I take medicine. I DH. I get treatment. It makes it better."
FANTASY TIP: Choo wouldn't be out there playing the same day he received a shot if this was a serious issue. Choo should be fine for the regular season opener unless the shot doesn't cure the soreness and it becomes something else entirely.

Boston Red Sox SP Jake Peavy (finger) allowed a run and two hits while walking two in three-plus innings in his spring debut Thursday, March 13, and he hit 93 mph several times with his fastball. "It was nice to get out there for the first time in a game-like atmosphere and to be able to use all your pitches and be able to use that next step," Peavy said. "It was nice to ramp up the intensity a little bit more than I had been."
