Chicago White Sox 3B Brent Morel (back) said he's healthy this spring after dealing with back problems last season. "A slight injury, it just makes guys look different the way they move around, and for him, he's swinging the bat free and easy," said manager Robin Ventura. "It's different when you get some spikes on and when you're running around and doing stuff. His (issue) is more kind of longevity of being able to stay and play nice and loose like that." With 3B Jeff Keppinger expected to start at third base, Morel will compete with OF Jordan Danks and 1B Lars Anderson for a spot on the bench, with INF Angel Sanchez a favorite for the utility infielder position. Ventura said Morel will see some action at a position other than third this spring.

The Cleveland Indians traded OF Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, Dec. 11, and they acquired SP Trevor Bauer from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the three-team trade. The Reds also added INF Jason Donald from the Indians, while sending minor-league SS Didi Gregorius to the Diamondbacks. The Indians sent RP Tony Sipp and 1B Lars Anderson to Arizona, and added RP Matt Albers and P Bryan Shaw.
Fantasy Tip: Choo moving to the Reds is a tremendous boon for his fantasy value. He has five-tool ability, and can be a great add early on draft day in NL-only formats, and mixed leaguers will certainly want to target him in the early to middle rounds. He'll be a consistent source of runs scored in a more potent lineup.
Bauer is the key piece for the Indians, as they get a potential cornerstone pitcher. He will be a great addition to their rotation, but keep in mind he might struggle for victories with a lineup that isn't looking too potent. In mixed leagues, he'll certainly be worth an add in the middle to late rounds for his potential, and he remains a must-have in long-term keeper formats.
