Toronto Blue Jays OF Anthony Alford (knee), a top prospect for Toronto, returned to action for Class A Dunedin Wednesday, April 27, after suffering a right knee injury during the season opener. Alford played five innings as the designated hitter in an extended spring training game.
Fantasy Tip: Alford's season obviously got off on the wrong foot, but this youngster has plus speed and developing power that will play at the next level. Alford hit .298 with 27 stolen bases in 107 games over multiple minor league levels in 2015. He's unlikely to make a fantasy impact until next year, but keep him on your radars in dynasty/keeper leagues.
