Even if Bourjos can land a job in the White Sox outfield, he will not impact fantasy. He figures to content for the center field job, and with the likes of Charlie Tilson, Adam Engel and Jacob May on the depth chart, his chances are very good.
Forsythe proved valuable for the Rays as the leadoff hitter in 2016 as well. If he does stay in the leadoff role for the Dodgers, he proves to be a quality option in the later rounds for your middle infield.
Ross was great for the Padres for 3 seasons between 2013-2015 but he suffered an injury in his only start of 2016. Shoulder injuries are tough to come back from. The Rangers are hopeful he will be able to overcome the injury and return to form.
deGrom signed a one-year deal with the Mets today, and by doing so both sides will avoid going to arbitration. The 28-year-old has been solid for the Mets since breaking into the Major Leagues back in 2014, and last season he pitched 148 innings and had an ERA of just 3.04. New York's rotation has been decimated by injuries over the past couple of years, and the Mets will certainly be counting on deGrom to pitch well and remain healthy for all of 2017.
He now becomes the fifth player in MLB history to win the MVP twice before turning 25. Trout played on a lousy Angels team in 2016 but still put up elite numbers once more with a .315 AVG, 29 homers, 100 RBI and 30 steals to go along with the AL-leading .441 OBP. There is no doubt as to how good Trout can be and is, now it's just up to the Angels front office to put a competitive team around him going forward.
Losing Cespedes to FA would be a huge loss to the Mets. The Mets ranked near the bottom of the league in offense despite a big year from the star OF. Cespedes hit .280 with 31 HRs and 86 RBIs this past season.
Carpenter spent time all around the Cardinals infield in 2016 so his commitment to first base could make 2017 his final year with multiple position eligibility. Carpenter's offensive contributions in 2016 was solid as he hit .271 with 81 runs, 21 home runs and 68 RBI over 129 games.
Collmenter has established a place for himself as an end of the rotation arm in this league, so this deal makes sense for the Braves considering their lack of depth amongst their staff. Collmenter has also proven able to serve as a versatile innings eater out of the pen if needed, so he was just the right man for the Braves to ink considering their need for a pitching staff face lift.
With the series moving to Cleveland, the Cubs have the added benefit of using a designated hitter tonight, and they will use Kyle Schwarber in that capacity on Tuesday. Schwarber's lightning-quick return from a serious knee injury has been well-documented, but he's been able to bring a spark to the Cubs lineup by hitting .375 so far in the World Series. He'll hit second tonight for the Cubs in front of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.
In a must win game for the Cubs to reach a game seven, Schwarber will play bat second. He wasn't able to play the outfield which is the reason for him not playing in Chicago but now that he can DH, he is in the starting lineup.
