Shin-Soo Choo (back spasms) says he feels good, could return to play Saturday. He expects to be ready for Opening Day.
Choo is capable of hitting near .300 with 20-25 homers a year. If he is ready to go, then he should be in the lineup. The possibility he could play Saturday increases his chances of being ready opening day.ANALYST:
Choo will be a very high end option in the OF position this season. There is more of a drop off than people realize on draft day, especially in 5 OF leagues and 12+ teams. Shin-Soo Choo should be targeted in the top 6-7 rounds on draft day in all Mixed League formats and the top 3-4 rounds in NL Only leagues. If he can stay healthy, expect a career year out of the Reds leadoff hitter.ANALYST:
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
