The Braves have agreed to terms with outfielder Jason Heyward on a two-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.
Heyward has elite skills, but he's soft and he's been beset by continual injuries leading to roller coaster like efforts from month to month for his career. Reports suggest he'll be paid over $13 million over the next two seasons, so the Braves are banking on Heyward becoming the player that we all know he can be - if he can stay on the field.

Trevor Cahill has secured the final spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
With this news, it is confirmed that Daniel Hudson will start the season out of the team's bullpen. Cahill really struggled last season, but the team believes his revamped mechanics will equate to better success this season. In 17 starts and 14 relief appearances last year, he compiled a rough 5.61 ERA. Starters in Arizona will likely be back-end starters in many fantasy rotations this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
