Derek Jeter said he is "feeling great" and has no concerns about his health or his left ankle heading into the season. But he declined to talk about his retirement, repeating several times that he'll do so on Wednesday.
Jeter played in just 17 games last season, but prior to that he had played in 150-plus games in eight of the nine previous seasons. Drafting him as your starting shortstop in fantasy may be risky, but if his ADP does not catch too much helium from those who may have some nostalgic connections to one of the all-time Yankee greats, as he approaches his farewell season, drafting him to fill your middle infield position could help balance the health risk associated with a player who will turn 40-years old in June and his coming off a season where he endured multiple injuries.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Carlos Rodon will take the injured Chris Sale's Cactus League start on Friday.
Rodon, the team's top prospect and 14th-overall prospect in baseball, will start in place of Chris Sale who fractured his right foot in an accident at his home. Rodon is a sleeper to take Sale's spot in the rotation while he deals with this issue, but those in dynasty leagues need to be aware of Rodon's immense fantasy potential. He is going to be a force in fantasy in the near future, but it most likely won't be in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
Jose Iglesias was able to run the bases Sunday and said he felt fine.
Iglesias will play one inning for the Tigers in their opener tomorrow against Florida Southern. He will start at shortstop and will hold down the two spot in the lineup. Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season with stress fractures in each of his legs. Iglesias is an incredible defender who will strengthen the Detroit defense as a whole. If he proves he is healthy, Iglesias can be a serviceable fantasy option as he did hit .303 back in 2013 for Boston and Detroit. Analysis: Colby Conway
