Julius Peppers has agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers on a 3-year deal.
The Packers defense was in desperate need of a pass rusher and Peppers fits the bill. He has slowed down over the last few seasons, but he still has plenty of gas left in the tank to be a solid contributor for the Cheasehead Nation and fantasy owners alike.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
CC Sabathia will pitch in a minor league game Sunday.
With this start, it is unlikely that CC will be the opening day starter for the Yankees this year (as he would either have to miss his final Spring training appearance, or go on short rest to make the opening day start). This would be the first year since Sabathia joined the Yankees in 2009 that another pitcher would get the opening day start, with Masahiro Tanaka being the likely recipient of that honor.

White Sox place RHP Nate Jones (elbow) on the 60-day disabled list.
After missing almost four months of the 2014 season recovering from back surgery, Jones tore his ulnar collateral ligament which required reconstructive surgery on his elbow back in July of 2014. It's possible that Jones could re-join the White Sox bullpen this year at some point, but, with no chance of becoming the team's Closer, he has no fantasy value regardless. Analysis: Brad Costilo
White Sox have claimed Kyle Drabek of waivers from the Blue Jays.
In December of 1999, Kyle Drabek, who was drafted in the first round of the 2006 draft by Philadelphia, was the main piece that the Phillies sent to the Blue Jays in exchange for Cy-Young winning pitcher Roy Halladay. Since then, Drabek has failed to live up to his potential, posting an 8-15 record along with a 5.27 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 118-to-111 strikeout to walk ratio in 172 1/3 innings pitched from 2010-2014. Clearly, the White Sox aren't ready to give up on the 27-year-old, once highly-touted, pitcher. Analysis: Brad Costilo
Marlins send Scott Sizemore to minor league camp.
Aside from his misleadingly solid 2009 minor-league season, in which Sizemore hit .308 with 17 home-runs and 21 stolen bases in 130 games, there really haven't been any reasons to believe that he is capable of being a fantasy impact player. Regardless of whether or not Sizemore gets called back up the the MLB-level, feel free to leave him on your league's waiver-wire. Analysis: Brad Costilo
Manager John Farrell projects that Koji Uehara (hamstring) will next pitch in a game on Monday, either in a Grapefruit League contest or in the Minors.
After an almost unfathomably dominant 2013, in which he posted a 1.09 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, 21 saves, 13 holds, and only 3 blown saves, Uehara came back to earth in 2014 (2.52 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 26 saves, one hold, and five blown saves). While Uehara has shown that he's capable of being an elite closer, it's very likely that his 2015 stat-line will be similar to his 2014 line (which was still solid). Analysis: Brad Costilo
Manager Ryan Sandberg says Domonic Brown's (Achilles) rehab is coming along "slowly" and is unlikely for Opening Day.
Brown was one of the bigger disappointments of the 2014 fantasy baseball season, following up a .272, 27 home-run, 83 RBI 2013 with a .235, 10 home-run, 63 RBI 2014 (despite playing 5 more games in 2014). This massive regression has resulted in Brown being taken at an Average Draft Position of 328th overall (which is very low for a player who's only a year and-a-half removed from a 27 home-run season), and that was before the start of his season was considered to be in jeopardy. Do yourself a favor, and look elsewhere for your late-round diamond-in-the-rough pick. Analysis: Brad Costilo
