Clayton Kershaw will be placed on a rehab that includes a submaximal throwing program for the next 2-3 weeks. He will then be re-evaluated by Dr. Neal ElAttrache to determine when he can start throwing at increased velocity.
Not the news fantasy owners were hopeful for, but at least you now have a better idea of what is exactly going with the reigning CY Young award winner. Unfortunately "what it looks like" is that Kershaw will be for an extended period of time with the earliest being some time in May.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jake Arrieta shut the Rockies out for four innings on Saturday.
Arrieta had average numbers prior to Saturday's spring training start, but his start against the Rockies showed that he is ready to go. On paper, he isn't the Cubs' ace this season, but he certainly emerged as one of the better starters in the National League. Take Arrieta as a solid number two starter in your fantasy drafts over the next week. Analysis: David Kerr
C.J. Anderson will be the Broncos starting running back entering offseason workouts.
The Broncos have three legitimate starting running backs in Anderson, Montee Ball, and Ronnie Hillman. Given Anderson's success in the latter part of the 2014 season though, it is no surprise that Denver views him as their lead back. He should fit in well to Gary Kubiak's offensive scheme and will vault up fantasy draft boards this summer. Anderson picked up a lot of slack last year while Peyton Manning dealt with a shoulder injury and should be a strong RB1 option this year. Analysis: David Kerr
