Freddie Freeman belted a three-run home run and added a walk in four plate appearances of Wednesday's win over the Marlins.
The home run was Freeman's 14th of the season but was just his first in the month of July after hitting 13 over the previous three months. It seems like every season "experts" are expecting a surge in Freeman's power totals but it appears he is on pace for another low to mid 20 home run season with a solid batting average. Still just 24 years old there is plenty of time for Freeman to find that power stroke fantasy owners believe he is capable of displaying. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
The home run was Freeman's 14th of the season to go with 56 RBI, 66 runs scored, and a slash line of .284/.375/.479. In comparison, Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo has 25 home runs 55 RBI and 68 runs scored.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
