Yordano Ventura died in a car crash in the Dominican Republic on Sunday morning.

The Dominican Republic police have confirmed that Ventura was killed in an auto accident in the early morning hours on Sunday. Ventura was only 25 years old with electric stuff and a bright future.

Anibal Sanchez Headshot

Anibal Sanchez will get a shot at a starting job in Spring Training.

The Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Sanchez will get a chance to be a starter this spring. Sanchez spent most of his 2016 campaign bouncing from the bullpen to the starting rotation. He had a career-worst 5.87 ERA last season and is in the final year of his contract this season.

Preston Tucker Headshot

Preston Tucker (shoulder) said he expects to get cleared in February to partake in all baseball activities for the start of spring training.

Tucker received surgery on his right shoulder in September and has yet to take any swings this offseason. He will visit the doctor in February but feels like he is 95 percent healthy. He is expected to be ready to go for spring training which is good since the Astros added some pieces this offseason. More than likely Tucker will begin 2017 in the minors.

Mike Pelfrey Headshot

Mike Pelfrey will stretch out as a starting candidate in Spring Training.

Pelfrey made 24 appearances (22 starts) for the Tigers in 2016, posting a 5.07 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 4.2 K/9 across 119.0 innings. Those numbers are nothing to brag about, but apparently the team will give him another shot to earn a spot in the rotation going into 2017. Pelfrey's scheduled $8M paycheck for the year could have something to do with that.

Drew Pomeranz Headshot

Drew Pomeranz said Saturday that he had an injection of stem cells into his elbow.

Pomeranz dealt with some elbow soreness in the latter stages of the 2016 season, but the issue has not required surgery to repair, at least not yet. Coming off the best overall season of his career, the 28-year-old lefty is expected to slot into the Boston rotation behind Chris Sale, David Price and Cy Young winner Rick Porcello.

Marcus Stroman Headshot

Marcus Stroman said his surgically repaired left knee feels 100 percent.

This is obviously a positive development for Stroman and the Blue Jays. The team is counting on their young righty to take another step forward after working 204.0 innings across 32 starts in the regular season and following that up with two more starts in the playoffs. Stroman posted a lofty 4.89 ERA and pedestrian 6.4 K/9 before the All-Star break last season, but in the second half of the campaign, he put together a much-improved 3.68 ERA and 8.5 K/9.

Neftali Feliz Headshot

Neftali Feliz is expected to enter the season as the Brewers closer.

Feliz signed with the Brewers just a few days ago and it was no secret that he would likely be the closer heading in to 2017. The bullpen was a big area of need for Milwaukee heading in to the offseason and they certainly needed a closer. Feliz could be a very good value at the RP position in fantasy baseball if you don't draft a stud closer early on.

Ryon Healy Headshot

Ryon Healy will see most of his at-bats at first base and designated hitter in 2017.

Healy has done well hitting at all levels of the minor leagues. He's 25 years old so he's a bit older than your typical prospect, but he hit .305 with just 13 HR's in 72 games last season in the big leagues. If he can string together a full season with Oakland he could play 140+ games and easily get to 25 home runs. He's not a well-known player so he could be a decent value in later rounds.

Steven Wright Headshot

Steven Wright should be ready to go for spring training, but is still rehabbing his right shoulder.

He suffered from bursitis and rotator cuff irritation after pinch running on August 7th. He also is fighting for a rotation spot in spring, with Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Pomeranz his main competition. David Price, Chris Sale and Rick Porcello have locked down the top three rotation spots barring some development to the contrary this spring.

James Loney Headshot

If James Loney isn't on the Rangers big league roster by March 29, he can request his release.

Loney signed a minor league deal with the Rangers on Friday. He spent the latter part of 2016 backing up Lucas Duda with the Mets, getting 366 plate appearances and putting up a slash line of .265/.307/.397. He has no clear role with the Rangers yet, but things could shake out differently in spring training.
