FANTASY BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING THURSDAY WRAPUP: RYAN BRAUN HOMERS FIRST AT-BAT

Spring training games are now underway as we already have some numbers to talk about.  Let's get right to it.
 
-Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun got his redemption tour off on the right foot Thursday as he homered in his first at-bat.  Typical.  Good early sign for Braun but he has a ton to prove as far as keeping his previous numbers now that he should be clean from 'roids.  I told you all to avoid this potential mess and one meaningless spring game won't change my tune.  Just too much unknown here for a guy who will go in Round 2.
 
-Speaking of home runs, Prince Fielder launched his first of the spring and first in a Texas uniform.  Fielder will be swatting a ton of home runs this season now that he goes from one of the worst hitting parks in the game to one of the best.  A run at 40 homers is absolutely realistic and Fieler deserves late first round consideration. 
 
-Jason Heyward hit a home run Thursday out of the leadoff spot which is where he is slated to remain once the season gets underway.  Heyward hit his best out of the number 1 spot the second half of last season and will score a ton of runs being up there.  However he still has sizable holes in his swing he has to iron out and his health is also a question mark.  A low end outfielder 2.
 
-Four strikeouts in two innings for Yu Darvish who will likely lead the game in K's this season once again.  What a monster he has turned into and Darvish absolutely is a top five pitcher.
