FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: JOSE DeLEON TO HIGHLIGHT BRIAN DOZIER PACKAGE FROM DODGERS

The Los Angeles Dodgers will trade top pitching prospect Jose DeLeon to the Minnesota Twins in the expected deal for second baseman Brian Dozier.  The Twins and Dodgers remain engaged on what the rest of the package will contain before officially completing a deal.

Analysis: DeLeon is a big price to pay but Dozier proved in 2016 he is the real deal in terms of serving as a top slugging second baseman.  The fact Dozier can hit 30-40 home runs at an offensively barren position like second base is huge and his fantasy baseball value wouldn't change much at all moving from Minny to L.A. in terms of ballpark.  Meanwhile DeLeon is a big-time sleeper for 2017 as he has strikeout stuff that points to him being a future ace.
