2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: DIGITS CHECKING OUT FOR TODD FRAZIER/CHRIS DAVIS

Fingers have gotten a lot of attention so far in spring training as two mammoth sluggers have been held back by them of all things coming into spring training.  Fortunately for both Chicago White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier and Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, their finger/thumb injuries are healed enough for them to be full spring participants in workouts.  Both guys are among the best pure power hitters in the game and Frazier throws in 15-steal speed as a bonus.  Alas both also do a ton of damage to your team batting average, with both guys going under .230 last season.  While Davis is someone I avoid every year, Frazier's decreased draft price this season has attraction due to his ability to steal some bases and for the fact his dip in average last year was an outlier given his career rates.  Yes he is far from a batting title contender but Frazier is more of a .260 batter then someone who goes under .230.  If you miss out on the top tier third baseman, Frazier is a decent and cost-effective option.
