2021 FANTASY BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING WRAPUP: SATURDAY.

 -It is nothing but a minor hamstring strain suffered by Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Luis Urias and he should be back in action in the next few days.  Considered a top prospect not all that long ago, Urias has scuffled so far at the major league level.  That being said, he remains an upside late round grab who could yield some decent value if he catches playing time.

-Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto has had no setbacks in his rehab from a broken thumb and is expected to be in the lineup for Opening Day.  Realmuto was the first big injury of spring training but the consensus top fantasy baseball catcher by a mile should be ready to go when the games count.  

-Houston Astros pitcher Framber Valdez has a very murky immediate future after suffering a broken finger in his last spring outing.  Surgery is not recommended at this point but it figures to be awhile before we see the interesting high-K pitcher in fantasy baseball.  

-Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb had a possible COVID exposure that will keep him away from the team until he passes some tests.  He remains a terrible control pitcher whose decent K rate has been overshadowed by the free passes.

-New York Mets ace Jacob DeGrom threw two scoreless frames in his first spring outing and he hit 100 on the radar gun.  DeGrom struck out three and was named the team's Opening Day starter.

-The news was not so great for top Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic who was diagnosed with a strained abductor muscle in his knee.  No word has been given on how long he will be out but it may keep him down on the farm until May as opposed to mid-April once his Super 2 status was reached.
