Rockies' Ian Desmond says he'll play mostly left field in 2018

Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond says that he expects to play mostly left field in 2018.

What It Means:

"I will be ready to play first base if they need me to," Desmond said on Sunday, "but right now, from what I understand it’s going to be mostly left field." Desmond only started 22 games at first base in 2017, so this isn't a big surprise with the Rockies looking to Ryan McMahon to be the main first baseman this season.

Desmond averaged 8.9 FanDuel points per game in 2017.

Jason Vargas passes physical, new deal with Mets is official

New York Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas passed his physical, and his two-year, $16 million contract with a club option for 2020 is official.

What It Means:

Vargas started out hot last season, but he quickly fell off a cliff in the second half, with a 6.38 ERA over his final 15 starts. The Mets are hoping he can reclaim some of that first half magic in the back half of their rotation.

Vargas averaged 27.0 FanDuel points per game this season.

Report: Yasmani Grandal could be Dodgers' primary catcher in 2018

Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal "appears positioned as the primary backstop" this season according to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times.

What It Means:

Austin Barnes and Grandal are battling it out for catching duties, but manager Dave Roberts said on Friday that Grandal "obviously had more opportunities, more at-bats, more playing time [in 2017]— and I see that again." Barnes should still see plenty of time in the lineup. He appeared in 102 games in 2017 with 262 plate appearances and 49 starts behind the plate compared to Grandal, who started 113 games at catcher last year for LA.

Grandal averaged 8.2 FanDuel points per game in 2017.

Eduardo Nunez passes Red Sox physical, officially under contract

The Boston Red Sox have officially signed infielder Eduardo Nunez to a one-year, $4 million contract, with a $4 million player option for 2019.

What It Means:

The Red Sox have the option to buy Nunez out of his player option for $2 million in 2019, but he could also gain an additional $2 million if he hits some incentives. Nunez should be the Sox' full time second baseman until Dustin Pedroia (knee) returns from injury. After that, Nunez should be used as a super utility man off the bench.

Nunez averaged 10.8 FanDuel points per game in 2017.

Rays designate Corey Dickerson for assignment

The Tampa Bay Rays have designated outfielder Corey Dickerson for assignment.

What It Means:

After the team acquired C.J. Cron from the Angels, they needed to make room on the 40-man roster, and Dickerson was the guy to get shown the door. However, he should not be out of a job long, as multiple teams are already rumored to have interest.

Dickerson averaged 9.9 FanDuel points per game in 2017.
