Well, outside of an addition or two, there has not been many changes to the injury report.

Typically, we will not see legitimate updates in terms of their opening day status until later in Spring Training.

As Spring Training gets in high gear and Fantasy drafts start taking place, it is vital to know who is injured and how long they will be out. Especially before you start your draft.

The injury report will detail the injury, when you can expect them to return and other important information.

The injury report will not include players that will miss the entire 2017 Fantasy Baseball season. I will also not be discussing players that have nicks and bruises that are out a game or two, but will be ready for opening day.

Well, let’s get to it shall we.
