1B | Gaby Sanchez | Pittsburgh Pirates | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy

Second Baseman

The New York Yankees are expected to meet with the agents for free-agent 2B Robinson Cano (Yankees) to inform them the team will only keep their best offer on the table for a certain amount of time.

2B | Kolten Wong | St. Louis Cardinals | Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said there has been a lot of talk about putting SS Jhonny Peralta at third base and trading 2B Kolten Wong. There is no truth to that. He said a goal this offseason was to find a way to get Wong playing time.

Cs Blake Swihart and Christian Vazquez are in the minor-league system and give the team long-term strength at the position.


Outfielder

OF | Alex Dickerson | San Diego Padres | Fantasy
San Diego Padres 1B/OF Alex Dickerson will be an outfielder moving ahead, according to general manager Josh Byrnes. Dickerson played first base in the past in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization. "We think he can really hit," Byrnes said Monday, Nov. 25. "We spent a lot of time on him in the (2011) draft. I know he's worked hard on his defense, which was a question coming out of college."
