Atlanta Braves SP Brandon Beachy (biceps) had "discomfort" in his right biceps Monday, March 10, and was unable to locate his pitches. Beachy's velocity was also down Monday, and he said that he's already attempted to ramp up his velocity this spring.
FANTASY TIP: Beachy is fully removed from TJS surgery, but clearly, health issues remain. He also had cleanup surgery on his right elbow in the offseason. Atlanta's rotation could now be in dire straights if Beachy and Kris Medlen (forearm) are out for the long term. That would put both David Hale and Freddy Garcia in line to open the season in the rotation as replacements.

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Dee Gordon is traveling with the team tomorrow and 2B Alexander Guerrero is not, which could be a sign that Gordon is winning the competition to start at second base.
FANTASY TIP: With everyday playing time Gordon could be a real sleeper, at least in NL-only leagues. He'll need to make better contact and take more walks, though, but his speed remains his best asset. Guerrero is a huge risk in deep mixed leagues, especially since he took the entire year off in 2013.

The New York Jets officially released WR Santonio Holmes Monday, March 10.
FANTASY TIP: Holmes has been a shell of his former self the past several seasons due to foot and hamstring ailments. Depending on what team he latches on with, he could provide WR depth in deep leagues.
