Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') will start the season on the disabled list with an Achilles' injury that has kept him out the last two weeks. Brown will be the designated hitter in a minor league game Tuesday, March 31, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., and the Phillies are expecting Brown to miss more than just the opening week of the season. OFs Grady Sizemore, Jeff Francoeur, Jordan Danks and Darin Ruf are candidates to start in right field in place of Brown.
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a post-hype prospect that just hasn't put it together yet in Philly. He hit only .235 with 10 home runs and 63 RBI in 2014, meaning he probably wasn't on many fantasy owners' radars. Now that he's injury, he's not a candidate to be drafted in deep mixed leagues. Sizemore seems like the best bet to see the most playing time in Brown's absence, but Philadelphia could easily go with a platoon in right field, too.

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain. OF Jordan Danks was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Danks, Leury Garcia and Moises Sierra should see a boost in playing time, but none of them are worth rostering outside of AL-only leagues. Eaton's season could be over as it's usually a four-to-six week injury to return from.

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (shoulder) will have season-ending surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He's been placed on the 15-day disabled list, and OF Jordan Danks was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Dayan Viciedo, who is safe for consistent playing time for the forseeable future. Look to add him in deep mixed leagues if you need outfield insurance. Danks should also have the opportunity for decent PT, making him an immediate target in AL-only setups.
