    • Miller cut by Phillies

      News: reports that the Phillies re-assigned 16 players to minor league camp on Friday. Among the players re-assigned were: right-handers Brian Bass, Eddie Bonine, Andrew Carpenter and Michael Schwimer; left-hander Ryan Feierabend; catcher Joel Naughton; infielders Tagg Bozied and Robb Quinlan; and outfielder Matt Miller.
      Analysis: Miller batted .325 with 10 homers and 81 RBI in 136 games for Triple-A Colorado Springs last season but at age 28, he has yet to reach the majors. Since he will likely spend most of 2011 down on the farm, continue to ignore the Texas State alum in all Fantasy formats.
    • Young among Rockies' latest cuts

      News: The Rockies optioned second baseman Eric O. Young Jr. to Triple-A Colorado Springs and reassigned catcher Paul Phillips, outfielders Jay Payton, Cole Garner and Matt J. Miller and infielders Omar Quintanilla and Michael Paulk to minor league camp Tuesday.
      Analysis: Young is a burner who could impact deeper Rotisserie leagues with his steals potential down the road. These other players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
    • Miller hits first spring homer

      News: Rockies outfielder Matt J. Miller hit a three-run homer Saturday against the Brewers. He finished 1 for 1 with a walk. Miller is 6 of 13 with five RBI this spring.
      Analysis: Despite playing very well up to this point, we don't expect Miller to make the team out of spring training. He can be ignored on Draft Day.
    • Rockies announce more spring invites

      News: The Rockies have announced the following non-roster invitations to spring training: pitchers Christian Friedrich, Craig Baker, Andrew Graham, Andrew Johnston and Juan Rincon; catchers Jordan Pacheco and Wilin Rosario; infielders Jonathan Herrera, Darin Holcomb, Jeff Kindel, Michael Paulk and Omar Quintanilla; and outfielders Chris Frey, Cole Garner and Matt J. Miller.
      Analysis: Friedrich is an elite pitching prospect, while Rosario is an intriguing catcher prospect and the outfielders have some long-term potential, too. We don't expect any of these players to make the team out of spring training at this point.
    • Rockies cut 12 from spring camp

      News: The Rockies reassigned LHP Cedrick Bowers, RHPs Matt Daley and Brandon Hynick, C Michael McKenry and OF Matt J. Miller to minor league camp Monday. They optioned RHPs Samuel Deduno and Shane Lindsay to Double-A Tulsa, SS Hector Gomez to Class A Modesto and RHPs Jason Hirsh, Ryan Mattheus, Steven Register and 2B Eric Young Jr. to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
      Analysis: Hirsh was a candidate for the rotation, but he will have to prove healthy and effective in Triple-A for the first half of this season. Young has great steals potential, but he doesn't figure to be a factor in Fantasy leagues this season. The rest of these players is nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues right now.
    • Rockies announce some spring invites

      News: The Colorado Rockies invited RHP Jhoulys Chacin, 3B Christian Colonel, OF Chris Frey, RHP Brandon Hynick, C Michael McKenry and OF Matt J. Miller to spring training. Also, they signed C Sal Fasano to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
      Analysis: Chacin is an elite pitching prospect who should impact all Fantasy leagues this season. Watch him closely this spring and in the first half. The rest figure to have too limited of roles to help in any Fantasy format if they make it up on the roster this season.
    • Red Sox hand out spring invites

      News: The Red Sox invited RHP Michael Bowden, RHP Lee Gronkiewicz, LHP Hunter Jones, RHP Dan Kolb, RHP Justin Masterson, LHP Jon Switzer, LHP Michael Tejera, C Kevin Cash, 1B Jeff Bailey, 3B Keith Ginter, 2B Tony Granadillo, SS Jed Lowrie, 2B Joe Thurston and SS Gil Velazquez to spring training. Also, Red Sox outfielder Matt Miller signed a minor league contract.
      Analysis: Lowrie, Bowden and Masterson are elite prospects worth considering in long-term keeper leagues. All of these other players are nothing more than organizational depth or reserves in the deepest of AL-only leagues if they make the team out of spring training. Ignore them on Draft Day.
    • Matt J. Miller to join Indians soon

      News: Manager Eric Wedge said the Indians will call up an unspecified number of players from Triple-A Buffalo in the next few days. Among the candidates are LHPs Cliff Lee and Jeremy Sowers, RHPs Edward Mujica and Matt Miller and OF Ben Francisco.
      Analysis: Miller is nothing more than a middle reliever for the deepest of AL-only leagues when he's in the majors.
    • Rockies cut some big-time prospects

      News: The Rockies optioned infielders Jonathan Herrera and Jayson Nix, and outfielder Jeff Salazar to the minors. Infielders Joe Koshansky and Ian Stewart, and outfielders Sean Barker, Matt Miller, and Seth Smith, were all reassigned to minor-league camp.
      Analysis: Stewart and Koshansky are two of the best corner infield prospects in baseball. Consider them in all long-term keeper leagues. Nix and Salazar are more like ex-prospects, but they're still young enough they could rebound and be midseason call-up candidates. The others have no redeeming features to be worth considering on Draft Day.
