    • Duncan agrees on minors deal

      News: The Rockies have agreed with infielder Eric Duncan on a minor league contract, according to MLB.com. The former Yankees prospect spent 2010 in the Braves' organization, hitting .266 with eight home runs and 64 RBI at Double-A Mississippi.
      Analysis: Duncan is 26 now, and he has yet to succeed in the upper minors. He could surface in Colorado in a utility role, but even if he does, he has minimal Fantasy value at most.
    • Braves give 1B Duncan minor deal

      News: The Braves signed first baseman Eric Duncan to a minor league contract.
      Analysis: Duncan is nothing more than organizational depth at this point in his career. Ignore him in all Fantasy leagues.
    • Yankees send four to minor leagues

      News: The Yankees assigned catchers Jesus Montero and Austin Romine and infielders Eric Duncan and Eduardo Nunez to their minor league camp.
      Analysis: These four are either organizational depth or too far down the system to make an impact yet. Either way, none deserves consideration in Fantasy at this point.
    • Yankees hand out spring invites

      News: The Yankees signed C Jason Brown, 2B Bernie Castro, RHP Dan Giese, UTL Nick Green, LHP Heath Phillips, OF Gregory Porter, SS Cody Ransom, RHP Darrell Rasner, RHP Scott Strickland, LHP Billy Traber and 3B Marcos Vechionacci to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training. They also invited farm hands C Kyle Anson, OF Justin Christian, OF Colin Curtis, 1B Eric Duncan, OF Brett Gardner, RHP Alan Horne, OF Austin Jackson, RHP Steven Jackson, RHP Daniel McCutchen, RHP Mark Melancon, C Jesus Montero, C P.J. Pilittere, C Austin Romine and OF Jose Tabata to spring training.
      Analysis: All of the minor league signees are nothing more than organizational depth at this point in their careers and can be ignored in all Fantasy formats. The list of farm hands does include some top prospects, including Austin Jackson and Jose Tabata. Consider them the most intriguing long-term keeper candidates.
    • Yankees reassign eight to minors

      News: MLB.com reports the Yankees have reassigned RHP Steven Jackson, Jeff Kennard and Kevin Whelan, IF Eric Duncan, Alberto Gonzalez and Juan Miranda, and OF Brett Gardner and Jose Tabata to minor league camp.
      Analysis: Jackson has not played in the majors yet and hasn't pitched above Double-A. Now that he is in the Yankees organization, he could be someone to target as a long-term keeper. Tabata is a teenage outfield phenom, while Duncan is a former prospect who will wait in the Triple-A wings until he finds consistency at the plate. Gonzalez is a decent shortstop prospect who won't get much of a chance with the Yankees in the near future. The rest are not expected to make a Fantasy impact in 2007. Ignore them on Draft Day outside of the deepest of long-term keeper leagues.
    • E. Duncan looking to start in '08?

      News: Back injuries contributed to Eric Duncan's forgettable 2006 season, which included a demotion from Triple-A. Yet there are people in the organization who believe the 21-year-old converted third baseman could compete for the Yankees' starting first base job in 2008.
      Analysis: Duncan will wait in the Triple-A wings until he finds consistency at the plate. Consider him in larger AL-only leagues -- especially in keeper play because of his young age.
    • Yankees hand out spring invites

      News: The Yankees invited INF Andy Cannizaro, SS Angel Chavez, C Raul Chavez, RHP Tyler Clippard, C Ben Davis, 1B Eric Duncan, OF Brett Gardner, RHP Phil Hughes, RHP Steven Jackson, INF Ramiro Pena, RHP Ross Ohlendorf, C Peter Pilittere, C Todd Pratt, C Omir Santos, OF Jose Tabata, INF Marcos Vechionacci, RHP Kevin Whelan, and RHP Steven White to spring training.
      Analysis: Hughes and Clippard are two of the Yankees best pitching prospects, more intriguing than Ohlendorf, who was acquired in the Randy Johnson trade. Tabata is a teenage outfield phenom, while Duncan is a former prospect who will wait in the Triple-A wings until he finds consistency at the plate. Pratt is a former big league backup catcher. All of the other players are nothing more than minor leaguers to ignore on Draft Day.
    • Eric Duncan going to AFL

      News: The Yankees are sending the following players to the Arizona Fall League: J.B. Cox, Sean Henn, Jeff Kennard, Darrell Rasner, Eric Dunan and Brett Gardner.
      Analysis: He won't have any Fantasy value in 2007 if he remains with the Yankees.
    • Eric Duncan having tough time

      News: Eric Duncan is struggling at Triple-A Columbus, hitting .209 with no homers and six RBI through 110 at-bats.
      Analysis: Duncan remains the top hitting prospect in the N.Y. Yankees organization, but he needs to pick up his game before he's worthy of consideration in anything outside of deep AL-only keeper leagues.
