Senior Fantasy Writer

You don't even have to read anything. We couldn't have made it any easier.

Don't Just Play, Play to Win!
Fantasy Baseball Today Be sure to catch Fantasy Baseball 360 LIVE at 5 p.m. ET every weekday to dominate your Fantasy leagues. Our writers will have the latest news, analysis and roster trends each afternoon.

Needless to say, we're pretty excited about it here, and in anticipation of our premiere on Wednesday, April 4, we decided to put a league together. Novel idea, right?

The cast -- which includes not only me, but Al Melchior, Nando Di Fino and our host Jorge Sedano -- will compete alongside the crew for bragging rights in this 10-team Head-to-Head categorical league. Usually when we say Head-to-Head here at CBSSports.com, we mean Head-to-Head points. In categorical play, each week is like a mini Rotisserie game. Two teams square off in the standard 5x5 categories. The one that fares better in the majority of the categories wins the matchup.

Because contributions like doubles, triples and walks have no influence on the scoring, the evaluation of players is closer to Rotisserie. Then again, because each team starts fewer hitters than a standard Rotisserie format and because the season is reduced from a marathon to a series of short sprints, some of the draft strategies -- such as loading up on pitchers early and avoiding streakier, injury-prone players -- are closer to Head-to-Head.

The hybrid format led to some curious bargains early in the draft, such as usual second-rounders Ian Kinsler, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Justin Upton and Jose Reyes all going in the Round 3.

Of course, playing with only 10 teams likely had something to do with that as well.

Mets P Jon Niese tossed from game while sitting in dugout
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(9:25 pm ET) Mets pitcher Jon Niese was ejected in Friday night's game against the Yankees despite not even being in the game. 

Niese apparently said something in the fifth inning that umpire Doug Eddings wasn't OK with. Eddings then motioned toward the dugout that Niese was ejected from the game. This happened during Juan Lagares' at-bat. 

NJ.com posted a vine of the ejection, with Eddings apparently saying, "Hey, I don't wanna hear anymore from you. That's it. You're gone."


Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez still planning to retire after season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:24 pm ET) Even with the Brewers slow start to the season, veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez is not rethinking his plans to retire after the season, per MLB.com.

"This is going to be my last year, regardless of what happens," Ramirez said. "Regardless of what happens to me and regardless of what happens to the team. That has nothing to do with my decision. I've already made my decision, and this will be my last year."

Ramirez hit his first home run of the season Thursday against the Reds, but he is still batting just .167 through 15 games. 

"It's not working right now," he said, "but all I can do is show up and keep trying."


Blue Jays P Marcus Stroman is going back to school
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(9:20 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman likes to keep himself busy. 

As if rehabbing a torn ACL wasn't going to take up enough time, Stroman has decided to head back to Duke to work on finishing his degree. On May 4, he'll return to campus to rehab his knee and further his studies. 

"My parents pushed me from a very early age to make sure that it was all academics first," Stroman said, via MLB.com. "I was a kid who wasn't allowed out if I wasn't going to work, or I was the kid studying when everyone else was partying. That's something I always try to preach to everyone I'm around, even high school students now, I always try to gear them towards college."

Stroman played three seasons from 2010-2012 with the Blue Devils before entering the draft. The Blue Jays selected him with the 22nd overall pick, giving Duke its first-ever first-round pick in school history.

Stroman tore his ACL during spring training and decided to go back to Duke shortly after. He said he feels ahead of schedule in his recovery right now. 

Stroman went 11-6 with a 3.65 ERA last season.

Phillies don't appear to be in rush to promote Maikel Franco
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:02 pm ET) Phillies third base prospect Maikel Franco is certainly on the radar for a promotion to the majors, as he has begun the season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley with a .355/.403/.565/.968 slash line through 14 games.

However, it doesn't appear the Phillies are in a rush to promote the 22-year-old infielder, per MLB.com.

"We'll see," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday, when asked if he could see Franco sooner rather than later. "There hasn't been much talk about him."


Reds waiting for Sam LeCure to find fastball command
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:58 pm ET) When the Reds sent reliever Sam LeCure to Triple-A Louisville at the end of spring training, they were looking for him to get better command of his fastball. 

LeCure has a 3.68 ERA in five appearances for Louisville this season. It's a positive sign, but the Reds are still waiting to see a change in his fastball. 

"I think he’s doing a nice job of managing the games he’s getting into,” Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. “Our primary focus with Sam when he went to Triple-A was to get the fastball command back. in the second half of last year, it was more challenging for him. It’s such a big pitch – that two-seam sinker, comebacker that he throws. He was able to lean a bit more on the curveball and changeup last year. I think for him to be the impact pitcher he was for us in the past, the fastball command will need to come back in force. And I have not lost any optimism that he’ll be a part of this bullpen here over the course of the season. We certainly miss his influence."


Twins' Tim Stauffer struggling with changeup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:28 pm ET) Twins reliever Tim Stauffer admits that he's not "where I'd like to be at this point in the year," per TwinCities.com.

Through five appearances, Stauffer has a 9.00 ERA.

"I’ve always been a little bit of a slow starter," he said. "Obviously, I don’t want to make any excuses. I’d like to be able to go out there and get in a groove. I really don’t feel like I’ve hit that groove quite yet." 

Stauffer said that his changeup "is still not where I want it to be".

Giants' Bochy on keeping Justin Maxwell in lineup: 'He's earned it'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8:09 pm ET) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell earned his fourth straight start Friday against the Rockies.

He is batting .417 (5 for 12) with one triple, one home run and three RBI in his last four games. He also had the game-winning hit in the 10th inning Thursday against the Dodgers.

"Right now with the way he's playing, he's earned it," manager Bruce Bochy said, per CSN Bay Area. "I like his at-bats, and not just the hit to win the game, but the quality of the at-bats has been very good. I look at the patience he's shown, particularly with two strikes. He's not panicking. He's quiet up there and not expanding the zone. He's keeping his composure up there. He's not chasing."
