Dayan Viciedo    OF   Free Agent  (AAA)
Viciedo agreed to a minor league contract with the Blue Jays on Saturday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This makes a lot of sense considering Michael Saunders is slated to miss 4-to-6 weeks with a knee injury, placing his status in doubt for Opening Day. Look for Viciedo to compete for a spot on the Jays' big league roster as an outfielder who can play against lefties, but it is also possible that he spends a good portion of the season at Triple-A. The best way to utilize Viciedo in fantasy would be in daily leagues when he's in the lineup against a southpaw.
Zeke Spruill    P   Boston Red Sox  (AAA)
Spruill, who started and relieved in the Diamondbacks' organization last season, will pitch as a reliever with Boston, the Providence Journal reports.

Troy Tulowitzki    SS   Colorado Rockies
Tulowitzki (hip) is expected to begin running the bases next week, MLB.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Both Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez (knee) have been ruled out for the Rockies' Cactus League opener, but both players have been working out on the field without pain, and manager Walt Weiss said the team has been "very encouraged" by their progress. Tulowitzki has been taking fielding practice -- he was even seen diving for a groundball on Saturday morning -- and there's a chance he could be cleared to run the bases early in the week if all goes well.
Jonathan Pettibone    P   Philadelphia Phillies  (AAA)

Matt Wieters    C   Baltimore Orioles
Wieters (elbow) will be behind the plate for Sunday's intrasquad game, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wieters won't catch in actual spring games until he's cleared to throw at 100 percent around the middle of March, but he will catch in simulated scenarios for the time being. He will begin the process of building his innings behind the plate Sunday, catching two innings, with the hope of being able to catch 5-to-7 frames right away once cleared for Grapefruit League action.
Eugenio Suarez    SS   Cincinnati Reds
