Pitchers are working on their location and getting a feel for their pitches. Hitters are working on their timing and repeating their swing. Even managers are fine tuning a few facets of their game in preparation for the long season, but there is one group of baseball people going unnoticed in preparation for the upcoming season: fantasy baseball players.
Hey, it's spring training for them too.
While the players are working to be as productive as they can be during the regular season, fantasy managers are working hard to make sure they field the best, creatively-named team as humanly possible on Opening Day.
After all, there is far more than bragging rights on the line. Depending on your league, there could be a serious chunk of change at stake this season as well.
The Philadelphia Phillies are a team that many people will find themselves plucking players from for obvious reason. There is a lot of upside on this roster, but don't be fooled—there is a lot of risk as well.
So let this slideshow serve as a primer for draft day. Which member of the Phillies' roster will leave you sitting pretty at the season's end, and which players will have you hanging your head in regret? Who surprises and who disappoints?
Don't be left in the dark on draft day!
