    Gurriel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's game against the Mets.

    Impact

    The homer was Gurriel's first of what has been a stellar spring. He started out hot and hasn't let up, posting a .371 average and 1.036 OPS over 35 at-bats. Manager AJ Hinch plans to move him around the infield, much as did last season, so Gurriel may bring position versatility to fantasy lineups. His bat doesn't profile as powerful as a traditional corner infielder, but he'll be helpful for roster construction if he's qualified at middle infield (15 starts at 2B in 2018).

    News

    Gurriel went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's game against Washington.

    Impact

    Gurriel knocked home a run in the first inning on a double to left field. He's already collected six hits so far this spring in 11 at-bats. Gurriel slotted in as the starting third baseman Sunday, and he should continue to see time at the hot corner and at second base throughout spring training and into the regular season, although his primary position will remain first base.
