Found March 18, 2013 on Fantasy Baseball Tools:
I get asked this question a lot and my answer never changes from season to season. I don’t really pay attention to spring training stats unless it is for possible rookies with a chance to make the team out of spring training or players that are coming back from injury. Otherwise the spring training stats should really not affect your draft board with a week or two before your fantasy baseball draft or auction.

Ump calls balls and strikes from near mound

During Tuesday's Angels-Brewers game, home plate umpire Seth Buckminster got hit in the hand with a pitch from Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta. The injury was apparently severe enough to force Buckminster to leave the game, and since there are typically only three umpires at Spring Training games, that turned into quite the issue.
