PHOENIX -- Matt Lindstrom, the newest Diamondback, got a good look at the D-backs last season and liked what he saw. The feeling might not have been mutual.

Tulowitzki could soon be back in Rockies lineup

Josh Rutledge Took A Big Step

I love finding players on the waiver wire and watching their ownership percentage grow. It’s one of the best parts about fantasy sports for me.
