Michael Brantley (shoulder) is scheduled to play in three straight Cactus League games beginning on Tuesday.

It looks to be the last test to see whether Brantley will be ready to play on Opening Day. Things have gone well to this point as Brantley ramps things up. He slugged his first Cactus League home run on Sunday and his surgically-repaired right shoulder has held up. However, the outfielder has ran into problems previously with the shoulder when he played in multiple games in a row. We'll know in a few days whether Brantley will be on the Opening Day roster or will need a little more rehab time. Even if he cracks the roster, fantasy owners should count on him being rested a lot early on.

Billy Witz of the New York Times reports that Jeurys Familia's domestic violence suspension is "almost certain" to be less than the 30 games Aroldis Chapman received.

Familia was arrested in November on a domestic abuse charge in New Jersey after police responded to a call and found Familia's wife, Bianca Rivas, with a scratch on her chest and a bruise on her right cheek. The charge was eventually dismissed. Most assumptions have been that Familia's suspension would likely fall right in line with Chapman's, but Witz writes that Rivas and Familia have cooperated with police and baseball investigators and Rivas has denied that her injuries came from an altercation with Familia. Familila met with Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday and a suspension is expected to be handed down this week. Addison Reed will handle closing duties for the Mets while Familia is away.

Jabari Blash socked his seventh homer of the spring in Monday’s 12-2 victory over the Mariners.

Wil Myers, Ryan Schimpf, and Luis Sardinas also went deep for San Diego. Only Bryce Harper (eight) has hit more home runs than Blash this spring. Greg Bird of the Yankees and Peter O’Brien, who was sent down by the Royals on Monday, have also hit seven. With Alex Dickerson (back) sidelined, Blash should see at least part-time at-bats in left field to begin the season.

Wil Myers stayed hot on Monday by slugging a two-run homer against the Mariners.

It was his third homer of the spring. While the Padres could be the worst team in the majors this year, Myers appears primed for another big season. He's hitting .385/.492/.692 with three homers and three steals over 20 games during Cactus League action. He’s aiming for a 40-40 season, but fantasy owners would be thrilled with anything close to that.

Carter Capps (elbow) struggled in his Cactus League debut Monday against the Mariners, retiring just one batter while giving up one run on two hits and two walks.

Capps threw just 10 out of his 23 pitches for strikes. He walked in a run before being pulled from the game. Capps has the potential to be an impact late-inning arm for San Diego this season, but he might need some more seasoning as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Yovani Gallardo was hit hard for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Padres.

Gallardo allowed nine hits, with three of them leaving the yard. His spring ERA now sits at 9.24, but the Mariners acquired him over the winter with the idea of plugging him in their rotation. That’s not going to change now, but fortunately most fantasy owners have more appealing alternatives to choose from.

Delino DeShields went 2-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base, and a run scored in Monday’s 6-5 win over the Rockies.

DeShields is now up 12 steals on the spring to go along with .302 batting average and a .448 on-base percentage. The 24-year-old is coming off a disappointing 2016 where he spent time in the minors and batted just .209/.275/.313 over 74 games in the majors, but there’s opportunity in left field. He could be a sneaky speed option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Greg Holland allowed two runs on three hits in one inning of work Monday against the Rangers.

While Holland struck out two in the frame, he allowed a single, a double, and a triple and also let in a run on a wild pitch which occurred on a third strike. He needed 27 pitches to get through the frame. The plan calls for Holland to pitch again on Tuesday, which would mark the first time this spring that he has appeared in back-to-back games. He’s looking like the favorite to begin the year as the closer, so obviously it’s a big test for him.
