Description: Michael Martinez was expected to get the bulk of the play while Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is sidelined with his knee problem, but Martinez broke his right foot and will be out 6-to-8 weeks.
Insight: The injuries to Martinez and Utley may force the Phillies to use Ty Wigginton at second base along with youngster Freddy Galvis and John Mayberry and Jim Thome at first for injured Ryan Howard. The Phillies makeshift lineup is likely to struggle to score runs - beware of relying too much on your Philadelphia players until the "regular" lineup is back on the field.

Description: Martinez, a Rule 5 pick from the Nationals system, could get a chance this spring to win the backup center field job behind Shane Victorino
Insight: Martinez currently projects as a middle infielder but is viewed as a strong and versatile defender. Martinez will have to prove fantasy worth before we pay him too much attention, but playing a multitude of positions will certainly help. Martinez must stay on the active roster all year or be made available back to the Nationals as part of Rule 5 regulations. (RapidDraft.com)
