The 30-year-old has also dealt with right elbow neuritis in camp and has played in just three games, going 2-for-9 with a double, four RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases in 11 plate appearances. Speed is probably Slater's biggest asset in deep-mixed and NL-only leagues, but he'll have limited upside in an outfield platoon role against left-handed pitching.

The expectation is that Slater should be fine going forward, but he might miss a few days due to this calf injury. He doesn't have great upside in terms of fantasy value, but could be worth a look in NL-only formats because of his speed.
