Another week and another slew of injuries. This week’s list contains some repeat offenders which means that you should have already been on notice of how susceptible they are to injury. Sure, anyone can sustain a freak injury. But there are some players that have a history of maladies which makes them inherent risks to draft and rely upon thereafter. Basically, you assumed the risk when you drafted some of these guys. Don’t blame them…blame yourselves. So without further adieu, here is the Week 5 edition of the Walking Wounded.
It is now time to say those three words that baseball fans love more than anything during the cold and snowy winter – pitchers and catchers. Spring training is upon us as we continue analyzing and evaluating players coming back from serious injuries or missed time in 2012. We have spent the past several weeks looking at players such as Carl Crawford, Victor Martinez, Jose Bautista, and Roy Halladay. Now let’s turn our attention to a relief pitcher whose comeback could provide great value in the always volatile saves category. So without further adieu, here is the fifth installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
As February begins, we can start to imagine the snow and ice thawing as pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Hope springs eternal for all MLB teams, as well as fantasy owners. We have spent the past several weeks looking at some players who were coming back after serious injuries from 2012, including Carl Crawford, Victor Martinez, and Jose Bautista. Now let’s take a look at a former multiple time Cy Young award winner who missed some time in 2012 and is looking to rebound from a sub-par season (for his standards). So without further adieu, here is the fourth installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
The calendar is about to turn to February and pitchers and catchers will be reporting within a couple weeks. We will soon get a chance to see several players coming back from serious injuries and get a better sense on how well recovered they are and whether their fantasy baseball value will return to pre-injury status. After profiling Carl Crawford and Victor Martinez, this week’s column will focus on former homerun champion Jose Bautista. Joey Bats was a bona fide top ten pick the past couple years, but a serious wrist injury has cast some doubt as to his capabilities. So without further adieu, here is the third installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
Happy and healthy new year to everyone. Speaking of healthy, this marks the return of the weekly Fantasy Baseball Injury Report for Fantasy Alarm. Pitchers and catchers are set to report within a month and the World Baseball Classic is also around the corner. Now is the time to start preparing for your upcoming drafts or making decisions on which players you want to keep in dynasty leagues. Some of these decisions are no-brainers, but others are a little trickier. For the next several weeks, I will be profiling players who were injured for a majority of 2012 and will likely be making a comeback at some point in 2013. So without further adieu, here is the first installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
Happy holidays to everyone as we celebrate America’s birthday. Nothing is more American than baseball, especially fantasy baseball. This week is no different than any other week with big names getting banged up and wreaking havoc on fantasy teams. Because of the holidays, travel, and other commitments, I am limited with time this week. So without further adieu, here is a truncated edition of the walking wounded.
Who knew it was so dangerous to be a closer for a major league baseball team? Just about half of the teams in the league have switched closers either due to injury or ineffectiveness. In the past week, a couple more went down. Pretty soon, you could send your resume to your favorite team’s general manager because teams are running out of ninth inning options. So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
Spring training games have begun and the start of the season is only a few weeks away. As is the case every year, star players typically use this time to work on their timing and mechanics as opposed to worrying about the accumulation of statistics. But when spring injuries flare up, it can have a lasting effect because it delays players’ ability to work out the kinks before the season starts. There are several big names on the injury report this week which could impact your fantasy baseball draft. So without further adieu, let’s delve into this week’s edition of the walking wounded.
While the impending MLB trade deadline has fantasy owners on the edge of their seats, the injuries continue to pile up, making the end of July one of the more anxiety-filled times of the year. Having players move around from team to team isn’t always the ideal, but atleast they’re still playing. But when your guys go down this late into the season, especially those that have helped carry your team this far, it’s always troubling. Here’s a look at what’s been going on since the last MLB Injury Report…
We’re just a few days into the unofficial second half and already we’re seeing a few dings and dents. You’d like to think that time off for the All Star Break would have given these guys a chance to build up their strength and stamina, but the injury bug is a sneaky, little creature and strikes without warning. Fortunately, this early on, the damage isn’t too severe, but let’s take a look at some of the latest injuries around MLB that are affecting fantasy rosters everywhere.
