Another week has gone by and more players find themselves in the infirmary. It is staggering how many injuries there have been thus far. If nothing else, this season has tested your ability to be creative, manipulate the waiver wire, and negotiate trades with your fellow league members. Gotta stay positive! So without further adieu, here is the next 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.
Opening Day is right around the corner as teams start paring down their rosters, and players with numbers resembling wide receivers are getting fewer and far between. As always, injuries play a big factor in determining a player’s status in both real and fantasy baseball. This spring has had its fair share of injuries to significant players, so pay close attention because this could affect your upcoming fantasy baseball drafts. So without further adieu, here is this week’s edition of the walking wounded.
Enough is enough already! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, the injury bug takes however many legs it has and kicks you square in the fantasy groin with each one of them. By the throbbing pain and imminent swelling, I’m guessing it’s atleast a six-legged creature. Losing guys in September is like a nightmare and, to quote pool-shark extraordinaire, Grady Seasons, it just keeps getting worse and worse. Sadly, you’re limited in what you can do at this point and that’s hunt through the waiver wire and hope to find replacements that can help carry your tired and broken lineup to the end. Here’s the latest of what’s going on at MLB Triage…
It's getting harder and harder to keep up with all of the injuries happening around the league these days. It seems like almost every player has some sort of nagging symptoms that keep them out of the lineup for days on end. This is the place to come however for the most up to date and detailed fantasy baseball injury updates. Tonight we will talk about some impact players that are on their way back to the starting lineup and also a few players who won't be on the field anytime soon. Let's get down to business.
The Angels take a short-term hit to their bullpen while the Diamondbacks end up with a good break. Houston and San Francisco can breathe easier after injury scares to each of their top pitchers. Some wounded veterans are continue to fight through some lingering injury issues but are they may finally making some progress? All in this edition of the spring training injury update.
The worries are starting in Philadelphia over their star second baseman along with some slight concern in New York over a surgically repaired knee. Minnesota fans though however are excited that their slugging first baseman is making some real progress from the concussions that cost him half of last season. Then of course, the big trade acquistion for the Brewers will end up missing some starts due to be a little too much competitive fire during a pick-up basketball game.
Some high impact fantasy players are recovering nicely from previous injuries while some other big names are struggling. The Cardinals seemed to have avoided another disaster while the Red Sox are pleased with the progress of their newly acquired slugger. The Los Angeles Angels maybe in the market for a bat while they await their slugger to return. Other promising free agent signings are battling injury and age questions in this installment of the injury updates.
