Spring training is in full force and fantasy baseball drafts are popping up everywhere. Of course, injuries can change the entire landscape of a fantasy draft so it is critical that you carefully watch and monitor the progress of players who get hurt during the spring. So without further adieu, let’s delve into this week’s 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.
With pitchers and catchers reporting to camp, spring training is officially underway. As you prepare for your fantasy baseball draft, it is imperative that you closely monitor the status of players who are coming back from injuries. Fortunately, it looks as if J.D. Drew is going to retire from baseball which should save all fantasy baseball writers several hours of their lives from writing about his frequent and bizarre injuries. Hopefully he doesn’t strain his larynx when he officially makes an announcement. That being said, here is a look at some players dealing with injuries and recoveries.
It is now commonplace to see pitchers sustain serious arm injuries, undergo surgery, and come back better than ever in a relatively short amount of time. With modern technology and highly skilled doctors, an arm injury does not mean the end of the road for a modern day pitcher. However, despite numerous success stories of pitchers making successful comebacks, not all of these stories have a happy ending.
With pitchers and catchers set to report to spring training within the next two weeks, fantasy baseball drafts will be starting soon thereafter. In preparation for your draft, it is always a good idea to monitor players who are coming back from injuries that cost them significant time in the previous season. Let’s take a look at ten players who are on the comeback trail and could be potential sleepers in 2012.
Boy, the end is really creeping up fast, isn’t it? We’ve got two full weeks of baseball left and then a half week after that. All done on the 28th of September. Most head to head playoffs should have either wrapped this past week or are about to this week, so if you’re headed into championship week, good luck. Roto league players – you haven’t got much time left. You’re either hanging on for dear life or you’re plotting (read: hoping for) some late season surge to take over the top spot. Whichever way it is, staying on top of the latest injuries is paramount. Here’s a look at the latest news….
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 with the sincerest of apologies to those in weekly leagues that Fantasy Baseball Injury Report was not updated on its usual Sunday, in time for lineups locking on Monday. The holiday weekend schedule seems to have thrown off some schedules here. Hopefully, you were able to continue your road to the championship without too many issues. For those still in need of some updated injury news before our usual Thursday session, we’ve got a special Tuesday edition here, so without any added fanfare, let’s get right to it…
Absolutely astounding how much injury news can accumulate over just a few days, but here we are, just four days removed from the last injury report and the list of players hurt is longer than my…well, it’s pretty long. With some head to head playoffs already begun and more coming up this week, it’s imperative to stay on top of all the action. Roto leagues too, as every little bit of help can be the difference between a top finish and pathetic mediocrity (read: 6th place). No sense in wasting time with more introductory words…let’s get to the infirmary!
Here we are, heading into the final week of August. From there it’s Labor Day weekend and then we’re officially in the final month of the season. This is it, folks! Not only is this the final week before head to head playoffs begin, but it’s the last week before rosters expand on September 1st. Checking the injury report is absolutely vital. You need to know who can legitimately help you for the final month of the season and who may be replaced, whether it’s from someone already rostered or some newbie rook just called up for a taste of the Show. Either way, you need to make sure you are up to date with the latest injury news and that’s what we’re here for today…
