As I started writing about Alex Rodriguez on this week’s Injury Report, I received a voicemail from Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman telling me to shut the f*** up. Ok that didn’t really happen, but A-Rod is included in the Week 14 edition of the Walking Wounded.
In a season marred with significant injuries to big time players, it is refreshing to report some good news regarding the return of some of these players. If you have been able to tread water and withstand the loss of some of these players in your fantasy league, then getting them back will be equivalent to pulling off a blockbuster trade. So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
Beware if you are a third baseman. They seem to be dropping like flies as some big names have gone down with serious injuries. Another week has gone by and more fantasy baseball rosters are in flux. This is why it is so important for you to scour the waiver wire and accumulate depth on your roster because injuries can happen at any time. 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.
It seems like every single day there is another injury to a big name fantasy baseball player. It also appears to be going by position as we've already seen a couple third basemen go down followed by an outfield banishment and then a handful of starting pitchers who have been sent for MRI's and further evaluation. This week it is closers who are in danger as Jose Contreras and Neftali Feliz have already gone on the disabled list due to arm injuries. So, let's take a spin around the league and get an update on who is out, who is down and who is coming back real soon.
How bad is the injury to a first round fantasy pick? Did the Pirates lose a starter for an extended peroid of time? A lesser known commidity also fell victim to an incident at second base while a collision at third base has cost a Toronto infielder some time. A possible waiver addition also loses some steam when he tweaks a knee. All of this in this edition of the Fantasy Alarm injury report.
Will an Angels injury allow a once promising prospect to get another a chance? The Blue Jays and the Brewers look to get one of their best starters back. The Cubs lose not just one but two starters to injuries in first starts. Tampa Bay loses their best player for at least 3 weeks. The Rockies watch their ace get rocked then have to throw him on the DL while the White Sox lose their newly acquired slugger. All in this edition of the Fantasy Alarm injury report.
