Finally, baseball is back. After what felt like the never-ending spring training because of the World Baseball Classic, we finally have games that mean something. The 2013 season is officially underway which means it is time to start worrying which one of your players is the next to get admitted to the infirmary. We are only a few days into the season and injuries are mounting already. So without further adieu, here is the first 2013 regular season edition of the Walking Wounded.
The weekly Injury Report is supposed to cover players from all Major League Baseball teams. However, it feels as though this has become a New York Yankees blog since several of these articles have focused on the Bronx Bombers. Well why stop now? With Opening Day just a few weeks away and drafts taking place every day, it is absolutely critical that you plan accordingly when strategizing how to value players on the shelf. So without further adieu, here is the eighth installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
For the past six weeks, we have taken a look at several star players who missed significant time during the 2012 season because of injury and were making their way back for 2013. We will deviate from that theme this week because we have suffered spring training’s first fantasy baseball casualty after just a couple days. This injury will affect many fantasy drafts, so its significance should not be downplayed. So without further adieu, here is the seventh installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
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.
We are now less than a month away from spring training which means fantasy baseball draft season will be heating up real soon. As you make your preparations and strategize where to target your sleepers, it is critical to consider players who were injured significant in 2012 because they may have fallen off people’s radar. Last week we profiled Dodgers’ outfielder Carl Crawford who is returning from Tommy John surgery. This week, let’s take a look at a player who missed all of 2012 with a knee injury – Victor Martinez. So without further adieu, here is the first 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.
After a sluggish start to the season, the New York Yankees have exploded in June and now have the best record in baseball. A lot of their success has been because of great starting pitching up and down their rotation. However, in a matter of 24 hours, the Yankees lost their #1 and #2 starters to injuries. This proves that no one is immune to the injury bug. It also means that you have more obstacles to overcome in your fantasy baseball league. So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
