When pondering what mixed emotions feel like, consider this week in fantasy baseball. Once again, there are several impact players that have succumbed to injuries. But, there are also several players on the mend and starting rehab assignments or already are set to return this week. So without further adieu, here is the Week 12 edition of the Walking Wounded.
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.
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 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.
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 get it. The injury bug is hungry. He’s already fat, having feasted on a number of players all around MLB, and apparently his appetite is insatiable. Enough already! I know that my fantasy teams can’t take much more and I’m sure most of you out there are suffering as well. Frustration levels are getting as high as your waiver wire is getting thin. So let’s roam around the league and see who’s out, who’s banged up, and who’s on the mend. We’ll throw in some suggested replacements if we can and see if we can’t help keep you off the fantasy ledge. Let’s get to it…
We have an updates on starters around the league and potential closer opening just in time for those final drafts. A young gun in San Diego suffers a bump in the road while a cagey veteran finally gets some answers in Cincinnati. The Philles continue to rack up the injuries but that could open the door for a nice sleeper closer. The Rangers lose a starter for an extended peroid of time while Atlanta has nothing to worry about. All in this installment of the fantasy alarm injury report.
