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.
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.
