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.
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.
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.
We’re just a few days into the unofficial second half and already we’re seeing a few dings and dents. You’d like to think that time off for the All Star Break would have given these guys a chance to build up their strength and stamina, but the injury bug is a sneaky, little creature and strikes without warning. Fortunately, this early on, the damage isn’t too severe, but let’s take a look at some of the latest injuries around MLB that are affecting fantasy rosters everywhere.
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…
There are big names finally making their spring training debuts in Los Angeles, Boston and Texas. All of them have a decent shot to be ready for opening day barring any setbacks. The Reds however have some concern about one their young starters. In Baltimore, it is the same old story for their leadoff hitter.
