From a statistical standpoint, McRoberts had a very underwhelming season this past year. However, the Miami Heat want to retain the power forward's services. For us fantasy players, McRoberts is a non-factor.
Iglesias is a slick-fielding shortstop who is much better in real life than fantasy. He doesn't have any plus offensive skills, and that makes him hard to roster in fantasy baseball. He's still a bit away from returning to the game, but even so, he's not worth rostering in anything other than the deepest of AL-only formats.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is the quarterback to own for the Jets and he needs to start for that team. If you drafted Brandon Marshall or Eric Decker, you should be very happy when hearing this, because the aforementioned players would drop significantly in the rankings if Smith were under center. Fitzpatrick's numbers will take a slight dip this season, but Marshall and Decker should be fine fantasy wise.
Seager fouled a ball off his foot Tuesday night and hasn't played since. Seager is enjoying a career season, so hopefully he doesn't have to miss any more time. He has a legitimate chance at a 30 home run campaign, but he needs to get back on the field to do so.
It was originally thought it was an ankle issue, but turns out to be a knee sprain. Sprains can usually keep a guy out of the lineup for a few days, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss a few days. However, hopefully it isn't much more than that.
Benintendi had to leave the game after injuring his left ankle. There hasn't been much word as to how severe the injury is, so he should be considered day-to-day for the time being. He's been a quality producer thus far in his young career, so hopefully he isn't out for long.
Marlins needed a right-handed hitting outfielder with Giancarlo Stanton going down, so it's not a surprise the team went out and got one. He is slashing just .249/.290/.381 on the season, but for the low price it cost, he should be able to do the job. The team is ultimately hoping that Stanton is able to return before the end of the season.
It was initially thought that he may have to miss the rest of the season, but perhaps Wacha could return for a playoff push. He's still a couple weeks away from returning, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect to have him for the majority of what's left of the fantasy season. He was 7-7 with a 4.45 ERA and 1.42 WHIP before going on the disabled list.
Cameron Rupp has clearly taken the larger role behind the plate for the Phillies and right now, he's definitely the better player. Ruiz was good a few years back, but Father Time has caught up to him like everyone else. He shouldn't be owned in any format.
