Latest Update Maicer Izturis is expected to miss 4-6 months with a ligament tear in his knee. Mon Apr, 14, 05:42 PM
Is good defensively anywhere in the infield. A versatile player, he has a solid bat from both sides. Doesn't strike out much. Can also steal bases.
Flaws: : Lacks great speed, power or explosiveness in any offensive area, and he's also a little inconsistent with the stick--which hurts his attempts to play every day.
Ryan Goins and his .107 batting average (3-for-28) will play the majority of games at second base. Let your AL-only league mates take the chance on Goins should he be available on waivers as he will do more harm than good to their team (zero home runs, zero stolen bases).Analyst: Michael Pichan
Watch out for that first step, Macier, it's a doozy. Players are heading to the DL at an alarming pace, so we should prepare ourselves for every type of injury possible it seems. Izurtis shouldn't be on your roster except in deep mixed or solo leagues, but if he is, you need to take a look at the wire for a fill-in player.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Izturis was removed due to an apparent left knee sprain. There's no word on how he suffered the injury just yet, so consider him day-to-day with the potential of a few days off. Ryan Goins will handle the keystone while Izturis is down and Jonathan Diaz will continue to fill in at short, at least until Jose Reyes is ready to return.Analyst: Howard Bender
Izturis is the ultimate utility man for the Blue Jays and is going to see plenty of playing time while Reyes is sidelined. However, he is known more for his glove than his bat so don't expect his increased at-bats to turn into quality fantasy production. Analyst: Matthew Beck
