Larry Sanders (eye) underwent surgery Thursday to correct his broken orbital bone. He remains out indefinitely.
Although there has been no official word as to when Sanders will be able to return following his surgery, things are not looking good for his fantasy value. Sanders has played in only 23 games this season, averaging 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks, which would only get better if he was able to stay on the court for an extended period of time. When he returns he will likely be back in the starting lineup, but there are still too many question marks surrounding his health to warrant holding onto him in standard leagues while sidelined.

Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
