Update: Matt Lindstrom's surgery will repair a tear in the sheath of his left ankle. He is expected to miss three months.
No need to stash him as there is no guarantee he will be ready to go in three months. The White Sox have not said whether Ronald Belisario or Daniel Webb will replace Lindstrom as the team's closer, but neither project to have too much success so you may be better off chasing saves somewhere else starting with Rockies Rex Brothers who soon could be in line for some saves as old man LaTroy Hawkins looks like he is wearing down.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Stephen Voigt went 3-for-5 with a home run, five RBI and one run scored in the Athletics 8-6 loss to the Twins on Monday.
Voigts first inning grand slam gave him seven home runs on the season to go along with 25 RBI and an impressive .372 average. The Athletics surprisingly traded away catcher Derek Norris to the Padres in the offseason which left the starting catcher job to Voigt who impressed during stretches of last season before being hobbled with an injury which clearly affected his production. The power is real with Voigt which is something many expected from him with every day at bats but the batting average and overall productiveness has been a welcomed site and has made him an early fantasy darling to his owners. While there is certainly going to be some regression in his average there is little doubt he will reach the 20 home run plateau which should rank him among the league leads at the position.
