Andrew McCutchen says he had a fractured rib, not an oblique strain.
Either way, it's still looking like a 3-to-4 week recovery timetable at the minimum. Fantasy owners are going to be caught shorthanded, so again, the advice is to go category-specific with your replacement. Find out where you can move the most and pick up someone strong in those areas. At this stage of the game, you won't find someone to give you that 5-category production that McCutchen does, so formulate a tighter game plan.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
