The opening weekend of the MLB season is complete. It wasn’t quite what we expected though. For fantasy baseball players there were a ton of storylines to take away from the first series of the season. Key injuries to players like Blake Snell, Jon Gray, Lucas Giolito, and A.J. Pollock all have some important fantasy implications. On the other hand, performances both good and bad, have fantasy managers wondering if things are going to change. Players like Steven Kwan, Mark Canha, Austin Meadows, and Gavin Lux are off to good starts while Akil Baddoo, Alec Bohm, and Jazz Chisholm are all struggling. Speaking of struggling, what the heck is happening with closers right now? We all spent top fantasy draft picks on guys like Liam Hendriks, Craig Kimbrel, and Raisel Iglesias but haven’t seen the saves from them yet. All of this and more is covered in this week’s Fantasy Baseball Podcast and check out these other articles for more talk of all of these topics.
