Another week and another slew of injuries. This week’s list contains some repeat offenders which means that you should have already been on notice of how susceptible they are to injury. Sure, anyone can sustain a freak injury. But there are some players that have a history of maladies which makes them inherent risks to draft and rely upon thereafter. Basically, you assumed the risk when you drafted some of these guys. Don’t blame them…blame yourselves. So without further adieu, here is the Week 5 edition of the Walking Wounded.
Happy holidays to everyone as we celebrate America’s birthday. Nothing is more American than baseball, especially fantasy baseball. This week is no different than any other week with big names getting banged up and wreaking havoc on fantasy teams. Because of the holidays, travel, and other commitments, I am limited with time this week. So without further adieu, here is a truncated edition of the walking wounded.
Another week has gone by and more players find themselves in the infirmary. It is staggering how many injuries there have been thus far. If nothing else, this season has tested your ability to be creative, manipulate the waiver wire, and negotiate trades with your fellow league members. Gotta stay positive! So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
Who knew it was so dangerous to be a closer for a major league baseball team? Just about half of the teams in the league have switched closers either due to injury or ineffectiveness. In the past week, a couple more went down. Pretty soon, you could send your resume to your favorite team’s general manager because teams are running out of ninth inning options. So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
Beware if you are a third baseman. They seem to be dropping like flies as some big names have gone down with serious injuries. Another week has gone by and more fantasy baseball rosters are in flux. This is why it is so important for you to scour the waiver wire and accumulate depth on your roster because injuries can happen at any time. So without further adieu, here is the next edition of the walking wounded.
We’re getting closer and closer to that point where an injury to a player means “done for the season”. Time is running out. With less than two weeks before the calendar flips to September and we’re in the official stretch run, now is the most important time to stay on top of injuries and to work that waiver wire if needed. Quite a number of players visiting the infirmary over the last few days, so let’s get right to it…
Some high impact fantasy players are recovering nicely from previous injuries while some other big names are struggling. The Cardinals seemed to have avoided another disaster while the Red Sox are pleased with the progress of their newly acquired slugger. The Los Angeles Angels maybe in the market for a bat while they await their slugger to return. Other promising free agent signings are battling injury and age questions in this installment of the injury updates.
