It is now time to say those three words that baseball fans love more than anything during the cold and snowy winter – pitchers and catchers. Spring training is upon us as we continue analyzing and evaluating players coming back from serious injuries or missed time in 2012. We have spent the past several weeks looking at players such as Carl Crawford, Victor Martinez, Jose Bautista, and Roy Halladay. Now let’s turn our attention to a relief pitcher whose comeback could provide great value in the always volatile saves category. So without further adieu, here is the fifth installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
As February begins, we can start to imagine the snow and ice thawing as pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Hope springs eternal for all MLB teams, as well as fantasy owners. We have spent the past several weeks looking at some players who were coming back after serious injuries from 2012, including Carl Crawford, Victor Martinez, and Jose Bautista. Now let’s take a look at a former multiple time Cy Young award winner who missed some time in 2012 and is looking to rebound from a sub-par season (for his standards). So without further adieu, here is the fourth installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
The calendar is about to turn to February and pitchers and catchers will be reporting within a couple weeks. We will soon get a chance to see several players coming back from serious injuries and get a better sense on how well recovered they are and whether their fantasy baseball value will return to pre-injury status. After profiling Carl Crawford and Victor Martinez, this week’s column will focus on former homerun champion Jose Bautista. Joey Bats was a bona fide top ten pick the past couple years, but a serious wrist injury has cast some doubt as to his capabilities. So without further adieu, here is the third installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
We are now less than a month away from spring training which means fantasy baseball draft season will be heating up real soon. As you make your preparations and strategize where to target your sleepers, it is critical to consider players who were injured significant in 2012 because they may have fallen off people’s radar. Last week we profiled Dodgers’ outfielder Carl Crawford who is returning from Tommy John surgery. This week, let’s take a look at a player who missed all of 2012 with a knee injury – Victor Martinez. So without further adieu, here is the first installment of the Walking Wounded for the 2013 fantasy baseball season.
We’re almost through the dog days of summer here and down to less than two months to go in the regular season. Injuries at this time of year can be brutal for a fantasy team, whether it’s for a month and the player’s season is shot or if it’s just for a week, cutting you short on production for the upcoming scoring period. There were a few notable bumps and bruises since the last Injury Report along with some news of players getting ready to return and help you down the stretch, so let’s get to it…
