It’s been a fairly rough week for yours truly here, not just in real life (hence the absence for the majority of the week), but in the fantasy racket as well. Injuries have been absolutely brutal to all of my fantasy teams during this young season and Friday turned out to be yet another dark and dismal day in my attempts to climb back into contention. Obviously there’s plenty more to come, but when your team is sitting in a relatively deep hole and you continue to lose players faster than you are getting them back, the fantasy doldrums seem a lot like a permanent residence than just a temporary situation.
Bullpen turnover last year was at an all-time high with two of every three teams making changes in the 9th inning. We're not even to March yet of 2013 and there is already movement with a few teams setup at the end of the game. Will the presumptive Athletics closer be healthy enough to take the ball on Opening Day? Just how historically good is the Rockies' closer? Who is going to get the call for the Blue Jays since both of their options are coming back from shoulder surgery? What the heck are the Astros doing with their bullpen? After breaking down those throwers we'll spend a wee bit of time looking into a couple of outfield situations that could have an impact in how you draft players for your fantasy baseball squad in 2013.
