If it hasn’t already happened yet, it will, so you’re going to want to make sure you stay prepared. But with yesterday’s news that Roy Halladay would miss six to eight weeks with a lat muscle problem and that he was being joined on the DL by Jered Weaver due to a back strain and that Roy Oswalt was signing with the Rangers likely bringing Neftali Feliz’ time as a starter to a close, your waiver wire should be a hotbed of action. Pitchers are going to start getting picked up at a rapid rate as owners begin to worry about the starters they stream and the apparent lack of depth available at this point in the season. Now obviously there’s no reason to panic, but would I grab an extra starter or two, someone half decent to stash away and leave on my bench? Absolutely. I wouldn’t do it if it came at the expense of a better offensive choice and I wasn’t in dire need, but if the league is fairly deep and you have the bench space, then I don’t think it would hurt to have an extra arm or two available – for your own use or even for trade. It’s just a matter of keeping up with the trends and keeping yourself covered. We’re only a third of the way through the season, so with so much baseball still to go, any little advantage helps.
Lance Berkman may or may not be done fore the rest of the 2012 season, we're just not sure yet. Ryan Braun --- so much for the concerns that he wouldn't be able to produce this season because of the off the field stuff that was swirling around him. Dee Gordon has been awful this season, so much so that he's lost his spot in the Dodgers order. Who is likely to hit atop the lineup? Roy Oswalt wants to pitch for a contender near his Mississippi home. He might get his wish. I'll also give you three names of players who have been tearing it up at the dish the past two weeks.
Happy Sunday everyone as another week of the fantasy baseball season is over as we creep closer and closer to the dog days of the baseball year in August. It is the first few days after the all-star break and a bunch of post hype-prospects are really hot right now, read further to see if I believe in any of them. We have a pitcher recently returning from the DL that is looking good, while one of the first half's best pitchers finally takes one on the chin. Finally we have news on why you should have never been worried about Neftali Feliz, and what I think about Daniel Hudson's start. Crack a cold one, sit back, relax, and enjoy Rounding The Bases.
The calendar changes again as we enter June and fantasy baseball is in full swing. It is prospect season now as many of the minors' best will be discussed in front offices as teams decide whether or not to bring their players up. You will likely see many over the next week or so, including Brett Lawrie even though he is resting a few days after being hit on the hand. You will likely really have to make some tough choices with these kids coming up as you can't have all of them so you have to hedge your bets on which one or two might be able to help your team. But there is plenty of other news and games happening each and every day so never miss a night of Rounding The Bases.
Happy Hump Day fantasy players! It is a very busy night on the diamond tonight as well as on the road back from injury from a former MVP. Elite closers are blowing up left and right, while some guys who aren't household names are getting the job done. An often injured starter goes the distance tonight, while a also ran for fantasy looked like a star. One of the futures of the Braves rotation struggled to find his way, while a Red Sox stud looks studly. There is so much more going on in this article tonight that I will just let you get to it and take in all of the news that you need to help you in your quest for league domination.
It was a very interesting day in the majors this Saturday, but it didn't yield a ton of new fantasy news. We had an elite closer go down to an injury, a Japanese pitcher spin an absolute gem and a fantasy sleeper return from the Disabled List. A slugging catcher continues to slug, some pitchers looking very good, while others look horrendous. We even had one who looked badly while pitching well. We also will gab about an outfielder who has gotten my attention and I tell you whether or not you should make a move on him. Don't miss that and so much more in tonight's version of Rounding The Bases.
