With injuries and roster changes happening daily in Major League Baseball, FBS continues it’s look around the league, while trying to offer a fantasy perspective whenever possible.
Alfredo Aceves, RP, New York Yankees
Aceves was placed on the disabled list by the New York Yankees earlier today with lower back discomfort. Aceves was 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA and was the Yankees long reliever.
Sergio Mitre is a good fantasy option now with Aceves on the DL. Mitre will spot start when Yankees pitchers are hurt and will be the long reliever when Aceves is on the disabled list.
Juan Cruz, P, Free Agent
Cruz will have season ending shoulder surgery today to remove a cyst in his shoulder. He was released by the Kansas City Royals back in April.
Mark Derosa, 2B/3B, San Francisco Giants
Derosa had wrist surgery before the season started and reported it as a failure. It looks as if he will require another surgery soon.
The Giants gave him a 2 year-12 million dollar contract before the season started. It looks as if they may have to wait a while longer before seeing him on the field.
Jason Marquis, P, Washington Nationals
Marquis will likely miss another eight to ten weeks with surgery to remove spurs and bone chips from his elbow. He was signed by the Nationals to start the season.
Josh Beckett, SP, Boston Red Sox
Beckett will miss his next start due to back spasms. Tim Wakefield will fill the void while Beckett is resting. Daisuke Matsuzaka has also been placed in the rotation for the Red Sox.
Both Wakefield and Matsuzaka will be viable options for your fantasy baseball team.
Jack Wilson, SS, Mariners
Earlier today, the Mariners placed shortstop Jack Wilson on the 15-day disabled list. Wilson has a strained right hamstring. Josh Wilson will continue to be the regular shortstop while he is out.
