Injured Players and Their Outlook

Monday, March 18th, 2013

We are in the midst of spring training and there are quite a few impact players who are out with injuries. I will examine some impact players and their injuries for this fantasy baseball season. I will give an outlook on what to expect when they come back from their injuries and whether it is worth it to pick up these players.

 

Curtis Granderson a name to not ignore in your drafts

Curtis Granderson is injured but should not be forgotten

Curtis Granderson and Mark Texiera (NYY) – A double whammy for the beloved/hated New York Yankees. Granderson got hurt in the very first Yankees spring training game and his very first at-bat. A J.A. Happ pitch fractured his right forearm and he is out for 10 weeks. He is scheduled to come back some time in May.

Outlook: I would gamble on him. I think once he knocks off the rust he will be a solid addition to your team. He may not hit 40+ HRs missing 2 months but he can hit 30+ HRs after he comes back, which makes him a nice bargain in daily fantasy baseball leagues.

As for Teixiera, I am more worried about him than I do about Grandy. Why? (more…)

Early sleepers to remember

Lance Berkman is set to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton

Lance Berkman is set to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton

Last week I gave some players to look out for this spring training. This week, I am going list some more sleepers to remember heading into this fantasy baseball season.

 

Lance Berkman (Tex) – Here is a familiar name we all know. Two years removed from a surprise renaissance year with St. Louis, Berkman proves that can still be productive. But, let’s face it; the first thing that comes to mind about Lance is “injury prone”.  He had a disaster final year with the Cards as he played in only 32 games. Now he is with the Texas Rangers and playing as one of the key parts to fill the void left over by Josh Hamilton. I am banking on him having a bounce back season as being the DH for the Rangers will lessen his chances of getting hurt. It is not a stretch to think he can have a 30 HR/90+ RBI campaign.

 

Kendrys Morales (LAA) – The deepest infield position this year has to be 1B. One player to keep an eye on is Morales. This player will forever be known for his game winning celebration in 2010 where he broke his ankle after he hit a walk off grand slam. (more…)
