2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 20 Injury Report

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Another week, another update

The Fantasy baseball regular season is winding down to a close, but as always, the injuries never do. Last week fantasy owners were fooled by Paul Konerko’s knee injury and Melky Cabrera’s supposed ankle injury. They both went on to have productive weeks in week 19 and should be strong going forward. Take a look at this week’s round of injury updates for week 20 of the fantasy baseball regular season.

3B, Adrian Beltre/Texas Rangers: Beltre has been out for the past three weeks with a strained hamstring. He was supposed to be back sooner, but re-aggravated his injury during the rehab process. He did however, take the road trip with his team over the weekend, but did not play.

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 14 (July 4-10) Injury Report

Another one bites the dust!

OF, Torii Hunter/L.A. Angels: On Friday, July 1st, during the first inning of the game, Torii Hunter was hit by a pitch on his left hand from Hiroki Kuroda and was removed from the game after playing two innings after the incident.  X-rays came back negative, but he was still held out of the lineup for both Saturday and Sunday and is listed as day-to-day.  The injury is being called a bruised left hand.  Manager Mike Scioscia did however say that Hunter would be available for defense and pinch-running, so it doesn’t sound like the injury is too serious.  For managers in weekly lineup leagues, if you have another solid option on the bench, I would use it until he proves he can still hit with that wrist.  Daily leagues, keep him sidelined until further notice.
