2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 19 Injury Report

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Another week, another update

By now I’m sure you already know how my saying goes; another week of fantasy baseball means another week of injury updates. Take a look at who’s coming and going for week 19 of fantasy baseball action.

OF, Melky Cabrera/Kansas City Royals: Melky Cabrera was pulled from Saturday night’s game because of a sore left ankle. He hurt that same left ankle earlier in the week, so he might get extended time off for the ankle to fully recover. He was scratched from Sunday’s game and whether he will play or not on Monday, against the Rays, is yet to be seen. The Royals don’t seem to be making too much of the issue, so for right now it doesn’t seem too serious. Melky is considered day-to-day for now. (more…)

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 18 Injury Report

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Another week, another update

Another week of baseball, another week of injury updates. Take a look at some big names that may or may not be able to help your fantasy cause for this week.

1B, Paul Konerko/Chicago White Sox: After being hit by a pitch on his left calf during Sunday’s game, Paul Konerko was removed from the lineup and given the rest of the day off. After X-rays were taken, only a bruise was revealed. Consider the injury minor and expect to see Pauli back in the White Sox lineup on Monday, at home, against the New York Yankees; a series in which Ozzie Guillen will most assuredly want Konerko to be a part of.

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 17 Injury Report

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Another week, another update

To all my fantasy baseball owners out there, you know the rules, “another week of baseball, another week of injury updates.” You can’t live with them and you can’t live without them, so take a quick look at some key names either coming or going in week 17 of fantasy baseball action.

OF, Vladimir Guerrero/Baltimore Orioles: Could be activated from the DL by Tuesday’s series opener at Toronto. Guerrero has been out of action since the All-Star break after being hit by a pitch on his right hand. Guerrero has already played a rehab game for Class-AA Bowie on Sunday, so he looks like a full-go here in week 17 of fantasy baseball. (more…)

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 16 Injury Report

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Another week, another update

You know the rules, another week of fantasy baseball means another week of fantasy injury updates. Read below to get a quick glance at who’s coming and going for week 16 of the fantasy regular season.

OF, Jose Bautista/Toronto Blue Jays: Jose Bautista has missed the last several games with a twisted right ankle. He hasn’t been placed on the DL yet, as the injury is not believed to be that serious. The Blue Jays believe that Bautista may have a good shot at returning for their next game on Tuesday the 19th at home against Seattle. For those in weekly leagues, I deem it safe to roll him this week. (more…)

2011 Fantasy Baseball: Week 15 Injury Report

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Another week, another update

Another week, another set of injury updates.  Take a look at some of the big names that are coming or going, on the DL that is.

Carlos Gonzalez, OF/Colorado Rockies: An X-ray revealed a deep bone bruise for Carlos Gonzalez.  He returned to the lineup this past Friday as a defensive replacement, but still missed 4 games prior to that.  Hopefully after the All-Star break he’ll be recovered and ready to go, but bone bruises can be tricky and take a long time to heal.  Daily leaguers wait for updates, and weekly leaguers will want to tread carefully and proceed with caution.  After his return, I wouldn’t start him until he’s got a week under his belt and at least shows he can still play with that wrist.
