2012 Fantasy Baseball: Top 5 Shortstops

Will Troy Tulowitzki be the premier fantasy shortstop in Major League Baseball in 2012?

With Spring Training in full swing, the 2012 fantasy baseball season is just around the corner. During the next week or so, fantasy baseball fiends across the United States will be flooding draft rooms to select their 2012 fantasy baseball lineups.

Due to a lack of depth at shortstop this season, the position is arguably the most important in the draft.

Fielder to the Nats?

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…)
