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…)

Players to watch for in Spring Training

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

It is that time of the year again. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training! This means fantasy baseball is back! There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered throughout spring training and I am going to list some players that you should keep an eye on for this fantasy baseball season.

 

 

Jurickson Profar (Tex) – The next big thing. The one rookie who can be the “Mike Trout” or “Bryce Harper” of 2013. The sky is the limit for the 19 year old as a five tool player. The most important thing holding him back is playing time. The Rangers love this phenom and are trying to find ways to put him in the lineup as full time player. They may move Ian Kinsler to the outfield for Profar to handle second base. Or they might outright put him in the OF. We will see and make sure you follow his progression throughout spring training.

Jurickson Profar – Will the Rangers find a way for him to be in the starting lineup?
