  2. Adrian Beltre the latest star to hit shelf

    Eric Karabell

    A second member of the top 10 in ESPN average live drafts has hit the disabled list, as Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw has company in Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. However, while Beltre was placed on the DL Sunday, i...

  3. Don't rush to pick up Dayan Viciedo

    Eric Karabell

    The loss of Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia for the rest of the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder shouldn't send shockwaves through the fantasy baseball world. After all, Garcia, 22, was owned in barely 10 percent of ES...

  4. Can Braves rotation maintain success?

    Eric Karabell

    The Atlanta Braves debut for right-hander Ervin Santana could not have gone much better. The veteran Santana, who was signed seemingly out of desperation after two of the team's starting pitchers ruined their elbows, made his first start Wednesday at...

  5. Is Josh Hamilton worth waiting for?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners will be tempted to cut Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton now that he's on the shelf for at least six weeks, and perhaps more than two months, with a thumb injury, but I think that's a mistake. Sure, I can't possibly know how ...

  6. Should Braun owners sell high on him?

    Eric Karabell

    Much-maligned Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun entered Tuesday with a .150 batting average, nary a home run or a run batted in and a worrisome thumb problem. He'll enter Wednesday hitting .240 with three home runs, seven RBIs and yep, still...

  7. Yordano Ventura electric in season debut

    Eric Karabell

    In a fantasy baseball world that unfortunately gets cluttered with so many injuries -- and there were more significant ones Tuesday -- it's always nice to see a young pitcher with nasty stuff make us smile. It reminds us why baseball is so awesome an...

  8. Middlebrooks, Teixeira land on DL

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into the weekend both Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks and New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira were owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, each having been selected in the range of the 17th round in ESPN live dr...

  9. Charlie Blackmon's staying power

    Eric Karabell

    The fact that Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is not one of the 10 most added players in ESPN standard leagues tells me that his historic game Friday night, when he registered six hits in six trips to the plate with five RBIs and four ru...

  10. Weekend Watch: Matt Kemp returns

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is expected to make his season debut in center field Friday night against the San Francisco Giants, and from what I've read he's feeling pretty confident he's healthy and ready to resume his productive ways. F...

  11. Colabello a shrewd daily league pickup

    Eric Karabell

    The story of Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello is actually kind of interesting, one I followed during the past year due to my investment in one of my deep teams. The Massachusetts native played for most of his 20s in the indepe...

  12. Closer Report: Papelbon's woes

    Eric Karabell

    Honestly, if closers keep pitching the way they have so far this season, we're going to need to devote a daily column to it. On Monday, those fellows were a mess. On Tuesday, it was a bit quieter. On Wednesday, an incredible six closers blew saves, s...

  13. Bonifacio is bona fide for now

    Eric Karabell

    Let's make this clear up front: Chicago Cubs speedster Emilio Bonifacio is not exactly a great baseball player. However, the Cubs have played two games and Bonifacio has nine hits and three stolen bases already. He's the fourth guy in 85 years to sta...

  14. Jason Heyward capable of greatness

    Eric Karabell

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward has yet to reach his 25th birthday. That's right, the team's leadoff hitter is in his fifth season but is still just 24, still full of promise and upside. And the two-run homer he smacked off Milwaukee Brewers ...

  15. Opening Day closer shake-ups

    Eric Karabell

    If the first full day of the 2014 major league season is any indication, it's going to be a ridiculous season for big league closers, more so than normal. In a span of a few hours Monday there was one news item after another affecting the crazy world...

  16. Jose Reyes already on disabled list

    Eric Karabell

    Say this for Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes: He certainly didn't waste any time getting injured this season. The speedy but brittle fourth-round selection in ESPN live drafts left Monday's game with what was called hamstring tightness after o...
