  1. Add Yadier Molina now

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals had to be hoping that when superb catcher Yadier Molina was lost for a few months with a thumb injury, they could merely remain within striking distance of the NL Central lead. Mission accomplished there. The Cardinals are NL ...

  3. Encarnacion, Votto hurt; trade roundup

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners had a legitimate -- in theory -- decision to make a few months ago if looking at drafting first basemen in the second round. Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Davis were off the board, leaving, essentially, Edwin Encarnacion, Prince Fielder a...

  4. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

    A pair of Los Angeles Angels outfielders returned from injury to the lineup Tuesday in Houston, but only one of them lasted the entire game, and it's not the one who was selected first -- or second, in theory, I suppose -- in nearly every fantasy dra...

  5. Pleasant surprises among top relievers

    Eric Karabell

    Let's talk closers! With roughly a third of the MLB season complete and much upheaval in terms of injuries and torn UCLs and hitters performing below expectations, it's actually been a relatively quiet season so far for closers. After all, of the top...

    Eric Karabell

  8. 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 ...

  9. Don't overreact to Matt Moore's injury

    Eric Karabell
