  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 ...

  2. Fantasy value of Pirates lineup

    Eric Karabell

    The Pittsburgh Pirates enter Tuesday having lost six games in a row, but don't worry, center fielder Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to return to save the day! The defending NL MVP has apparently recovered from his rib injury and Tuesday is the first d...

  3. Adams valuable, even if Taveras returns

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams played in 52 games before hitting the disabled list in late May with a calf injury, and in that span, he hit a mere three home runs. Adams was getting many singles, beating defensive shifts, but it was har...

  4. Surprising end-of-season predictions

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to Friday the 13th, the only one of this entire calendar year, and one can be sure if there's an impactful baseball injury on this day many a fantasy owner will blame it on bad luck because of the number 13. Without getting into how ridiculou...

  5. 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...

  6. Versatile Ben Zobrist could be DL-bound

    Eric Karabell

    I've long been a fan and defender of Tampa Bay Rays switch-hitter Ben Zobrist, enjoying his versatility and 20-homer, 20-steal potential. However, being objective, I was also planning to write a blog entry wondering whether he's become a bit overrate...

  7. Wieters' elbow injury a major concern

    Eric Karabell

    The No. 2 catcher on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater started at designated hitter for the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, hitting a pair of singles in five at-bats and raising his batting average to an impressive .341. Then again, nobody knows when Matt ...

  8. Chris Davis, Bryce Harper latest to hit DL

    Eric Karabell

    The final weekend of April ended similar to the ones before it, with fantasy owners scrambling to fill roster slots as key contributors continued to fall from lineups. This past weekend the Beltway-area teams were featured, as key sluggers in the mid...

    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...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 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...

  12. Nationals preparing for infield shake-up?

    Eric Karabell

    The details regarding Ryan Zimmerman's shoulder injury are starting to become a bit clearer, and it's actually possible that if the Washington Nationals move him over to first base, at least on a part-time basis, there really could be no statistical ...

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

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore is not hurt as badly as it originally looked when he left his Monday outing in the fifth inning, but generally when a pitcher leaves a start in the worrisome fashion he did, clutching...

    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...

  15. Fantasy impact of Chapman's injury

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Thursday, there was only one relief pitcher being selected ahead of Cincinnati Reds lefty Aroldis Chapman in ESPN standard drafts. Unfortunately, this will change now that Chapman is likely out until mid-May at least after a scary incident W...

  16. Rockies lose Tulo, Beachy set to return

    Eric Karabell

    The seemingly brittle NL West teams just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to key injuries. The Los Angeles Dodgers haven't had their optimal lineup all year, and two outfielders are still out. The San Diego Padres got center fielder Cameron ...
