2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Fix DL Report – Week Nineteen
Welcome to the nineteenth week of the Fix DL Report. Each week I (@Rich_Migs) will cover significant fantasy baseball injuries. As the season continues, the report will address some of the most recent injuries and their fantasy implications.
OUT FOR THE SEASON: Patrick Corbin, Brandon Beachy, Kris Medlen, Jarrod Parker, Cory Luebke, Bruce Rondon, Bobby Parnell, Jameson Taillon, Avisail Garcia, Matt Moore, Maicer Izturis, Ivan Nova, A.J. Griffin, Jose Fernandez, Martin Perez, Prince Fielder, Chris Withrow, Gavin Floyd, C.C. Sabathia, Bronson Arroyo, Matt Cain, Paul Maholm, Paul Goldschmidt
PLAYERS TO WATCH (Not on DL/DL Updates): Andrew McCutchen (oblique), Anibal Sanchez (pectorals), Andrelton Simmons (ankle), Carlos Gonzalez (ankle), Jose Altuve (neck), Hanley Ramirez (side), Jarrod Cosart (oblique), Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring), Mark Teixeira (finger), Neil Walker (back), Alex Rios (ankle), Jayson Werth (shoulder)
The Pirates are hoping McCutchen won’t need a DL stint, but it seems like it may happen.
Anibal Sanchez is likely to also be DL bound.
Simmons should be returning to the lineup next week.
Carlos Gonzalez continues to be banged up and his stock will drop heavily going into next year’s draft.
We lose another first rounder (and likely a top-5 pick for most leagues) for the season. Sigh.
Here is week eighteen’s DL report. I will be doing my best to avoid too much repetition each week, so be sure to refer back to the past DL reports to keep track of all the injuries. Let’s take a look at some of the key fantasy players on the disabled list entering the week.
