Fonzy Scheme: Ibanez to the DL – Time to work the wire!
The MVP to date, Raul Ibanez, has hit the 15 Day DL today with a strained left groin. The Philles web site reports that the team is taking a proactive approach with this injury and that he will be sidelined for a few weeks.
Fantasy Impact: For those of you riding Ibanez through the 1st half of the season may be nervously scrambling to find a plug and play solution that will provide your team with similar numbers. Seriously, that’s not going to happen, but here are a few players owned in less than 60% of Yahoo! leagues to look at for a temporary patch.
All statistics represent the production over the last month.
Juan Rivera (OF-LAA), owned in 55% of Y! leagues, is batting .343, 7 HR and 23 RBI
Cody Ross (OF-FLA), owned in 56% of Y! leagues, is batting .317, 20 runs , 4 HR, 16 RBI and 2 SB.
Scott Podsednik (OF-CWS), owned in 38% of Y! leagues, is batting .333, 16 runs, 15 RBI and 8 SB.
Aaron Rowand (OF-SFG), owned in 56% of Y! leagues, is batting .343, 15 runs, 3 HR, 14 RBI and 3 SB.
