Do you need to replace your fantasy baseball busts? Which fantasy baseball players can you ignore?'s Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market gives you fantasy baseball tips and insight to sort through the masses quickly.


Acquire Add player (in most circumstances)
Consider Add for speculation or because of need
Watch Track player, consider if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)


Aaron Rowand, OF, San Francisco Giants

Andres Torres had an emergency appendectomy on Sunday and will miss a week and a half to two weeks. The likeliest beneficiary is Rowand, who was a starter before Torres emerged and the club acquired 17 other outfielders. Rowand started in center on Sunday.

Rowand went 0-for-5 at the top spot in the lineup and has batted a meager .231, with 10 homers and five stolen bases, in 320 at-bats this season. The right-handed hitter has often provided solid depth for deep mixed leaguers, and he's not washed up. However, he and Cody Ross, also a right-handed hitter, may have to wrestle for at-bats. Stay tuned, at least if you need some short-term help.

Shallow mixed: Pass

Deep mixed: Pass

NL-only: Consider
