Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta breaking out of it

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:26:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta has gone 2-for-4 in each of the past three games and has homered in two of them.

FANTASY TIP: His early season struggles seem to be coming to an end. A lot of it was due to poor luck as he has hit the ball hard in a lot of at-bats. If you can buy low, now is the time.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli dislocates finger

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:13:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (finger) dislocated his left ring finger sliding into second base Tuesday, April 15. X-rays were negative.

FANTASY TIP: There is no word on how much time he'll miss. However, one must figure it's pretty hard to play first base and accept throws into a dislocated finger. The team could put him on the DL since it's so early in the season, or he could tough it out.

Angels | Kole Calhoun headed to DL

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 05:13:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun (ankle) is headed to the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury. The team could look to acquire OF Sam Fuld from the Oakland Athletics to replace him.

FANTASY TIP: It sounds as if he suffered a sprained ankle, which could keep him out two or three weeks. If it's of the high-ankle variety, he could be out longer. If he is dropped in your league, and you have the space, pick him up. OF Collin Cowgill and OF/DH Raul Ibanez could be options to fill in during his absence. Neither are worth fantasy consideration in mixed leagues. OF Brennan Boesch could also be an option, but he's not exactly tearing it up at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Astros | George Springer being called up

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 05:12:29 -0700

The Houston Astros will recall OF George Springer from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game Wednesday, April 16.

FANTASY TIP: Springer was hitting .353 with three homers and nine RBIs at Triple-A and was likely drafted in a lot of leagues. He hit .303 with 37 homers, 108 RBIs and 45 steals between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma last season. He needs to be picked up immediately in all formats.
