I saw you...AND HIM....walking in the rain...

4 games on Tuesday night were washed away due to rain. Pirates/Nationals, Blue Jays/Tigers, Orioles/Red Sawx, Marlins/Mets.

INJURY NEWS

Mets 3B David Wright was placed on the DL with a stress fracture in his back.  Probably from trying to carry that woeful team on his back all season.

Reds RP Aroldis Chapman was placed on the DL with shoulder inflammation.  Yeah sure..that’s what it was.

Yankees RP Rafael Soriano went on the DL with an elbow injury.  It was his right one, the same one that’s given him many problems in the past.

Yankees OF Nick Swisher missed Tuesday night’s game with an illness.  Must have looked at the standings.  He was quoted as saying he hasn’t felt this bad since that Anita Bryant concert.

White Sox 3B Mark Teahan went on the DL with a strained right oblique.

Red Sox SP Dice K went on the DL with elbow problems.

Cardinals OF Colby Rasmus sat out Tuesday night’s game with an abdominal issue.

Not sure if he suffered the injury on this play or not

Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval is off to a great start this season, after having a rough 2nd year in the bigs. Unfortunately he’s out at least 4-6 weeks after suffering a fractured hamate bone. That’s the same injury that’s kept Phillies prospect Dominic Brown sidelined all season.

In more positive injury news, Rays 3B Evan Longoria is hoping to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Brewers SP Zack Grienke is targeting May 4th for his return.

Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez and Indians OF Grady Sizemore both received Saturday off as a rest day.

Indians DH Travis Hafner sat out on Saturday again with an ankle injury.  That’s the 3rd straight game Pronk has missed.

Cardinals skipper Tony La Russa has relegated RP Ryan Franklin to long relief for the near future, leaving him as useless for fantasy purposes as rehab is for Lindsay Lohan.

Red Sox 3B Kevin Youkilis left Saturday’s game after injuring the same hip you read about on FB2K on Thursday night.

Pirates OF Jose Tabata left the game in the first inning with hamstring tightness.  I’m sure running away from his crazy wife/gf doesn’t help.

Feliz means happy...but not for Neftali owners....

Rangers closer Neftali Feliz hit the DL on Saturday with shoulder inflammation.  40 year old Darren Oliver got the save Saturday night, but look for Ron Washington to go to a committee.
Twins 1B Justin Morneau returned to the lineup Saturday and went 2-5 with 2 RBIs.
NY Mets SP Chris Young…not the CF for the Diamondbacks that has actually been moved to leadoff….plans to start Tuesday against the Nationals.

Brewers 2B Richie Weeks will return to the lineup on Sunday.

Blue Jays 2B Aaron Hill will be placed on the DL after the game Sunday.

Phillies RP Ryan Madson picked up his 2nd straight save Saturday night, but manager Charlie Manuel said he was just giving Jose Contreras some rest.  He’s still the closer to own in Philly.

To be the man, you gotta beat the man...and I don't think so

The Giants sent rookie Brandon Belt and his .192 batting average to the minors on Wednesday. He’s definitely one to keep an eye on for keeper/dynasty leagues. They activated Philly Killer Cody Ross from the DL. He promptly went 0-4 in a loss to the Rockies.  Kung Fu Panda missed the game due to a tricep strain.

Our daily Justin Morneau update….the Twins 1B missed Wednesday’s game with the flu.

Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was back in the lineup Wednesday.  He went 0-2 with an RBI, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, and a caught stealing.

Reds SP Mike Leake will make his scheduled start on Thursday against Arizona.  I guess as long as he didn’t murder anybody…what is this Ohio St football?

Mets OF Jason Bay will be activated off the DL on Thursday.  He’s Canadian.

Blue Jays 2B Aaron Hill went for an MRI on his hamstring Wednesday.  Also, Marlins OF Logan Morrison was sent for an MRI on his injured left foot.

Indians attendance increases by 8 when Grady plays

Indians OF Grady Sizemore returned to action Sunday and treated the home fans who gave him a standing ovation to a 2-4 performance with a double and a solo homer. SP Fausto Carmona earned his first win of the season going 7 innings and giving up 5 hits with only 1 earned run. He walked a batter and had 5 Ks. The Indians swept the Orioles who now have lost their 7th straight game.

The Rangers Nightmare wasn't on Elm St...it was on 161st.

Pinstripes make anyone look classy

Here’s the fantasy news for a Saturday chock full of baseball.  Every Major League team is in action today.  I’m getting an earlier start today so I won’t be so tired this time. I’m slow enough as it is.  It would also help if I post these the same night I write them instead of getting around to it the next day.  I guess it will take me some time to round into regular season form as well.
