postheadericon HOSMER TEES OFF!

Eric Hosmer – 3 for 5 with a homer as the 21 year old is starting to pick it up.  Hes worth owning while hot, but you need to limit your expectations for Hosmer this year,  I wouldn’t expect more than 15-17 homers from him.

Dallas Braden – has a torn capsule in his shoulder that will be repaired next Monday.  Braden is most likely done for the season, but a clear time table wont be set until the surgery is complete.

Carlos Beltran – Hit 3 two run homers Thursday afternoon is a Mets 9-5 win.  Now would be an excellent time to sell high on him.

Jason Heyward –  Heywards MRI only should right shoulder inflammation.  Heyward was given a cortisone shot and will sit the next few games.  

Rafael Furcal – Expected to begin a AAA rehab assignment Saturday.  To give his broken left thumb some more time to heal, he will only bat left handed.

Ubaldo Jimenez – 3.2 IP 5 R 6 BB in yet another miserable outing.  One has to think Ubaldo is hurting and not saying anything, he was not even close to the strike zone today.  If you own him, I truly believe you have to start him.

Roy Oswalt – Pitched 7 innings of 3 run ball in his first rehab stint.  After his start catcher Carlos Ruiz told reporters that Oswalt had no life on his fastball.  Reports said that Oswalts fastball was 4 MPH under his normal velocity.  Continue to monitor this situation closely, I wouldn’t expect him activated for his start Tuesday.

Jordan Zimmerman – 6.1 IP 5 H 3 ER 11 K as his bullpen blows him a win.  The 11K’s were a career high for Zimmerman.  It was really nice to see Zimmerman starting K’ing some guys, without his K’s he becomes less valuable.

There are some posts missing and I am trying to figure out why they are missing.  I am very sorry for this as Blogger is having issues.
