postheadericon MONDAY ROUNDUP!!!

Marlon Byrd – Hit in the eye with a pitch and now has multiple fractures with some blurry vision.  Byrd was placed on the 15 day DL.
Felix Hernandez – 8 IP, 1 ER, 13 K’s with his 5th win of the season.  King Felix, doing straight work!
Fernando Salas – converted his 4 saves last week as it looks like the Cardinals have finally found their closer!  Salas has gotten the job done very well thus far, but he just doesn’t have that dominating stuff closers have.  I don’t expect his save opportunities to go this easy all year.
Jason Heyward – Placed on the DL due to the same bum shoulder that was bothering him 2 weeks ago.  Hopefully this stint isn’t any longer than 15 days.  The injury doesn’t sound too serious.
Chase Utley – Will be activated from the DL on Monday.  The day ALL Utley owners have been waiting for has finally arrived!  He’s a must start immediately!
Edinson Volquez – 2.2 IP, 6 ER and 11 baser runners.  That first inning continues to kill Volquez, he should not be owned in any mixed leagues and shouldn’t be started in NL only until he figures his stuff out.
Andre Ethier – Left with injuries to his right elbow and left big toe.  He is listed as day to day.
James Shields – dominant in yet another start, with 13 K’s and is now 2nd in the league in strikeouts.  He didn’t start this well last year, but be weary of the wheels coming off at some point this year.
Matt Holliday – Hurt his quad over the weekend and is not expected to play Monday like originally expected.  The Cards continue to say this is a day to day thing, but don’t be surprised if Holliday goes on the DL at some point this week.
Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton – Both are expected to be activated from the DL Monday, and both are must starts immediately!

I've got Cruz coming back in one league, happy 'bout that. Are you sayin that it might be wise to sell Shields high? I've got him in one league, been very happy.

I would sell EXTREMELY high on him if you can. Get an SP1 for him.
