postheadericon WEDNESDAY A-BOMBS!!!!!!

Alex Rodriguez – 2 for 4 with 2 home runs on Tuesday. Arod hasn’t exactly put up the numbers fantasy owners were looking for but hes been far from a disappointment. I think its safe to say that Arod is now over his oblique injury.

Dice K – Place on the disable list with a sprained right elbow. The results of the MRI have not been made public yet. Alfredo Aceves will take Dice K’s spot in the rotation.

David Wright – Placed on the DL retroactive to May 16th with a stress fracture in his lower back. The Mets seem to be downplaying Wrights injury, expecting him to not miss much time. I think Wright is going to be out longer than expected.

Andrew Cashner – Out past the all-star break as he tweaked his problematic shoulder again. The good news is there was no structural damage and no surgery is needed.

Julio Teheran –Teheran will take the place of injured starter Brandon Beachy and start on Wednesday. I don’t believe Teheran is worth an add in mixed leagues. Teheran is expected to be demoted back to AAA after his start.

Colby Rasmus – After being cleared to return on Monday, Rasmus was sitting out for the third straight say. St. Louis says this was just precautionary and wanted to give him an extra days rest.

Randy Wells – Could rejoin the Cubs rotation during the team’s next home stand. Wells should be added immediately upon his return.

Peter Bourjos – 0 for his last 17 and hasn’t stolen a base since May 2nd. You have the all clear to cut Bourjos from all mixed league rosters. Bourjos value is tied be his speed, until he starts stealing bases he has no value.

Carlos Pena – hit a 3 run home run on his 33rd birthday. That is now his 5th home run in the month of May. Pena is a must start in all leagues until he cools off.

Ryan Braun – 1 for 3 with a walk and stolen bases. The stolen base was Brauns 8th of the season, braun is well on his way to putting him his superstar numbers of 2009 (.320/32/114/20)

Ubaldo Jimenez – 7 IP, 3 ER, 7 K’s. It’s nice to see Ubaldo pitch well, even if it was against a weaker offense. Ubaldos biggest problems this year has been walks and he only walked one on the day. If Ubaldo can keep his walks down, he will start seeing some success.

Josh Johnson – MRI came back negative and his hoping to make his next start.
