postheadericon Welcome Back, Starlin!

Starlin Castro – 4 for 4 Wednesday night with a triple and 3 RBIs.  Castro has been struggling mightily as of late, hopefully this is a step to getting back on track.
 Eric Hosmer – Hit his first career major league home run Wednesday.  If the Royals decide to keep him in the 3 hole, he could provide some added value for fantasy owners.
Curtis Granderson – hit his Major League leading 12th home run last night.  Yup, as I said last week, bounce back year!
Kendrys Morales – Will have more surgery on his left ankle and will miss the remainder of the 2011 season.  A few weeks ago I asked if anyone actually thought he was going to come back this year.  Remember my answer?  Yup! I said nope!
Logan Morrison – Coming off the DL Friday, big fan of Morrison, insert back into lineups immediately.
Hanley Ramirez – 2 for 4 with his second home run of the season.  I know Hanley owners are going crazy with him, but continue to be patient, he will come around.
John Lackey – 6.2 IP 9 R as he continues to pitch horribly.  Hes not worth owning in any leagues, abandon ship.
Grady Sizemore – Had an MRI on his knee Wednesday, results of the MRI came back negative.  Consider him day to day.
Adam Lind – Apparently Lind will not be heading to the DL and will return Friday.
Jason Heyward – Fredi Gonzalez hopes to have him back by the weekend.  Fredi better have him back by the weekend for fantasy squads!
Jorge Posada – 2 for 3 Wednesday as he raises his average to .162 on the year.  This is Posadas 3rd multi hit game in his last 9, could be the start of something.
Adam Dunn – 4 for 5 with home run and double raising his average to .215 on the year.  I don’t understand why I’m getting so many messages asking if Dunn should be dropped.  Trust me, Dunn should not be dropped.
Jake Peavy – 6 IP 4 ER in his season debut against the Angels.  Rather pedestrian start against a weak Angels offense.  I wouldn’t start him in his next start, let him work the rust off (if he’s not hurt before then).
