Delmon Young – Was carted off on a stretcher for an ankle injury.  Really? You need a stretcher for an ankle injury?  Anyway, Delmon was placed on g DL and is most likely going to be out for a while, im thinking August.  Hes now droppable in all leagues.

Jordan Walden – Blew his 5th save of the season to the Dodgers.  Don’t expect to see a closer change, Walden has been fairly solid as of late throwing 7.2 scoreless innings.

Evan Longoria – 8 hits in the series versus the Astros including a 4 for 6 day on Sunday with 2 home runs and 5 RBI.  Looks like all will be fine in Longoria world after all.

Jonathan Broxton – Was pulled from his rehab appearance when his elbow stiffened up on him.  Without any further information we can only guess  how long Broxton will be out.

Jose Tabata – Injured his quad on Sunday and had to leave the game on a motorized cart.  Expect Tabata to land on the DL.

Jonathan Sanchez – Was placed on the DL with biceps soreness.  Sanchez there’s no pain there but it’s just “kind of sore”.  Sounds like a phantom injury to me while he works out whatever flaws he has.

John Danks – Placed on the 15 day DL with a strained right oblique.  Makes sense that Danks would get injured when he finally starts pitching better!  He’s set to undergo an MRI on Monday, we will know more then.

Carlos Guillen – Finally scheduled for a rehab assignment for single A Lakeland.    Guillen will be an option in AL only leagues until he proves otherwise.

Alex Rodriguez – Admitted that he had a sore knee that he sustained while running the bases against the Cubs.  It doesn’t look like that sore knee is bothering him too much as he has been red hot lately.

Jose Reyes – 4 for 5 with  a triple RBI and stolen base.  Reyes MVP season continues in major fashion, yes, I said MVP.

Alex Gordon – 2 for 4 with a double and RBI and now has a modest  12 game hitting streak.  Alex Gordon being unproductive this year?  HA!

Brandon Phillips – 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI.  This was Phillips first home run in June and also his first in 38 games.  Thanks for showing up, Brandon!
