postheadericon Another Elbow Bites the Dust!!

Dick K – Opting for Tommy John surgery.  Not a huge loss, Dice K sucks anyway.

Hanley Ramirez – Looks like Hanley might be taking a trip to the 15 day DL.  We will know the final decision on Friday….Expect Hanley to be placed on the DL

Matt Holliday – Speaking of someone going to the DL, Holliday was placed on it Wednesday.  As I told you last week, he was headed their anyway.

Aramis Ramirez – Went to go dive for a groundball and it ended up hitting him in the face.  Ramirez needed a few stitches in his lip, but overall escaped major injuries.  Expect Ramirez to be back in the lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

Fernando Salas – Blew his first saved of the year with 2 outs.  Salas allowed a single then a stolen base, followed by a 2 strike single up the middle.  Salas has been superb so far in the closers role, but still doesn’t possess top closer stuff, keep expectations in check.

Josh Tomlin – 6 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 7 K and earns his 7th win of the season.  Tomlin is slowly starting to regress, he has given up 10 ER his last 2 starts.  We all knew Tomlin wasn’t a sub 3 ERA pitcher, but he should be fantasy relevant all year.

Brian McCann – 2 for 3 with a double and RBI.  Yup, that McCann telling you hes the best fantasy catcher in baseball!

Jose Reyes – Expected back in the lineup on Thursday.  It’s about time, you’re killing my week, Reyes!

Nelson Cruz – 3 for 4 with an RBI and stolen base. Now these are the things fantasy owners were expecting when they drafted Cruz in the late 3rd round, early 2nd.
