Alex Rodriguez – Jogging on an elliptical and in a pool and appears to be on pace to return around mid August.

Chipper Jones – Was pulled from Mondays game with a strained right quad.  He stayed in the game after he initially hurt it and then later homered.  It was said he was pulled for precautionary reasons.  Should we expect anything other than another DL stint?

Kevin Youkilis – Felt tightness in his hamstring Monday and will likely be out of the lineup on Tuesday.  A DL stint is still a possibility.

James McDonald – 5.1 IP, 0 ER, 9 K while picking up his 7th win of the season.  McDonalds ERA by month, April: 7.66, May: 2.86, June 3.76, July: 1.90.  You know what this means right?  Yup, you should own him!

Erik Bedard – Expected to come off the DL Friday against Tampa Bay.  I still don’t think a knee injury is what has kept him out this long.

Michael Brantley – 2 for 3 with a steal and a walk.  Brantley appears to be on one of those hot streaks again, if hes out there on the FA wire go get him.

Texas Offense – 20 runs on 27 hits, on nights like this you just hope that you own someone on this team.  Hopefully the lone person no one owned was Chris Davis who only went 1 for 6. 

Desmond Jennings – 6 for 11 since being called up with 3 SBs.  I hope you all picked him up when you had the chance!  Don’t expect much power out of him but the steals are for real.
