postheadericon CHOO TAKING BP!!

Shin-Soo Choo – Will take BP this week.  From all reports Choo is ahead of schedule and is hoping to return in about 2 weeks.

Cliff Pennington – In a non fantasy  baseball related incident, Pennington has been diagnosed with Bells Palsy.  Keep Pennington in your prayers.

Mike Stanton – 2 for 5 with a walk off grand slam.  Stanton is putting up elite power numbers and will be a force to reckon with for years to come.

Jonathan Sanchez – Activated from the 15 day DL and will start on Friday against the Phillies.  I would not start him.

Asdrubal Cabrera – 3 for 5 with 2 home runs, 4 RBI, 3 runs scored.  Someone needs to tell me where all this power is coming from.  Asdrubal will be overrated next year.

Derrek Lee – 2 for 4 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI in his first game as a Pirate.  Lee is still not a mix league add quite yet, but a few more games like this and he will be.

Starlin Castro – 3 for 5 Monday and now has 9 hits in his last 7 games.  Castro continues to improve, and will at some point be an elite fantasy shortstop, maybe even next year.

Aramis Ramirez – Was held out of the lineup Monday with a sore quad.  He is listed as day to day and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

Ryan Madson – Pitched the 10th inning Monday and got the save.  Bastardo pitched the 9th, which leads me to believe that Bastardo is still the leading candidate for saves.
