postheadericon THE SURGING UGGLA!

Dan Uggla – Extended his hitting streak to 28 games with a single late in the game Sunday.  Uggla is absolutely surging right now, I mean come on, we all knew he wasn’t going to continue to play as bad as his first half…Right?

Brett Lawrie – 3 for 7 over the weekend with a home run and a run scored.  Lawrie has been impressive thus far, but don’t expect this to continue.  This is Lawries first taste of the big leagues, he will struggle at times.  He should be owned in all leagues.

Jose Reyes – After stealing 2 bases on Saturday, Reyes goes down with another hamstring injury.  The Mets said the injury isn’t too serious, but who can believe those guys.

Alex Rodriguez – Could rejoin the Yankees on a road trip that begins August 15th.  Arod has begun hitting and taking groundballs and could start a rehabnd

Jesus Montero – Will most likely be promoted on September 1st when the rosters expand.  If you have the room to stash Montero on your bench, I’d go ahead and do it now.

Jorge Posada – Will starting losing some at bats due to struggles.  Its been said he will no longer face right handers, expect to soon hear, “Posada regulated to spot starts and pinch hits.”  If for some reason you own Posada, drop him.

Carlos Beltran – Suffered a sprained right wrist Sunday.  Consider him day to day, the Giants don’t view this as a DL type of situation and could be back in the lineup as of Monday.

Stephen Strasburg – Threw an inning and a third Sunday allowing 1 ER and 3 hits and consistently threw in the upper 90’s.  I don’t think we see Strasburg this year, and even if we do how effective will he be?  No reason to hold on to him.

Victor Martinez – Skipper Jim Leyland believes Vmart could be back on Tuesday.  I think Leyland has been hitting the bottle a little too hard, Vmart returning from an injury this quick? HA!
