Razzball Ambulance Chasers: Gabriel Extra-oh-no!

Pleased Saturday, Razzballers!

I hope you had a unbelievable week and have an ever higher weekend on the horizon.

I’m going to observe the White Sox in individual for the primary time in virtually two months as a result of, fairly frankly, they’re miserable (particularly because the trades unfold).

In White Sox-related information that isn’t miserable, my fellow Sox fan Mike Couillard and non-Sox buddy Jeremy Brewer began a brand new Razzball podcast known as “Playing cards & Classes”. The pod focuses on fantasy baseball and, properly, playing cards. Give it a pay attention!

I do know what you’re right here for. So, let’s go forward and get to it!

Notable Accidents: Week of July 21-28

Kris Bryant (OF, COL)

Right here is me each time Kris Bryant reveals up on the IL:

Leonardo DiCaprio pointing at tv.

Bryant is again on the IL with a fractured left index finger by way of HBP. Fractured fingers normally take 3-4 weeks to heal. Bryant will probably be out till at the very least August 18.  This harm is off the heels, pun supposed, of a left heel contusion that stored Bryant out round a month.

The Rockies have Brenton Doyle, Jurickson Profar, and Randal Grichuk within the outfield. Randal Grichuk (who could find yourself with the Yankees) has made a pleasant run within the final month. In his final 61 PA, he’s hitting .345/.377/.586. He at the moment has a 113 wRC+.

Aaron Hicks (OF, BAL)

Aaron Hicks’ post-Yankee profession, which started as a resurgence, was placed on maintain by a strained hamstring. Hicks sustained the harm making a catch. Hicks has lately struggled on the plate once more with only one hit in 14 PA.

In Hicks’ and Cedric Mullins’ absence, Baltimore has Ryan McKenna accessible to play within the outfield (together with Anthony Santander, Austin Hays, and Colton Coswer). McKenna has been hitting .259/.319/.395 within the majors thus far.

One OF who could also be accessible is Cincinnati’s Will Benson. In 64 AB, Benson is hitting .328/.419/.672 with 21 hits and 4 HR.

Gabriel Moreno (C, ARI)

Moreno is out with lingering shoulder irritation. In his first full season of the majors, Moreno is slashing .270/.316/.360 over 244 PA. Moreno was traded to the Diamondbacks final 12 months, and he has not been fairly as sensible as Arizona might need anticipated. A nagging harm may clarify that. Carson Kelly will function the beginning catcher for Arizona.

Should you want a catcher explicitly, Detroit’s Jake Rogers could also be accessible in your league. Rogers has been on somewhat run with 3 HR and walks his final 66 PA.

Jose Trevino (C, NYY)

It’s a two-catcher harm week! Trevino has had a nagging wrist harm (a ligament tear) the whole season, and his season sunsets with wrist surgical procedure.

I’d think about you didn’t have Trevino, however simply in case, I already talked about Jake Rogers above. Yan Gomes may be an alternative choice. Gomes is hitting .278/.325/.444 in his final 72 AB and is simply 40% rostered.

Jesse Winker (OF, MIL)

Winker is on the 10-day IL with again spasms. Winker has had a tough season (his worst ever, the truth is) with a BA of .199 and wRC+ of 66.

Sal Frelick has emerged lately with an honest splash, batting .417/.588/.667 in 12 AB. It’s unsure and no assure (in any respect!), that he’ll preserve performing like this, however hey, for those who had Winker, why not?

Different Accidents

A couple of different gamers hit the IL during the last week:

  • Matt Barnes (RP, MIA), hip surgical procedure
  • Mason Englert (RP, DET), hip tightness
  • Luis Guillorme (INF, NYM), strained calf
  • Tucupita Marcano (INF/OF, MIA), knee harm
  • Francisco Mejia (C, TBR), sprained knee
  • AJ Pollock (OF, SEA), strained hamstring
  • Nick Pratto (1B/OF, KC),

Lastly, except you’ve been doing one thing cooler than watching baseball (sipping a coconut on a seaside, saving puppies, and so forth.), you in all probability noticed that Jose Altuve, Yordan Alvarez, and Aaron Decide are again. The AL simply received somewhat hotter as a lot because the AL is able to in these attempting occasions. The persons are asking if baseball is again.

Have a fantastic MLB Commerce Deadline, everybody! See you subsequent week.
