Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 5

Aaron Rowand

In the new look of the Wrap-Up, I will highlight the hot and cold players at each position. Why hear about how good the stud players are already doing when you can find out how well the widely available players are performing on the diamond? As always, let’s start with the list of key injuries. 

Injuries

Curtis Granderson (CF), New York Yankees

Granderson’s first season in the Bronx is already leading to injuries. He was put on the DL with a strained left groin.

Nick Johnson (1B), New York Yankees

Yankee #2 for this injury report as Johnson also hit the DL, only he is suffering from a sore right wrist.

Edgar Renteria (SS), San Francisco Giants

The former Sox great (ok, not really) was added to the 15-day DL after suffering a groin strain.
