Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 7

Edwin Encarnacion

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

Josh Beckett (SP), Boston Red Sox

The overpriced righty found himself in familiar territory as he landed on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain.

Jimmy Rollins (SS), Philadelphia Phillies

Rollins is once again on the DL with yet another calf strain. Remember when Rollins used to have value?

Brad Penny (SP), St. Louis Cardinals

Penny, who is having an amazing season, went the way of Josh Beckett as he too hit the DL with a back injury. Penny’s injury isn’t considered severe though.
