Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 9

Cody Ross

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

Brett Anderson (SP), Oakland A’s

The young lefty, having a stellar season (2.35 ERA), was put on the DL with elbow inflammation.

Takashi Saito (RP), Atlanta Braves

A solid reliever this season, Saito landed on the 15-day DL due to a left hamstring strain.

Doug Fister (SP), Seattle Mariners

I only mentioning him here because he has the absolute dirtiest name in baseball. He was actually having an impressive season (2.45 ERA in 10 starts) until shoulder fatigue put him on the DL.
