Fantasy News Flash: Josh Hamilton Out for Two Months

Josh Hamilton

Reigning A.L. MVP Josh Hamilton will miss the next eight weeks after suffering a broken shoulder in Tuesday afternoon’s loss to Detroit. In what is being called a controversial play, Hamilton was sent to home plate from 3rd base by his third base coach during a shallow pop up near home plate. Hamilton slid head first and fractured his upper right arm. It is a huge loss for owners who took Hamilton with a very high pick and now they see it wasted on a play that could have been avoided.

Analysis

Former Red Sox OF David Murphy looks to benefit the most from Hamilton’s injury. Murphy is batting .417 with a home run, 3 RBI, and 2 SB in 4 games. Also look for Mitch Morelandto see increased playing time as well. To fill the empty roster spot, everyone’s favorite Ranger prospect, Chris Davis, was called up from Triple-A.
