Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 2

Ty Wigginton

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

Jimmy Rollins (SS), Philadelphia Phillies

Everyone’s favorite overrated Shortstop took a trip to the DL last week with a strained right calf. Shane Victorino has been hitting in the leadoff spot since Rollins’ injury.

Aaron Rowand (CF), San Francisco Giants

In the most painful injury of the past week, Rowand took a Vicente Padilla fastball to the face and wound up with a fractured cheek bone. He will miss the next 3-5 weeks.

Conor Jackson (1B, OF), Arizona Diamondbacks

Just when he was starting to make a comeback, he suffers a strained hamstring. He was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday.
