Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 3

Chase Headley

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

Manny Ramirez (LF), L.A. Dodgers

Just Manny being Manny, I guess. The former Sox stud re-aggravated a calf strain last week and hit the 15-day DL.

Brad Hawpe (RF), Colorado Rockies

After leaving Saturday’s game against the Marlins with a leg injury, further inspection revealed a strained left quad. The injury was severe enough to land him on the DL.

Carlos Guillen (LF), Detroit Tigers

Guillen on the DL? The hell you say! Well, it’s true, and this time it is a strained left hamstring. Please try not to be shocked.
