Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 14

Madison Bumgarner

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

Yovani Gallardo (SP), Milwaukee Brewers

Just in time for the All-Star break, the young gun landed on the DL with a right oblique strain.

Jake Peavy (SP), Chicago White Sox

Peavy was finally turning a corner with a 1.75 ERA in June, but his season is likely over after leaving his last start with shoulder pains which turned out to be a detached muscle. The injury will require season-ending surgery, so drop Peavy in your leagues.

Adrian Beltre (3B), Boston Red Sox

Beltre, one of the leading hitters in the A.L. with a .330 avg, left Sunday’s game with a strained hamstring. No word on how long he’ll be out.
