Medical Corner: Cueto, Ray, Buxton, Eaton, and More Injury Updates

Johnny Cueto, San Francisco Giants/Jordan Montgomery, New York Yankees Call it forearm tightness or elbow inflammation; semantics don't matter. These two players find themselves in danger of Tommy John surgery. Both are shut down for now and could be at least a month away from pitching if they receive good news. For Cueto, this problem stems back to July 2017 when he missed significant time in July and August with a similar injury. Montgomery said he has experienced mild elbow pain in the past and didn't expect to miss much…

Medical Corner: Bogaerts, Suarez, Myers, Knebel

My projected return dates are based on medical protocols, established rehabilitation guidelines, and evidence-based data.

You have to love the fact that the beginning of baseball season is one of the signs that spring is here. Unless, of course, you live in one of the parts of the country where it's 3o degrees and snowing. So let's pull the shades down, put on some baseball, and pretend like spring is here. Sometimes, it takes pitchers a little while to warm up, and that can take a toll on a team's pitching staff. So far in 2018, we’ve seen three position players take the mound. Phillies center fielder Pedro Florimon became the first…

Bronze Points Ownership Report and New Player Claims

I’m old enough to remember when you would have no idea where your team stood in the standings until at least a week or two into the season. In a way, we were almost better off. Nowadays, you can see live standings from the first day of the season on. When I woke up on Friday and saw I was in last place in my Fantrax Roto league, I had to laugh.
