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…

MLB News and Notes: Week of April 30

Now that the pesky diversion called the NFL Draft is over, fantasy owners and fans can now get back to the matter at hand: baseball. Shohei Ohtani, everyone's favorite two-way player, appeared to sustain an ankle injury after running out a ground ball and trying to avoid a collision with Neil Walker at first base. He already has his scheduled pitching start for Tuesday pushed back and did not start in Sunday's game against the Yankees.  Nick Tropeano is currently listed as the Angels’ starter for Tuesday.

However, the outfield position is so deep and there's no way I could fit in all I want/need to write about each player into just one article, so I decided to break up the outfield into three separate articles. In this article, we'll break down outfielders ranked 26-50. A lot of these players come with some sort of concern, whether it's injuries, track record, or lack of experience. However, there's no debating the talent each player possesses. After…

MLB Fantasy Baseball: April in Review – To Believe or Not to Believe…

As the final week of the first month of the '17 season winds down we should begin to evaluate what we have witnessed here in the last 30 days. There is an old cliche in baseball that I'm not sure who gets credit for coining, but it goes something like, "Championships aren't won in April, but they can be lost". Meaning you can dig yourself such a large hole in the beginning of the season you may just not be able to get out of it. Which in fact can be a direct contradiction of another favorite quote, "The season is a marathon…
