Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo has plantar fasciitis

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 08:29:42 -0700

In addition to the stress fracture in his left foot, Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo's (foot) MRI exam showed plantar fasciitis that he had been dealing with since spring training. Trumbo thinks he developed the stress fracture while overcompensating due to the plantar fasciitis. "The plantar (fasciitis) at times has been pretty bad but manageable," Trumbo said. "That's what you have to do. You've got to earn a living and play. This was to the point where I severely had to compensate running-wise to the point where I probably wouldn't be much of an asset on either side." Trumbo need 5 1/2 months to heal from a stress fracture in his right foot at the end of the 2011 season, but he doesn't think this is as bad.

FANTASY TIP: The combination of a stress fracture and plantar fasciitis does not bode well for Trumbo. Just look at how foot injuries crippled slugger Albert Pujols last season. Expect Trumbo to be out for a good chunk of time, and when he does return, it could affect him for the rest of the season.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sits

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:52:58 -0700

Dodgers | Zack Greinke dominant

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:46:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 11 to beat the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 23.

FANTASY TIP: He has 40 strikeouts against 5 walks in 29 1/3 innings. Take notice of his surge.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse business as usual

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:43:06 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse allowed a run on five hits and struck out five in seven innings to beat the San Diego Padres Wednesday, April 23.

FANTASY TIP: Lohse is predominately an underrated fantasy hurler whose low K-rate scares owners away from him. Early on, he has 31 strikeouts in 34 innings to go with this 4-1 record, 2.38 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. His 8.21 K/9 is considerably higher than the 5.66 K/9 he had last year. Shop him and see if you can cash in on that probably unsustainable K-rate.

Indians | Michael Bourn sitting

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:32:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is out of the lineup Thursday, April 24.

Twins | Chris Colabello delivering

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:28:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Chris Colabello drove in four runs Wednesday, April 23. He leads the league with 26 RBIs.

FANTASY TIP: Colabello is a tricky fantasy asset. He's a 30-year-old journeyman that the average fantasy owner knows little about. You could keep him and hope this advanced-age surge is for real or sell high and earn a profit from your waiver claim or low draft pick.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:25:23 -0700
