Jose Reyes Rib Fracture


Original Story 4/17

The Toronto Blue Jays just found out that SS Jose Reyes has a fractured rib and they could place him on the DL.  It is possible to play through, but painful.  Reyes is off to a nice start, hitting .324 with 3 doubles and 5 RBI.  It looks like Ryan Goins will play SS for the Blue Jays.  Devon Travis or Dalton Pompey will have to hit leadoff, which is a good thing, batting in front of Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista.

Jose Iglesias is a nice option to replace the speed of Jose.  He is 4-4 stealing bases, hitting in a powerful Tigers lineup and owns a .533 OBP at the moment!  He is owned in just 52% of Yahoo leagues, but 68% of ESPN.

Other options are Brock HoltJed Lowrie and Tim Beckham who will gain 2B eligibility soon, as Asdrubal Cabrera is the Rays everyday SS.

Homer Bailey Watch - Right Elbow Ligament Sprain

After making just two starts this year, the Cincinnati Reds might be without starting pitcher Homer Bailey for the long term. Bailey has a right elbow ligament sprain that could require Tommy John Surgery and would mean he would miss the rest of the 2015 season, as well as part of the 2016 season.

Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias are two pitchers the Reds will look to fill Bailey's role in the rotation. Cincinnati Reds Logo

Dodgers Lose Brandon McCarthy for Season

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been hit with another injury. This time it's pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who will miss the rest of the 2015 season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. McCarthy will have to undergo Tommy John Surgery, which will cost him part of the 2016 season as well.

McCarthy was 3-0 this year with a 5.87 ERA. He struck out 29 batters in 23 innings.

Dodgers Place Yasiel Puig on the DL

With Hyun-Jin Ryu still out, the Dodgers will stick with Scott Baker and Mike Bolsinger or they'll have to go out and explore a trade with another team. Los Angeles Dodgers Logo
