Fantasy Baseball News, Notes & Injuries: July 9 2014 – Manny Machado, Dillon Gee & Yadier Molina

Fantasy Sports Locker Room takes a closer look at last night’s Fantasy Baseball News, Notes and Injuries from around the majors – Twitter style.

Mark Teixeira and Troy Tulowitzki cashed in with the big Fantasy Baseball night with two home runs each.

Tulo, just feeling it this season. The shortstop has a ridiculous .433 batting average at Coors Field.

It was Kevin Kiermaier with the Fantasy Baseball stat line of the night, though. Chances are you don’t own him.

I actually rostered Kiermaier in an 18-man league for a week or so…He didn’t have nights like that. Owned in 5 percent of Y! leagues. Number may rise 1 or 2 percent, don’t contribute to that number. Great ball player, with a solid .297 average, but not what your Fantasy Baseball roster needs. Maybe soon, though.

It took some time, but Manny Machado had started to play good ball before serving a five game suspension and the time off didn’t seem to bother him…

Some say they don’t believe his doubles will turn into home runs…I am not one of them. I believe he is well on his way to becoming one the greatest in the game today, with POP!

FINALLY, Eric Hosmer starting to come around.

A .327 batting average with a .421 on base percentage over Hosmer’s last two weeks. He only has 4 RBI and one home run over that span which came last night, but he’s seeing the ball a lot better and should be able to fill out the other Fantasy Baseball categories in the second half of the season. Let’s not forget how good he was in last year’s second half. The 4th best in Fantasy!

I think he might be…

There is a chance, owners in your Fantasy Baseball league forgot about this guy because he’s been out for two months. If so, grab him. 33 percent owned in Y!

Just another home run for Kole Calhoun. 65 percent owned in Y! now. Don’t count on him slowing down, kid can hit. Plus, it really had been hard for Mike Trout, Albert Pujols or Josh Hamilton to fail hitting him home.

 

 

 

 

INJURIES

A few injuries around the bigs…

Yadier Molina sliding into third base…

Billy Hamilton grabbing his leg in the batters box…

Oh right Brandon Phillips plays baseball…That was rude of me! Injuries piling up in Cinci.

The latest on Masahiro Tanaka

And it looks like Alex Gordon is done until after the All-Star break.
