Curtis Granderson left last night’s game in the fifth inning after being hit by a pitch on the hand and fracturing his knuckle. The Yankees expect Grandy to miss at least four weeks so obviously this is a big blow to fantasy owners who just got him back a little over a week ago. Some luck, if you remember correctly it was a HBP in the forearm that sent him to the DL back in March. Someone has to invest in some new armor for Granderson, I recommended Barry Bonds’ metal-plated sleeve, but chainmail is always nice as well. Anyway, these are the breaks. Curtis Blow said that, and Curtis Granderson is living it. He was batting .269 through eight games but already had a home run, a stolen base and a couple of three hit games so the outlook was promising. Thems the breaks, right Curtis!? In the interim, I guess we can expect Ichiro or Vernon Wells to continue to see plenty of playing time, and Brennan Boesch should see plenty of burn as well, but I don’t see much value with Boesch outside AL-Only. Don’t be too sad, Yankee fans, you were doing just fine without him. Maybe Curtis Mayfield said it even better, “you’re gonna make your fortune by and by, but if you lose don’t ask no questions why.” Superfly! In other words, I’m sure there’s a deal-with-it gif on the googles or the tumblrs out there for you to look at (here, here and here), but the three Curtis’ have already moved on so hopefully you can, too.

Here’s what else happened in fantasy baseball last night:

Anibal Sanchez  9.0 IP, 1 hit, 3 BB, 12 K. Aniballin’ outta control! Props to E-40 and raul for that one. Strictly Aniballer status last night as Anibal carried a no hitter into the ninth before Joe Mauer ruined everything with his one-out single (it was the third no-no Mauer’s broken up). Anibal has four shutouts with one one hit or fewer in his career, the most among all active starters, and trust me when I say he’s in good company there. Sanchez takes his sparkling 2.38 and 80/17 K/BB ratio into his start next week versus Pittsburgh.This is the same guy that struck out 17 Braves last month, so clearly we could be in for a treat whenever he takes the mound. Anibal Sanchez has arrived, I’m just upset I was on the bandwagon a year early. I need to give even more props to razzball’s own Big Biscuit JB Gilpin for recommending you start Sanchez in your daily draftkings.com leagues. Nailed it, BB!

Francisco Rodriguez  0.1 IP and the save. K-Rod finished the game for Jim Henderson, who left with a hamstring injury after recording the first two outs. Definitely worth a speculative add for saves if Henderson is set to miss any substantial amount of time. This bullpen is real bad and Rodriguez is far from the worst option, but he’s the baddest. Manager Ron Roenicke said they’d employee a committee of K-Rod, John Axford and Michael Gonzalez in Henderson’s absence, but I’d grab K-Rod of the bunch.

David Phelps  7.2 IP, 6 hits, 4 ER, 3 K. Still managed his third win as New York scored 8 runs on 11 hits. Phelps suffered a forearm contusion after being hit by a line drive and left the game. The x-rays came back negative and he is likely to make his next start. Grey told you to BUY him and he gets the Mets next week at home. I feel like those Mets/Yankees games are always unpredictable so I’d play this one cautiously, but I do like him going forward.

Andy Dirks  3-for-5, run. Available in 30% of RCL leagues and as long as Austin Jackson is injured and he’s leading off he has value. You know what else has value? Diamonds. One million diamonds, Michael!

Nick Markakis  3-for-5, 3 RBI as he led off and extended his hitting streak to nine games. Sparkakis is as boring as they come, in fact I’m falling asleep writing about him, but to be fair that could just me coming down from all that adderall. But, even I raise an eyebrow if he’s leading off. Unfortunately, Nate MClouth had the night off and will likely resume his spot at the top of the order when he returns.

J.J. Hardy  1-for-5, HR, 3 RBI. Batted third and took advantage. Batting in the heart of this line up is a pretty nice place to play but let’s see if J.J. capitalizes on it. Just about everyone had a day last night as the Jay’s and O’s faced off in an epic Alphabattle.  Adam Jones was 2-for-5 with a HR as he returned to the outfield and Danny Valencia was 2-for-5 with a HR and 2 RBI. Chris Davis was 3-for-4 and Chris “The Dish”  served up his league-leading 16th home run! The mad fat pitch killer! Snoochy boochies!

Adam Lind  3-for-5 with his 4th HR. Grey told you to BUY him but really the HitterTron called this one. There’s only one logical explanation for this — it’s a wiiiiiitch! Burn all the machines! SkyNet is here! Quick, someone call John Connor!

Melky Cabrera  2-for-5, 2nd HR, 2 RBI. Jays weren’t about to let the O’s have all the fun, they scored just 6 runs but managed a whopping 17 hits! Jose Bautista had 3 hits and Colby Rasmus and Edwin Encarnacion had 2 hits a piece but were no match for the mighty Orioles in this bird fight.

Joey Votto  2-for-4, HR. His second straight game with a jack and his fourth homer in the past seven games. It took a while but the power has arrived, and it’s been glorious! Don’t ever change back to early season Votto, Joey. I like you this way.

Brandon Phillips  2-for-4, HR, 2 RBI. Phillips ranks third in RBIs in the league behind Chris Davis and some guy name “Mig-uel Ca-bre-ra.” Not bad coming from probably the worst position in fantasy.

Garrett Richards  1.2 IP, 1 hit, 2 K and notched his first save. Ernesto Frieri had the night off after ruining your head-to-head match up Thursday night and Richards filled in and grabbed the save. I don’t think Ernesto has a very long leash, but I definitely think he still gets the next chance.

Mike Trout  2-for-4 with his 11th SB. Remember when you thought you maybe shouldn’t have drafted him so high? No? Me neither. Thems days are behind us. Trout is the first player to reach the 10-10 benchmark and had two slam & legs in the past week. Just as the wise old Catatafish foretold, the prophecy has come to pass.

Alberto Callaspo  2-for-4, RBI. Alberto has a four game hitting streak and it seems like all the Angels bats have finally woken up at the same time like we all thought they would (except for Josh Hamilton, THAT guy has some serious issues, geez!). Considering what’s out there at third base, Callaspo could be worth a look in deeper formats.

Marco Estrada  7.0 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER, 8 K. Walked none. Estrada is my fantasy K-ryptonite, jut when I think I am done with him I am picking him up again after shutting down the Pirates. Sigh. It’s a vicious cycle.

A.J. Burnett  7.0 IP, 3 hits, 2 ER, 6 K. How is this happening? Trails only Yu Darvish in strikeouts with 85, and has a sweet 2.57 ERA to boot! I wish I owned him somewhere so I could sell him high.

Tommy Milone  7.0 IP, 5 ER, 6 K. Milone was cruising along before giving up 2 HRs in the fifth inning. Holy Schnikes, Tommy Boy! It was the Lastros! Look what you’ve done! You are on notice, sir!

Chris B. Young  3-for-5, 2 runs, 3-run HR in the ninth inning. Sure, Krispie’s .189 batting average is frightening as all get out, but the five homers and five steals definitely raise an eyebrow. You can always use more homers and steals, yo!

Jose Veras  1.0 IP, 3 ER, BS. Well honestly, what did you expect? The Kimbrel? Aroldis Chapman did that. And Jose Veras is no Aroldis Chapman.

John Danks  6.0 IP, 4 hits, 3 ER, 5 K. Nice, but it was the MIA Marlins. For realsies, I wouldn’t own this guy with Miami’s team. And they could use the pitching!

Paul Konerko  3-for-5, RBI. HE’S ALIVE! Nothing like a series with the Marlins to get you out of your funk.

Kris Medlen  6.0 IP, 7 hits, 3 ER, 9 K. It seems like he had been saving all his strikeouts up for this game. I’ll take it!

Brandon McCarthy  7.0 IP, 7 base runners, 1 ER, 2 K. Another one of Grey’s BUYs this week. The scoreless streak ends but B-Mac manages his second win in a row and his fourth straight quality start. One earned run in the past 24 innings is certainly nothing to sneeze at, unless you’re allergic to low ratios. I tweeted him to ask if I should start him in Arlington next week and he DMed me a series of clues starting with locating an ancient talisman. When I’m finished finding the talisman, then reciting the sorcerer’s song and solving the clues I’ll let you know whether to start him or not.

A.J. Pollock  3-for-4, run, RBI. Led off for the Snakes and with Adam Eaton suffering another set back A.J. could be in line for plenty of playing time. Pollock could be worth the add, especially if you need a modernist painting.

Michael Cuddyer  2-for-4 with his 8th HR and 3 RBI. Now that is exactly how you’re supposed to return from the DL. Way to be, Cuddy.

Dominic Brown  2-for-3, run, RBI. Grey told you to BUY him like a million times and I think Razznation is finally starting to listen. 100% RCL ownership. We did it! Dom’s got power, some average, some speed, some runs and RBIs. That’s what Brown can do for you.

Allen Craig  2-for-4 with his 3rd HR, 3 RBI. I feel like I was just talking about his second home run. Oh wait. I was last week. At this rate of one homer a week, he’ll catch up to the big dogs in no time.

Lance Lynn  6.0 IP, 3 base runners, 9 K and his 7th win. *Fantasy Pro Tip!* Draft Cardinals pitchers. These guys know how to win, but David Freese‘s 2-run HR, and 3 RBI in his return to the line up certainly couldn’t have hurt. Freese frame!

David Murphy  1-for-2 with a pinch hit 2-run single. Grey told you to BUY him and Murph’s always been a favorite of mine, too. Choosing free agents, when in doubt I always go with the guy who plays his home game in Texas or Colorado.

John Lackey  7.0 IP, 5 base runners, 0 ER, 5 K and his third win. The Red Sox scored eight runs to help him out, including a 3-run homer from Mike Carp. Lackey lowers his ERA to 2.72 and at just 16% ownership in RCL leagues he could be worth a play next week in Philadelphia. I am so going to regret saying that.

Justin Masterson  6.0 IP, 5 ER, 5K. Yeah, we knew this was coming. The regression train is pulling up to the station. All aboooard! Next stop: Dropsville?

Jose Iglesias  1-for-3, 2 K. Started at third base as Will Middlebrooks hit the DL. Jose started the season hot, batting .450 in six games but was sent down when Stephen Drew returned. He was also pretty dreadful in his time in the majors in 2012. He won’t help much in power or speed departments, but he could be worth a look if your desperate at 3B, and his SS eligibility makes him a tad more intriguing.

Mark Reynolds  1-for-3, 2 K, SB. I had a dream last week that Mark Reynolds hit five home runs in a single game. FIVE HOME RUNS! I didn’t dream I was there, or that he hit them for me or anything (I’m not a freak), I just dreamed that it had happened. I woke up in sweats and immediately checked my phone. I don’t own him anywhere, and have little faith in my soothsaying ways but its worth mentioning only because of how concerned my family and friends were for my well being. Never tell anyone your dreams people, even if they include record-setting performances. And for the record I never could have dreamed he’d steal a base. Grey told you to SELL, and I have to agree. He may be the third baseman of my dreams, but I see many more 0-for-5 games than 5-homer games in his future.

    H2H points league. I need pitching. Thinking of offering Marte for Scherzer. Who else do I need to add to try and make this a fair deal. He is pretty weak in the outfield and just lost Granderson (again).

    Other players I could consider adding:

    Morrow, Teheran, Arenado or Gerrit Cole

    Other pitchers he has that might interest me: Gio and Ian Kennedy

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @malamoney: If you can get Scherzer or Gio for Marte and one of the players you listed I’d say its a nice trade for you no matter who the other player is. I’d try to hang on to Arenado if I could and I don’t want any part of Ian Kennedy.

          @Alex: Pierre is probably your best bet for steals but not much else.

  5. low walk high k says:

    Who would u rather roster? McCarthy or Estrada ros. Dynasty league so my bench spots are limited

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @low walk high k: Estrada will probably have more strikeouts and a better chance of staying healthy but I’d still go with Brandon McCarthy.

  6. Yager says:
    (link)

    How did I do?

    I give D. Ortiz, and D. Nava

    I get M. Holliday and B. Belt

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Yager: I have a soft spot for big papi but a good trade for both sides. Belt has the 1B eligibility and big upside and Holliday is a lock for 20 more homers and 70 rbis, and has a lot better chance of staying healthy than Oritz.

      • Yager says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants:

        Grey facilitated the trade with his “buy” of Brandon Belt that I read this morning. I like Ortiz, but I am on the Belt bandwagon, and have Stanton on the DL in the OF.

  7. Pub says:
    (link)

    Who wins trade

    Wainwright grilli, Ike, swisher, erick aybar or cashner, Doolittle , a Gonzalez, Gordon, altuve

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Pub: I prefer the Agone/Gordon/Altuve side but the best player in the trade is Adam Wainwright

  8. Doc Pounder says:
    (link)

    Dan Murphy or Gyorko ROS?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Doc Pounder: I’m all in on jedd gyorko!

      • @Dan Pants: Gyorko all day. Expecting even better numbers as the summer heats up. Besides his name’s too much fun to say!

  9. nightpandas says:

    Who do you like at 1B for the rest of the year? Only have 12 moves left in my 15 team, keep 9

    Option 1 Keep Carter
    Option 2 swap for Konerko or Alonso
    Option 3 try and trade Segura for Rizzo (also have Rollins, who has zero trade value)

    • Wallpaper Paterson says:
      (link)

      @nightpandas: option 3

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @nightpandas: If you can’t pull off a segura for rizzo trade I’d gamble that Paul Konerko returns to form somewhat and go with him. Definitely like Rizzo the most of the bunch though.

  10. Ernie says:
    (link)

    Time to pick up Puig?

    Hi Dan,

    Thinking it might be time to lose Kendrick…I’m top 3 in ERA,K, WHIP and K/9 and middle of the pack in W and SV. With Kendo’s spot, would you add another SP from:

    Estrada
    Phelps
    Teheran
    Cashner

    or go with a speculative closer add like K-Rod?

    Thanks!

    • @J-Lef: Drop Kendrick in a heartbeat. He’s pitching above his head. Estrada is pitching below his capabilities and Teheran is rounding into his pre-season but may lose out when Beachy returns. K-Rod has gret upside but have your antacids ready.

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @J-Lef: I really like Andrew Cashner but if you need wins Teheran or Phelps might be a safer bet. I’d like to know if Henderson will miss any time before picking up K-rod but you might not have that luxury, I’d pick up k-rod now you can usually find a good starting pitcher on waivers.

      • J-Lef says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: your reasoning is sound. Thanks!

  13. 16 team league, if you could add one do you take Wheeler or Beachy for ROS? Also, hang onto Profar or add Grandal. Only start one 2B and I’m using Gyorko. Many teams desparate for catcher, Grandal could be a good trade chip if he can get close to pre-PED numbers. Thoughts?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @vulture: I’d want Wheeler over Beachy just slightly based on health alone but I think Beachy has a much higher upside this year pitching for the Braves. I think you have to stick with Profar a little longer.

  14. The badger says:
    (link)

    Who do you like the rest of the way?

    Nava or d brown?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @The badger: Domonic Brown

  15. Mariner Mike says:
    (link)

    Do you think a Harvey for Joey Bats is a fair deal? Have Kershaw,Ryu,Sherzer,Corbin, Samarja, Harvey,Gausman, with Wheeler stashed. He turned me down on a Corbin for Joey Bats, pitching seems fine but offense needs lots of help. Any suggestions?

    • Mariner Mike says:
      (link)

      @Mariner Mike: 10 team league

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Mariner Mike: I think you need to offer more than Harvey to get Votto, he is a top 10 player.

          Dan Pants says:

          @Mariner Mike: Yes, I think that’s right around the return you should be looking for Matt Harvey.

  16. smegma says:
    (link)

    Lost Rutledge and picked up Lowrie…thinking about a trade for SS. 12 team H2H points league – which trade do u like better and would you do either trade:

    1. Aramis Ramirez for Castro (other owner currently wants my machado but not selling him for Castro…he needs a 3B)

    2. AJ Burnett/Crisp for Zobrist (not sure other owner will go for this one but he needs OF and SP help)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. I’d take Starlin Castro 2. I’d take Zobrist, but it’s simply fair

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @smegma: I agree with Grey, both trades work for your team.

  17. desert_heat says:

    C.Gomez M.Scherzer for my R.Braun

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @desert_heat: I’d still want Ryan Braun here.

  18. ferris says:

    think dee gordon gets sent down once hanley is activated?

    like aaron hill to be aaron hill 2012 when he comes back?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @ferris: Unfortunately, yes I think gordon gets sent down when hanram returns, if not sooner. As for aaron hill, the set backs are concerning and any hand injury you have to worry if the power will still be there. However, considering whats out there at second base this year I definitely think he can still help your team, but I wouldn’t count on what you drafted him for.

  19. Mariner Mike says:
    (link)

    What would you think of a butler and harvey trade for jose bautista?

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Mariner Mike: I think that’s overpaying a bit.

    Was offered kemp for my choo and zobrist. Don’t really believe in kemp enough to do this but looking at my roster was is a legit offered you’d propose for kemp without killing my team? The team with kemp has holes all over his offense and he doesnt want pitching. Ihave an offered on the table giving Stanton for wainwright. I’d have to drop someone to accept that trade but instead I want to try to pry kemp away.

      Dan Pants says:

      @Ulysses: I think some combination of Marte and Laroche, Lawrie or Cuddyer should fair price for Kemp until he starts to show us something.

      • Ulysses says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: what do you think about trading for wainwright. I’d drop cashner to keep 2 bench bats. Was thinking about dropping laroche but he’s been hitting lately. Is losing Stanton hurting me?

        • Dan Pants

          Dan Pants says:
          (link)

          @Ulysses: Between goldschmidt and upton(s) i think you have enough power to spare Stanton. Wainwright is a stud for sure but I’m not sure your team needs him, he definitely wouldn’t hurt. I’d try to hold Laroche as well.

    • Ulysses says:
      (link)

      @Ulysses: @Ulysses: and the trades are with two different teams. I’d get wainwright from one team and work a 2 for 1 for kemp. Zobrist would be a starting point

  21. Eric W says:

    Lombardozi, Punto, Barney or Lemahieu at 2b? I refuse to capitalize the H in his name because screw him that’s why.

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Eric W: It’s actually the “m” that’s capitalized but I’m with you. If someone held a gun to my head and made me pick one, I’d be like, “chill dude, it’s just fantasy baseball,” and then I’d pick up Darwin Barney.

      • Eric W says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: Ha, well in that case maybe I will start capitalizing H. Thanks

    Should I be stashing Rutledge? I have no idea what the Rockies are doing.
    I could replace him with some other interesting stashes: Wheeler, Puig, Billy Hamilton, Cingrani, Tavarez. But I lack middle infield depth and have Tulo whos gonna miss time eventually and the best available MIs are Nick Punto and Mark Elllis.

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:

    So belt and brown seem to be buys… But do you drop bj upton for either?

    • Fister Furbush says:
      (link)

      @Ulysses:

      Drop BJ for Dom Brown. Kid’s been slugging lately and I wouldn’t be surprised if he hits 25 hr’s with an above average batting avg.

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Ulysses: Depends how deep your league is but Fister’s right, 10-12 team mixed league its probably time to let go if there’s better options available.

    Trade 1:
    Give Holliday

      @Ron:

      I like your trade fever, but I’d hold.

      Stanton’s walks are WAY up in the amount of games he has played in, and that’s because pitchers aren’t giving him ANYTHING to hit because they want to pitch to to any one else on in that line up.

      Holliday is about as consistent as it gets, hits in a really good line up and heats up in a hurry. i wouldn’t trade stanton for Holliday, and i wouldnt trade Fowler and Beachy for Cruz.

      @Ron: I agree with wild thang, outside of dynasty/keeper leagues I’d stick with what you have.

    Are people buying into the Jeff Locke hype? He’s been killing it, but I don’t think I can pick him up in a 10 team shallow league where my pitching is:

    Cole Hamels
    Gio Gonzalez
    Patrick Corbin
    Johnny Cueto
    Jake Peavy
    Yovani Gallardo
    AJ Burnett
    Kevin Gausman

    Andrew Cashner
    David Phelps Can’t drop these two b/c they are in my RP spots.

    What do you guys think?

      @Wild Thang:

      No way would I drop Gausman Burnett or Gallardo for Locke. The rest of your guys are undroppable. I’m not buying Locke over the long haul of the season. May be good for another few weeks, but his numbers will be bad ROS, IMO.

      @Wild Thang: Agree with Dave, I’m not buying locke ROS.

    Do I go with Didi over Aybar?

      @Alex: The way he’s hitting I think you have to! Aybar is probably a better bet for steal but otherwise go with gregorius.

        @Dan Pants: aybar has 1 steal in 118 at bats.

    1) limited moves league (15left this year), 10 tm H2H, which LF/CF for ROS–Crisp or McLouth?
    2) same league, rather than use a move, offer Zobrist (2B/SS/RF) for Holliday? What about for Marte? Zobrist is on my bench (blocked by Cano, Segura and Heyward) but his versatility and skills are valuable in our format.
    3) different league, competitive for saves; Betancourt blue himself last night, but he’s back. Time to drop Brothers, or hold in case Betancourt’s still hurt?

      Dan Pants says:

      @Steve Stevenson: 1. I’d want Crisp, despite injury concerns. 2. I’d hold onto Zobrist, he has his hot streaks and the multiple positions will come in handy. 3. Rafael, you blowhard! Yeah, time to drop Brothers, he didn’t look any better last night go with Betancourt.

    Thinking of dropping K.KENDRICK. Which of these arms do you like the best ROS. Or should i stand pat with Kendrick M.ESTRADA, A.PETTITTE, J.PARKER, P.HUGHES, R.DETWILER
    I could also use the spot for a streamer like J.QUINTANA or D.STRAILLY for next week
    Thanks

      @JJ:
      I could also grab M.WACHA who looks like he may be starting this week

      • JJ says:

        @JJ:
        scratch that. Wacha was already snagged

        • Dan Pants

          Dan Pants says:
          (link)

          @JJ: I’d go with a streamer for now. Either stailly, parker or quintana are good options, I’d take no issue with you dropping kendrick for any of them.

    Piggybacking on this Wacha news, in an IP cap roto league, would you drop Wheeler for Wacha? Wacha advantages: earlier callup, wins potential/better team; Wheeler advantages: K/9, overall stuff. Keeper league, but neither would likely be kept on my team, though could be trade bait.

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d hold with wheeler for now.
