FANTASY BASEBALL – Reviewing Monday’s News, Notes & Injuries – Yordano Ventura, George Springer & Clay Buchholz


Chris Meaney takes a closer look at last night’s Fantasy Baseball News and Notes from around the majors – Twitter style.

George Springer take us away…

George Springer finished his night by going 4/4 at the plate, came around to score five times, had a homer and cashed in with three RBIs. The Astros rookie is starting to make a name for himself with home runs in four straight games. Let’s not forget he was a hair short of a 40/40 season in the minors. The 24-year-old can play and we’re seeing it now after a slow start to his big league career where he hit .170 in his first 12 games, but he has turned it up now. Springer is fun to watch! Grab him, 67 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues is not high enough. Trade for him, do what you have too! Just go get him. 




After Stanton and Springer, Ryan Howard cashed in with the best Fantasy Baseball line of the night while Pablo Sandoval stayed hot.


Sandoval now has four homers over his last six games. Lorenzo Cain, Conor Gillaspie and Khris Davis were perfect with the bats as they each finished 4-for-4 on the night. They combined for only three RBI while Everth Cabrera, David Ortiz and Derek Norris had four RBI each.

      A night after Josh Beckett spun a no-no, Hyun-jin Ryu almost one-upped him!

Then there’s this guy… Clay Buchholz.




This last tweet, by Pete Abraham is interesting. So who would get a shot in the Red Sox rotation if Buchholz gets the boot?

Keep an eye on Allen Webster, let’s not get crazy, but keep an eye!

A rough go for Erik Bedard as the Blue Jays rolled over the Rays 10-5 for their seventh straight win. Edwin Encarnacion is not going to be happy when the month of May is over.

At last, a win for Jeff Samardzija

And a loss job for Jose Valverde. We may never see him pitch in the bigs again!




Certainly a scare for all Yordano Ventura owners. I was up all night thinking about it, not going to lie.



Ventura and the Royals may have dodged a bullet, but you have to think Tommy John could possibly be in his future because of how hard he throws the baseball. I’m all in on Ventura, own him across the board and I’m worried about the possibility of something serious happening to him down the road. Josh Hamilton had a minor setback.
