Shohei Ohtani’s harm will not be solely unhappy but additionally fascinating as a result of, even for the wisest of us, Ohtani appears to love a demi-god. It’s straightforward to neglect he’s inclined (much more so in some methods than different gamers) to severe harm. Nevertheless, it’s a good reminder that any of this will occur at any time, and also you should be ready. My condolences to managers who misplaced Ohtani for the remainder of the season. As for Ohtani himself, this new period will likely be attention-grabbing by way of adjustments in not solely his efficiency however adjustments in quantity and function.

That is going to be mentioned advert nauseam over the following yr or extra. So, let’s discuss another fellows and their accidents.

Notable Accidents August 26 – September 1

Félix Bautista (RP, BAL)

One of many largest losses of the week additionally comes first in alphabetical order. Bautista is out with elbow discomfort till no less than September 9. Sadly, the discomfort stems from a UCL harm.

In the event you want an alternate and aren’t able to commerce, Matt Strahm could possibly be a available and useful possibility. Strahm could also be slightly too low quantity for you as he has solely thrown 13.3 IP within the final month with a good stack of relievers forward of him. Nevertheless, he has a 2.02 ERA and 0.93 FIP together with these innings.

Bo Bichette (SS, TOR)

Bo Bichette sustained a proper quad pressure that put him on the IL retroactive to August 28. Fortunately, Bichette had an MRI that didn’t present any structural injury. He’s anticipated to return on or round September 7.

If it’s worthwhile to choose up somebody in your roster for additional protection, Luis Rengifo is doubtlessly accessible in your league. Rengifo is 79% rostered and hitting .340/.412/.557  with 5 HR in his final 120 PA.

Matt Chapman (3B, TOR)

One other unlucky addition to the Blue Jay’s IL is Matt Chapman. Chapman is coping with a minor challenge: a sprained proper center finger sustained after jamming his finger within the weight room just a few months in the past. Like Bichette, Chapman is eligible to return September 7.

Santiago Espinal has been protecting 3B in Chapman’s absence. Espinal is broadly accessible, however he’s solely hitting .213/.280/.255 in his final 52 PA.

The actual tales listed below are Davis Schneider and Ernie Clement. Since Chapman’s harm, Davis Schneider has been again within the line-up after a improbable August debut adopted by a decline. Since Schneider’s return, he has hit .529/.619/1.235 with 3 HR and 4 BB in his final 17 AB. Streamer has Schneider projected to say no over the remainder of the season, however we’ve got already witnessed historical past as Schneider captured the very best OPS via a hitter’s first 14 profession video games in AL historical past.

Schneider will not be the one burgeoning participant for the Blue Jays. When Matt Chapman moved to the IL, Ernie Clement was recalled. In his final 18 AB throughout 16 video games, Clement has hit .444/.450/.500 with 3 RBIs and 1 SB. Whilst you might not be seeking to take a danger in your league, each gamers are definitely compelling to observe.

Jake Cronenworth (INF, SDP)

Cronenwroth sustained a fractured wrist after being HBP by Brewer Andrew Chafin. Ouch!

Cronenworth received’t want surgical procedure, however there may be additionally an opportunity he received’t return this season. If he does, it is going to possible be near the tip of the season. So, do you want a alternative? The aforementioned Davis Schneider could possibly be an possibility right here.

Moreover, I’m not certain I’d advocate it, and I’m solely actually bringing it up as a matter of public curiosity, however Elvis Andrus has been on a roll within the final month. Perhaps he heard the screams of throngs of individuals wanting him waived. Nevertheless, Andrus hit .333/.357.531 with 5 SB in his final 81 AB. Based mostly on projections and, let’s be actual, the remainder of the yr(s), that is almost certainly a fluke.

Yu Darvish (SP, SDP)

In one other loss for the Dads, Yu Darvish hit the IL with proper elbow irritation from a bone spur. It’s attainable he received’t pitch once more this season contemplating the place the Dads stand within the playoff run.

So, you’re on the lookout for one other beginning pitcher? Like many different pitchers that wind up on the Dodgers, Ryan Yarbrough is having himself a go. In his final 26.3 IP, Yarbrough has a 1.71 ERA. He has a 3.03 FIP, however he’s in all probability nonetheless figuring issues out with the Dodgers. Even for those who don’t want a alternative for Darvish, Yarbrough can be good to have in your roster.

Tony Gonsolin (SP, LAD)

First, I’m so sorry for the horrible title I made for this text. Second, Tony Gonsolin will likely be out for the remainder of the season after having Tommy John surgical procedure. He joins the rising listing of gamers’ with UCL accidents. Fortunately, it’s the finish of the season and the time to maintain these accidents is restricted.

Gonsolin shared that he had been pitching via a UCL tear, which he and the Dodgers knew about since June. That explains why 2023 is Gonsolin’s worst season of his profession so far.

With these numbers, you possible didn’t have Gonsolin in your roster. In the event you did, that is one other place the place Ryan Yarbrough could possibly be helpful in your roster.

Erik Swanson (RP, TOR)
