As Matt Shetler reported here: , Mark Trumbo is out indefinitely.  If it is indeed a stress fracture, you Trumbo owners will have to find a replacement for at least the next six weeks, if not longer.  As always, I am here to help!

I will give you tips on who to pick up to cover your 1B or OF positions, depending on where you were playing him.  Since all leagues are different, I will break this into three separate classes.  The first will deal with standard H2H or 5×5 roto league with 10 or 12 teams.  I will offer you replacement players who are available in at 25-60 percent of leagues.

The second part will be for those leagues that play five outfielders or two first basemen, or leagues that have more than 12 teams.  This will feature players available in 60-80 percent of leagues.

The last will be for leagues with 20 or more teams, or leagues that have more than 12 teams and start multiple 1B slots or five or more outfielders.  This will also apply to NL-only leagues, or any league where waivers are shallow.  This will show players that are available in 80-100 percent of leagues

I will try to focus on players that provide you with cheap homers, no matter the hit to batting average, since that is what Trumbo provided anyway.  That said, it may be difficult to replace his seven home runs already at this point of the season.
