The Baltimore Orioles have placed home run champ Chris Davis on the 15 day disabled list with a strained oblique muscle. No timetable is set for his return, but he is expected to miss more than the minimum of 15 days. This likely means Davis will not return until Mother’s Day or later.
The Detroit Tigers have placed pitcher Anibal Sanchez on the disabled list with a middle finger laceration. He was lifted from his last start in the third inning with a blister. This would seem to be worse than your typical blister, but it is possible that Sanchez will only miss two starts. We will keep you updated on how many he will miss.
Again, the fantasy repercussions of these injuries can have a big impact on your league. For those of you that are losing these guys, you need a quality replacement, and you need one fast. I am here to help. I will give you a couple of additions to replace these injured players, depending on the size of the league you play in. The first will deal with the standard 10 and 12 team leagues, and will highlight players that are available in 15-50 percent of leagues. The second group will be for those of you that play in larger roster 10 and 12 team leagues and 16 teamers. These players will be available in 50-80 percent of leagues. The last will give you replacements for deep leagues, and AL-only leagues.
