Hill was not cleared to resume baseball activities after visiting a doctor Monday. He is not expected to visit a doctor again until May 27. Hill has been on the disabled list since April 15 after suffering a broken hand on April 9. The team has yet to issue a concrete timetable for Hill's return.
With another three hits, including a triple, Monday at Colorado, the
"You'll find if I do it [play him more] he will wear down a little bit and probably have medical problems," manager Kirk Gibson said after Monday's game. "We can't afford that."
Not only does Chavez sit against lefties, but he never plays more than two days in a row. With all those limitations on him, he pretty much has to hit .343 with a .984 OPS to make any sort of impact in Fantasy. As good as he is, he won't keep that up.
Some of the trade scenarios involving the
Listen, I like Corbin. I picked him up in a few leagues a couple weeks into the season and have been starting him fairly consistently since then. I even moved him up to 43rd in my starting pitcher rankings after his latest masterpiece at Colorado, of all places. And he deserves it. The improvement he's made this season is legitimate. But just because I've enjoyed what he's done for me doesn't mean I've lost all perspective with him.
He's not Clayton Kershaw. He's not even Matt Harvey. He won't be in the Cy Young discussion at season's end. And when his ERA normalizes to something right around 3.00, his limited strikeout potential will make him less than an automatic start.
Check out Wade Miley's numbers on June 24 last year. Much of what people are saying about Corbin now they were saying about Miley then. No, Miley didn't collapse -- and neither will Corbin -- but his numbers did normalize.
Last week, the
Chavez almost never faces lefties, but in Fantasy Week 9 (May 27-June 2), that won't be much of a problem. The Diamondbacks are scheduled to face at least five righty starters in their seven games, and if Yu Darvish starts one of Monday's doubleheader games for the Rangers instead of Martin Perez, that makes six. The veteran third baseman crushed right-handed pitching last season, and he is outdoing himself this year with a .360/.418/.629 split.
It's hard to find a long-term roster spot for Chavez, since he sits against lefties, but if your mixed league team isn't getting much production from third base, he's worth a pickup for the coming week.
Gregorius has hit safely in seven of his last eight games. He's batting .387 (12 for 31) with one triple, three doubles and five RBI in that span.
The rookie shortstop has totaled 10 multi-hit games in 22 appearances and has failed to record a hit just four times this season.
