FANTASY Baseball Week 15 continues…

3IN_OUT_ad

Fantasy “Week” 15 continues through July 21st.

If you are playing Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball, they have combined the shortened week following the All-Star Game with the preceding week. As a result, Fantasy Week 15 will run from July 8-21 and stats are cumulative for the two weeks of the matchup. The good news is that if your league has weekly roster moves and lineup changes, deadlines are not altered for this Fantasy week. Teams will be allowed to change their lineups at the midway point, just like you normally would. Because of this there will be no FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT, instead there are 7 must-start players that are banged up and need to be benched, the replacements are up to you. As always it followed by a great recipe. This week it’s Raspberry BBQ sauce, that is great on chicken or pork.

Let’s get to it.

 

7 OUT

 

On Thursday, Jason Heyward slid awkwardly into third base and stayed on the ground, grabbing his right leg in pain. The 23-year-old left the game immediately but walked off without assistance.

Later that night, Matt Holliday was running out a routine ground ball when he pulled up short of first base. It wasn’t a particularly close play and Holliday wasn’t running at full speed, making the injury even stranger. Like Heyward, Holliday was able to walk off under his own power.

The diagnoses for both players are similar. Heyward said after the game that he thinks he can avoid a trip to the disabled list, saying the hamstring was mainly sore and not necessarily pulled. Holliday echoed those sentiments after the Cardinals game. “It just kind of grabbed me a little bit,” Holliday told reporters. “We’ll see how it feels tomorrow.

Jordan Zimmermann has been dealing with a sore neck for a few weeks. The right-hander may ask not to pitch in the All-Star game to give the neck a few extra days of rest, I would sit him until week 16.

After lasting just two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Mets on Wednesday, there were some whispers in San Francisco that Matt Cain‘s health may have played a role in his recent struggles. Cain denied any health issues after the game, and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the opposite was actually true with regards to his workhorse.”I didn’t want it to become a health issue,” Bochy told the San Jose Mercury News. “I was being cautious. He’s fine. I just had some concern there. I thought he was a little bit off, and that’s why I went to get him. I’ve got to make a call there. I thought we’d be cautious with him. I don’t want this to become a health issue, so I pulled him.” I say pull him out until he proves he is healthy

Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel said over the weekend that a bruised foot could be affecting Jimmy Rollins‘ stolen base numbers; the veteran has swiped nine bags while getting caught six times. He’s on pace for 16 steals after failing to reach 30 just twice in his career. Rollins is hitting just .250 on the year and should be benched until the next scoring period.

Jose Altuve is batting .216 with no extra-base hits in 37 July at-bats. He had just four extra-base hits in June, including one homer. Altuve’s slugging percentage is 20 points lower than it was last year, he is not hurt, but not hitting. bench.

Yasiel Puig left the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies Thursday night in the seventh inning after experiencing some soreness in his left hip area, manager Don Mattingly said. Puig is considered day to day with the injury. Puig’s injury originated July 3 when his left leg struck the padding that covers supporting poles in the right-field wall at Coors Field. “It’s been bothering me ever since,” Puig said through a translator. He has struck out 11 times in his past 29 plate appearances. It’s hard to bench the Phenom, but it’s a hunch that he will scuffle out of the break.

Raspberry BBQ Sauce

 

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup peanut oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
