Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The Blue Jays have placed third baseman Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 6, with an oblique strain. But he's expected to miss 3-6 weeks.

Report: Blue Jays worried about Brett Lawrie


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lawrie underwent an MRI on Wednesday after being pulled from the Tuesday game with back tightness. John Gibbons declined to reveal its results to the National Post "until the time's right."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Brett Lawrie needs to be a Fantasy part-timer


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/11/2014) With a large debt to his 11 home runs and 36 RBI, Brett Lawrie is currently starting in 77 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com, but in at least some weeks of the remaining schedule for the Blue Jays, that number should drop dramatically.

Lawrie has been just a moderate power threat away from Rogers Centre, as he has just four home runs and four doubles in 109 at-bats. He is also batting .202 in away games, and while some of a .207 BABIP is the result of bad luck, a 22.9 percent infield fly rate (per FanGraphs.com) has played a role, too.

Lawrie is just one of a handful of players whom I highlighted in a blog post on hitters who have been impacted by park factors. As with the other players included in the analysis, owners should consider Lawrie's upcoming venues when determining whether to start or sit him.
