Fantasy Analysis | 1408663834
Garrett Richards potentially still worth keeping
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

What a sad day for Garrett Richards and his Fantasy owners. What an unfortunate end to a brilliant season that probably hasn't gotten the pub it deserved.

He was the ace for the best team in baseball at the time of his injury. And because his breakthrough was so unexpected, he was a waiver claim in most Fantasy leagues. With that kind of production at that low of a cost -- and from a dual-eligible pitcher, no less -- you could argue Richards was the most valuable player in Fantasy for the 5 1/2 months he was healthy.

But now, he's not -- and because an injury no one would have expected. We've all learned to brace ourselves for the next torn up elbow, but not knee -- not for a pitcher, anyway -- which means we don't really know what comes next. The timetable for Richards is 6-9 months, which is an extremely wide range. It gives him some hope of returning by opening day but also allows for him to miss up to half the season.

My guess he misses some time -- enough to diminish his keeper value in a league where you keep just a handful of players, and all on equal terms. But if you keep as many as one-third of your players, and you keep them relative to what they cost you, again, given the price tag for Richards coming into the year, I'd hold on to him.

Oliver Perez hit with the loss Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks pitcher Oliver Perez was hit with a loss Thursday against the Nationals.

Perez entered a tie game in the eighth inning, and was able to hold the Nationals scoreless for an inning. He came out to start the ninth, but was pulled after giving up a single to Denard Span. Span would steal second against Evan Marshall, and came around to score on a throwing error for the walkoff win. Perez was charged with the run and the loss. He dropped to 2-3.

Salvador Perez's MRI comes back clean
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

An MRI on Royals catcher Salvador Perez came back clean, according to MLB.com.

Perez has been dealing with knee issues, but both he and manager Ned Yost have been adamant the injury is not serious. Perez first complained of tightness Monday, but played in Tuesday's game. He was held out Wednesday, though, and the club decided to send him for an MRI. Perez is hitting .268/.304/.417 over 441 at-bats.
