Fantasy Baseball News

Beckham should be on your bench.

With only a couple of days left in the Major League Baseball season, fantasy baseball league titles are on the line. With team and player developments happening everyday, Weekly Fantasy Sportal will continue to provide you with the latest news and information on all things baseball.

If you’re gearing up for the fantasy baseball playoffs, come back routinely to WFS and check out Fantasy Baseball Sportal for weekly advice, predictions, and analysis.

Gordan Beckham, 2B, Chicago White Sox

After bouncing back from a sub-par first half of the season, the second baseman from Georgia will most likely be limited to pinch-running duties over the final four games of the season due to a hand injury. The earliest Beckham would play the field is Saturday or Sunday, leaving him with virtually no value for the rest of the season. Beckham should be benched in all leagues.

Shane Victorino, OF, Philadelphia Phillies

Victorino is leaving the Phillies on Thursday to fly home for the birth of his third child. It is unknown at this point whether the ‘Flyin Hawaiian’ will be back in time for Friday’s game against Atlanta, but fantasy owners should have another option available in case he cannot go.

Carlos Quentin, OF, Chicago White Sox

Quentin left Chicago’s Wednesday game against the Red Sox with a sore left ankle that he injured the day before. Quentin probably will not play at all today, but he believes he will be able to return to the White Sox starting lineup for the final series of the season against the Indians. Fantasy owners in daily leagues should Bench Quentin and monitor his situation throughout the last few days of the season.

Matt Cain, SP, San Francisco Giants

After throwing a complete game, three-hitter against the Rockies last Sunday, Cain will start Friday’s season opener against the Padres, pushing Barry Zito back to Saturday. This move sets Cain up to start Game 2 of the NLDS if the Giants take care of business this weekend against San Diego. Fantasy owners should take notice that Cain is starting Friday as apposed to Saturday, and he should be active in all fantasy formats.

Wilson Betemit, 3B, Kansas City Royals

Betemit went 0-4 with three strikeouts in his return to the starting lineup Wednesday. Kansas City’s 3B missed each of the past three games after being hit by a pitch in his right shin last Saturday. Betemit has been a sleeper 3B for fantasy owners all season, and his potential makes him a solid play in all fantasy formats for the rest of the season.
