Do you guys think he will come back healthy? What round do you see him going next year?

I doubt he comes back this season and makes a huge splash....Wrist injuries have got to be one of the tougher injuries to come back from in baseball. Look at D Lee...He hasnt been himself since returning from his wrist injury...
I think Matsui will be a steal in next years draft. I've always liked him as one of the more underrated fantasy players out there. He's not really a great head2head guy, but he is a solid roto player.

I think he'll provide the Yankees AND fantasy teams a boost in the last month of the season.

Someone dropped him when he was supposed to be out all year and I stashed him in an open DL spot just because of how good he is. It looks like it will pay off because he's expected back in a month (August 15) since his rehab went better than expected.

If he's available and you have an open spot, stash him now! ;-D

I agree, next year he could fly under tha radar if people are comparing stats for their drafts.

It was also on his players news on his Yahoo profile.

Another article from 07/08/06 says:
"The Yankees are also without outfielders Gary Sheffield and Hideki Matsui, who are both out with left wrist injuries. Matsui hopes to return in mid-August, while Sheffield has targeted Sept. 1 to rejoin the team."

Isn't a injured wrist a pretty tough thing to come back from?
