And the news just keeps getting worse for Baldelli. Too bad, I like this guy. Tough couple of years for him.
Aug 4 - Baldelli was scratched from the Devil Rays' lineup Thursday due to soreness in his right hamstring and likely won't play on Friday either, the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Recommendation: Baldelli missed the first two months of the season due to a left hamstring strain, but his current injury might still be related. According to the report, Baldelli said Thursday that both hamstrings were sore during the spring as he worked his way back into form after missing all of last year due to other injuries.. "Both of them were bothering me," Baldelli said. "Even though the left one was the initial one, neither one is really my good one or my bad one." Expect the Rays to be very cautious with the increasingly fragile Baldelli, and there's a chance he could be out for a while. If you're riding Baldelli in a fairly shallow mixed league, consider looking for alternatives if he doesn't return to the lineup by Saturday.
