CBS still has a discrepency. Here is the info copied and pasted from Rios' CBS page:

Blue Jays OF Alex Rios missed his third straight game Sunday as he remained in Puerto Rico with his girlfriend, who is due to give birth to the couple's first child.
(Updated 07/13/2008).

Fantasy Analysis
Rios has had a down season after doing so well last year, but make no mistake, he should begin to heat up in the second half. Bummer for Fantasy owners who started him this week, though. He should be OK to go in Fantasy Week 16 (July 17-20), however.

Well, his fiancee already gave birth to their daughter, so barring any health issues or a secret trip to Vegas for a midnight wedding, I'd expect him to be back this week. CBS news has been suspect this year, quality seems to be falling.

under the official MLBA rules he's only suppossed to get 3 days off (otherwise he can't be on the active roster or something like that...) so he should be back in time for the Rays series. I wish the Jays had some protection for him, his numbers without wells in the line up are usually pretty bad... Nonetheless I hope he's got a big second half in him, he owes his owners some freakin' power (though the steals have been nice.)

I agree with your analysis. Sure, we were expecting the 20+ HR power to develop this season, but he has compensated for his lack of run production by maintaining a solid average, getting on base, stealing bags and scoring runs. I still think he is actually a buy low candidate because he is viewed as such a "bust".

Watching this guy closely all year, he is starting to develop a better approach at the plate and there are signs of progress. He is now driving more balls the other way and into the gaps. Just like when he was first called up, some of those doubles and triples are bound to leave the yard.

I think he's more than capable of hitting 7-10 HRs the rest of the way (upside) which is money in the bank if you are able to acquire him on the cheap. The downside is limited too because has shown a commitment to stealing bags.

Yeah, okay. He's a decent player but for those of us that took a gamble on him and drafted anywhere around the 4th or 5th round...he's been a bust so far. Where's the power?

You got it... it's not like we're dealing andruw jones last season here... but it's still rather shocking that he's reverted to his first call up years where he didn't have power... i hope he can find it

No one's arguing that, but a guy who's on pace for 40 steals who could potentially hit 10-15 homers if he finishes strong can't be that big a bust.

For example, if his final line is .285 AVG 90 Runs, 10 HRs, 70RBI and 40SB... that's not TOO far off from 5th round value.

I agree, he's a dissapointment, not a bust... and I think he's still capable of producing round 4 value ;-D
