i really like figgy and am actually going after him in a keeper league. he is too good to not turn things around. personal issues sometimes turn a players game around, he might come back with a ltlle something special, you never know with these types of things. post your lineup, you might have someone else worth dropping

he'll be back just in time to help your team in the playoffs. Hold onto him if you're going to make the playoffs

.275 average, and 16 SBs, I don't know anything about your league, but I'm not sure you really want to drop a player with 16 SBs. He has been pretty bad this past month, thats true. But I think that has a lot to do with his injury. He really never had his speed back, so he hasn't been comfortable stealing bases. I'm hoping this extended rest will cure his troubles, and he will come back after the break like a storm. (Of course, being a Red Sox fan, I'm hoping that storm starts after Sunday. Until then, 4 or 5 hits and a few SBs will satisfy me. Lol.)

In the meantime, I can't even figure out if he is going to be playing tomorrow night. Hes still listed in Yahoo as NA. Hes sitting on my bench for now. Heres the last players note...

Advice: The Angels expect Figgins to return after the All-Star break.


When after the break is hard to tell. I can understand him wanting to take some extra time to be with his father, who just had a stroke. We'll just have to wait and see. Anyone in the area who has some news, any updates would be appreciated.

My understanding is that the Angels just removed him from the bereavement list today in time to start the second half. It remains to be seen whether he'll actually return to action right away or if he will need to return to his father's side in light of the stroke. I wouldn't drop him as he has the ability to turn things around at the swing of a bat... just a matter of time.

He'll be back on Friday.

He's in a slump now, but it's been bad luck since he's getting the ball in play. I think his improved hitting is legit since he's much more disciplined and draws a good amount of walks now. I'm more concerned that he's running less this year.
