Would this be a good time to buy low on him or do you think he will drop considerably because of it?

Its the anemia secondary to the bleeding thats slowing him down now. Some fluids and some Iron will have him at full speed in a couple weeks. Japanese have a higher incidence of stomach ulcer/maligancies because of all the smoked fish/meats.

Glad to hear that he should be OK. Kept talking up his injury on the draft board and got him at the end of the 4th round in a 12 team league. Hopefully he'll be fine by the 2nd week of April and he'll have his usual .310, 40SB year, 110 R year.

If you still have a late draft, looks like there is good value in Ichiro's draft position now!

He is going to miss about 10% of the season so you should be projecting more like 36SB and 99 runs. A guy with those stats and very little power is only worth a 4th round pick if he hits .320+ and Ichiro very well could.

He's only on target to miss a week, hardly 10% of the season. The DL stint is retroactive to a week ago, last time he was in a game.
