Troy Glaus - 3B - ANA

Troy Glaus will have surgery on his right shoulder Friday and be sidelined for at least two months.
This is probably for the best, but it's going to do a lot of damage to a lot of fantasy squads. Glaus will have surgery to repair fraying of the labrum and rotator cuff. It's something that probably should have happened last year, but doctors thought rehab would take care of his problem and it certainly did seem to until he made things worse a couple of weeks ago. Glaus's absence means that both Casey Kotchman and Tim Salmon will play regularly for the next month. Chone Figgins will be the primary third baseman.



I guess Salmon will be the regular center fielder?

I stayed away from him early because of last years injuries because he already labeled himself "injury prone". Looks like he may be lower down the list next year.

Poor guy though, he was mashing.

Tough break. From possible multi-eligible player (1B/3B) to out 2+ months.
1.Roger>Randy this year; 2.New Yankee SP's = BUST! (again); 3. Bernie will cover the least amount of ground of any CF in baseball for 4th straight yr.; 4. Yanks = stuck with Giambi's contract; 5. Loaiza > any SP signed in offseason by Yankees.

Salmon will DH. DaVanon wil play center against right handers with Figgins at third and against lefties Halter will play third and Figgins will play center. That's assuming they don't bring up McPherson or make any other major roster move.

Dang. Sorry Glaus owners.

Look at it this way, Glaus' 11 homers in the first month of baseball will probably be more than what Ensberg hits all year. :-D

heh, more than likely bleach. Wow, labrum and rotator cuff surgery? This should have been taken care of last year. Idiot doctors...

Wow did I get lucky. In a very competitive, deep keeper league I'm in, I traded Glaus straight up for Pedro a few days before he got injured. The owner was fed up with Pedro's relatively slow start and a fan of Glaus' torrid start. Not a moment to soon, if I do say so myself.
