I saw the White Sox game when he hurt his shin - he actually got a hit that at-bat and proceeded to have a 4-4 night. The following day he went 2-5.
Maybe the reason he's been hitless for a few games now is his lack of rest. He DH'ed yesterday and I was sure he would get the day off today after an 0-6 night. But he is back in the lineup today. The Indians are off tomorrow (thankfully) but does anyone else think he would benefit from more rest?
As fantasy owners, we become greedy and welcome 6-game weeks from the catcher spot. But this might wear our guy down by season's end...
