First baseman Jeff Bagwell flew home to Houston on Wednesday night to get a cortisone shot in his ailing right shoulder and will rejoin the team for Saturday's exhibition game against Kansas City at Minute Maid Park.

Bagwell had a cortisone shot before spring training and will have regular shots throughout the season to ease his pain.[/url]

I don't have any confidence he'll bounce back. I did have him on my draft list but as my 15th best 1b. Even if I had the chance to draft him, I was too scared about his health to want to pick him !+)

Back to the Bagwell of old??? No, but I still think he is being a bit overlooked, and should serve as a fine utility.

Bags is being severly undervalued in most leagues this year. In mixed leagues, he is worthy of 12-14th among 1st basemen...

I still think he has a .280 30hr 95 rbi season in him, which is nice production, especially at a utility or corner spot after you've filled 1b with a stud. I'm in an NL only league which uses OB% instead of he is extremely valuable in that regard.

He won't ever hit 40 and drive in 115 with 15 steals again like the good old days...

the guy has to be a lock for 25 hr, .275-.280, 80 runs, 80 rbi. Certianly not a world beater, but definitely has value.

I mean, yea, pujols, helton, ortiz, tex, thome, konerko, hafner, dunn, casey, huff, lee, delgado, sexson are preferable options. The rest is a judgment call IMO. In leagues with a util and CI, CI can become thin IMO. He is useful there I think.

Although, the one I can't decide on -- ibanez and green higher or lower than bagwell? I ask because bagwell always has the "name" with him, so if he gets hot, you move him. The other two are preferable probably if he is totally done.
