not cool. I was planning on keeping Iwakuma for $3. Probably still have to at that price.

And now T. Walker is experiencing shoulder soreness early and will be limited early in camp....doesn't "sound" like anyone is really worried about it but a sore shoulder is a sore shoulder...ugh

Just saw Hamels is expecting to pitch in April so hopefully he only misses 2-3 starts at most

Not exactly the same....Greinke was coming off a freak collar bone break that wasn't likely to be a long term thing. With Hamels and potentially Walker you are talking about "shoulder soreness/tiredness" which is a scary thing...I owned Greinke last year and I wasn't really worried about him when he came back...if I owned either of Hamels or Walker I'd probably be a little worried the rest of the season.

Iwakuma is a little bit more like Greinke in that he hurt his finger which I'd imagine will heal and he'll be fine once he comes back.


I'd hold off on any judgement one way or another until this time next month if you don't have draft before then. I'm sure more will be known at that time.

If you draft before Spring Training is under way and the information available is more specific, I would just avoid all of them. No need to risk a high pick when there are so many SP projected for similar value. Just move on to the next guy on your list.

I already had one draft and unfortunately got a what i thought was a discount on Hamels, but in the draft Im doing tonight Ive crossed him/Walker/Iwakuma off my list and wont touch them unless the fall 4+ rounds below my projected values.

Pitchers with injury issues?!? That's hard to fathom.
