Found April 27, 2012 on Baseball Professor:
Every morning we recap the previous night’s games, news and notes so that you’re up-to-date on everything baseball. As always you can follow us on Twitter (@BaseballProf) and like us on Facebook to get updated, fantasy-relevant news, tidbits and analysis. 1. We kick off today’s Daily Dozen with some Carl Crawford injury news. Dr. James Andrews discovered a sprained UCL in his elbow. The good news is that he won’t need surgery, but the bad news is he could miss up to three months.

I thought he was a good candidate to bounce back this year after an underwhelming 2011 season, but that seems to be a distant possibility now. 2. Some more injury news, Ryan Zimmerman is likely headed to the DL although it will be retroactive to April 20. I mentioned this in Wednesday’s post, but Zimmerman is becoming that player who I wouldn’t draft no matter how good his producti...
