If you were building a fantasy baseball roster from scratch, the following players would force your buddy to pose the question: "How'd you manage to draft all of them?"
Catcher - Jonathan Lucroy
1B/DH - Travis Hafner
Shortstop - Troy Tulowitzki
Outfielder - Matt Kemp
Outfielder - Nick Markakis
Starting Pitcher - Roy Halladay
Starting Pitcher - Jared Weaver
This starting seven all hit the disabled list this week and swept the proverbial leg of many fantasy baseball owners.
The latest duo to hit the DL was Matt Kemp (hamstring), for a second time in a month, and Troy Tulowitzki who is dealing with a groin injury.
Here are my top five fantasy available replacements for Kemp, their ownership percentage and stats for the last 14 days:
- Dayan Viciedo - 5 HR / 16 RBI / 11 R (46.2 percent ownership)
- Mike Trout - 8 RBI / 9 R / 3 SB (65.6 percent ownership
- Alfonso Soriano - 5 HR / 8 RBI / 6 R (19.3 percent ownership)
- Scott Hairston - 4 HR / 10 RBI / 6 R (0.6 percent ownership)
- Jeff Francouer - 4 HR / 7 RBI / 7 R (55.5 percent ownership)
Here are my top five fantasy available replacements for Tulo, their ownership percentage and stats for the last 14 days:
- Ian Desmond - 3 HR / 8 RBI / 7 R (63.5 percent ownership)
- Alcides Escobar - 15 hits / 7 R / .313 BA (22.3 percent ownership)
- Dee Gordon - 2 SB / 11 hits / .297 BA (54.9 percent ownership)
- Alexei Ramirez - 13 hits / 8 RBI / 4 R (58.0 percent ownership)
- Willie Bloomquist - 15 hits / 7 R / .366 BA (2.9 percent ownership)

And the baseball drama continues, as no division is safe in the 2012 season.
Competition is ridiculously fierce, but the injuries are getting out-of-hand.
Teams have to continue on without their stars, like the Phillies sans ace Roy Halladay; the dominating Dodgers without their dominator Matt Kemp; and the Cardinals add Lance Berkman to the list of reigning Champs on the DL.
