FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Leading Off (4/29)

Apr 29, 2019

Is it time for Thor’s owners to worry?

Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Dan Harris (@danharris80). He’ll be providing quick-hitting recaps of the previous day’s baseball action.

We’ve got a ton of injury news to break down, including Chris Archer and Eloy Jimenez hitting the injured list, and Christian Yelich and Fernando Tatis Jr. leaving their most recent games with injuries. We then talk about all the closer news from this weekend, such as A.J. Minter’s struggles and the Rays’ deploying what appears to be a three-headed committee. Finally, we’ll dissect some positive performances from this weekend, such as Mike Minor’s, and some negative ones, such as Jacob deGrom’s and Noah Syndergaard’s.
