Brian Anderson (3B,RF - MIA)
Tue, Jul 14
Player Note on Brian Anderson (3B,RF - MIA)
Anderson won't hurt you anywhere. He'll likely put up 20 home runs with passable runs and RBI, chip in a few steals, and have a batting average that you can live with. It's not exciting, but filling your roster with players like Anderson provide stability, which is worth considering on draft day.
Delino DeShields (CF - CLE)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Delino DeShields (CF - CLE)
DeShields tested positive for COVID-19, but returned to the Indians on July 11. On July 13, however, the team placed him on the IL for undisclosed reasons, which suggests that he has not fully cleared protocol. For now, avoid drafting DeShields, who doesn't appear to have a place to play in any event.
Jesus Luzardo (SP,RP - OAK)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Jesus Luzardo (SP,RP - OAK)
Luzardo has tested positive for COVID-19, though there have been few details as to his reported symptoms (or lack thereof). A prime breakout candidate, especially given the delay and the lack of an innings limit, Luzardo's fantasy stock is now in a bit of a grey area. Monitor the reports but be prepared to knock him down a few pegs in your draft absent positive reports on his health.
Eduardo Rodriguez (SP - BOS)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Eduardo Rodriguez (SP - BOS)
Rodriguez has tested positive for COVID-19, and Ron Roenicke has admitted that it's unlikely the Red Sox will have him ready for Opening Day. He's reportedly asymptomatic, however, which hopefully means he'll be able to have two positive tests and return to the team sometime after the first few days.
Scott Kingery (2B,3B,SS,LF,CF - PHI)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Scott Kingery (2B,3B,SS,LF,CF - PHI)
Kingery has reported to camp after initially dealing with COVID-19. He says that he's still dealing with his recovery, including some shortness of breath, but it appears likely that he'll be ready to go when the season begins.
Kole Calhoun (RF - ARI)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Kole Calhoun (RF - ARI)
Calhoun had returned to camp after originally testing positive for COVID-19, but had yet to play in an intrasquad game when he was again missing from camp. It's unclear if Calhoun's absence is again related to COVID-19 but, at this point, it's best to look elsewhere for a late-round outfielder unless there is further news.
Joey Gallo (LF,CF - TEX)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Joey Gallo (LF,CF - TEX)
Gallo reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, but the accuracy of his tests have been questioned. Regardless, Gallo is back in camp with his teammates and should have no restrictions going forward.
Luis Urias (2B,SS - MIL)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Luis Urias (2B,SS - MIL)
Urias tested positive for COVID-19, but is reportedly asymptomatic. Nevertheless, he remains in quarantine and can only rejoin the team after two positive tests. Urias has upside, but given his performance and current health situation, there's almost no reason to bother drafting him in anything but deep NL-only leagues.
DJ LeMahieu (1B,2B,3B - NYY)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on DJ LeMahieu (1B,2B,3B - NYY)
LeMahieu tested positive for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, according to the Yankees. Assuming he rejoins the team by the start of the season - a big "if" but somewhat likely given his early positive test - then he should have little difficulty getting ready for the season.
Salvador Perez (C - KC)
Mon, Jul 13
Player Note on Salvador Perez (C - KC)
Perez tested positive for COVID-19 early in July, but is reportedly asymptomatic. He'll need two negative tests to return to the team but, assuming that he does, he shouldn't need long to get ready for the season. For now, drop Perez down your board a tad but don't run from him.
