C - COL
Tony Wolters went 2-for-4 with two triples, two runs scored, and three RBI on Friday against the Mariners.
You certainly don't expect triples from Wolters when he plays, but the 26-year-old added two on Friday. Wolters' playing time is sporadic at best with both Chris Iannetta and Tom Murphy taking the bulk of the at-bats. But he remains a decent DFS play when he does get the start at home and, as he showed Friday, has the potential to chip in even when he starts on the road.
Tony Wolters has been diagnosed with a concussion and has entered the concussion protocol, meaning he will be out a minimum of seven days. Wolters left Tuesday night's game against the San Diego Padres after being hit in the head by an opposing hitter's backswing.
This is a tough break for Wolters, who was putting together a nice start to the season in place of the injured Tom Murphy. He was hitting .346, although he had no home runs and just three RBIs. By the time Wolters is back from his concussion, Murphy will be close to returning from his own stint on the disabled list, so his fantasy value is pretty nonexistent at the moment.
Tony Wolters went 2-for-3 on Sunday against the Dodgers with a walk and two runs scored.
Wolters continued the solid start to his first full season as a big leaguer. He is 4-for-13 in his first four games and with two walks. He'll continue to see the lion's share of the time in Colorado while Tom Murphy is hurt.
Since the All-Star Break, Wolters owns a .432 (16-for-37), three 2B, two HR, eight RBI. He sports an 1.187 OPS.
Wolters has been valuable for fantasy owners, although he is only a platoon player, with most of his playing time coming against right-handed pitching.
Tony Wolters left Thursday's game against the Reds with concussion-like symptoms.
Wolters will go through the league's protocol before he's cleared to play again. With Nick Hundley still rehabbing, Garneau is the only healthy catcher on Colorado's roster.
