2016 Fantasy Baseball Top 250 Rankings: Stars Not Shining Bright

Big time outfielders drop this week’s Fantasy Baseball Top 250 Rankings due to injuries. We lead-off once again with Bryce Harper, who we have discussed here before. He is now dealing with a neck injury and has missed his return by two days already. Not good news.

Jose Bautista is the other notable name to drop in the rankings. He suffered a sprained knee just a couple of days ago and is on the DL. Not timetable has been announced for his return, but this could be a while.

One more batter who has dropped significantly this week is Chris Davis. He has been absolutely awful the last 40 days, going 16-112 since the start of July. He will continue to drop each week unless he starts making more contact with the ball.

This week we also saw a lot more movement from relievers.

Craig Kimbrel is out of the Top 250 for now, as it looks as though there is a chance he will land on the DL again with soreness in his surgically repaired knee.

If he does avoid the DL I will be moving up back into the Top 250, but not to where he was. That knee of his is obviously going to be a problem the rest of the season for him. For the time being Brad Ziegler moves up, taking Kimbrel’s place as closer for the Red Sox.

An injury to Marlins A.J. Ramos has landed on the DL. In moved recently acquired Fernando Rodney into the closer spot.

Last week we saw the Angels replace an injured Huston Street with Cam Bedrosian. Now Bedrosian lands on the DL, so in moves Fernando Salas. I wasn’t overly excited about Bedrosian and I’m even less excited about Salas.
