Shortstop Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Elvis Andrus, SS, TEX3/31/2015 12:48:00 PM
Description: Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus (back) will get back on the field Wednesday.
Insight: It never was considered serious. Andrus can supply fantasy owners with steals and runs, but his .647 OPS of a season ago isn't going to help much. He was also caught stealing a league-high 15 times so if your league uses net steals as a category, he's much less valuable.
J.J. Hardy, SS, BAL3/30/2015 5:08:00 PM
Description: Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy (shoulder) could begin the season on the disabled list, according to manager Buck Showalter.
Insight: He will be shut down for 10 days, so definitely will not be in the lineup on Opening Day, with a DL stint very possible. Everth Cabrera would likely fill in until Hardy is able to return.
Addison Russell, SS, CHC3/30/2015 1:45:00 PM
Description: Cubs minor league shortstop prospect Addison Russell was sent to the minor league camp Monday.
Insight: Russell really didn't have much of a chance to stick with the big club, despite a .324 batting average this spring, with Starlin Castro entrenched at shortstop. The 21-year-old has plenty of time to get ready for the big leagues, but if he hits well in Triple-A the Cubs might consider trading Castro.
Didi Gregorius, SS, NYY3/28/2015 3:58:00 PM
Description: Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius sprained his left wrist and will have X-rays.
Insight: We will know more after the results are out. If it's serious, the Yankees have Stephen Drew to slide over to shortstop. Gregorius has a tough assignment this season - replace the legend known as Derek Jeter.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC3/24/2015 4:28:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro (groin) is now expected to return to action on Wednesday.
Insight: He was originally thought to be back in the lineup on Tuesday, but Chicago will give him an extra day. Nevertheless, Castro seems to be just fine.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC3/22/2015 12:12:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro (groin) said he will be back in the lineup on Tuesday.
Insight: He was scratched on Saturday, but it was just as a precaution. Draft Castro as you normally would.
Starlin Castro, SS, CHC3/21/2015 3:54:00 PM
Description: Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was scratched from Saturday's lineup with tightness in his right groin.
Insight: There is no need to worry as of now. Consider Castro day-to-day, but it is worth monitoring the situation.
