On a Positive Note

Posted: May 21, 2011 in General

As the injury bug ravishes through my fantasy team (Mauer, David Wright, Shane Victorino, Josh Johnson, Lance Berkman), and many others with Ryan Braun joining the injured ranks this weekend it is time to put a positive spin on things.  For those of you looking for hope to stop the bleeding of your fantasy roster might I suggest Justin Turner, more likely known as David Wright’s replacement.  He should gain eligibility for 3rd by the end of this weekend as he continues to start in Wright’s place.  Turner has been starting at 2B and 3B for about two weeks compiling a .354 avg 7 runs and 14 rbi’s.  He currently holds a best for the Met’s 6 straight games with an rbi.  He is only owned in 11% of leagues, but that number has climbed from 1% a week ago.  I expect his value to continue to climb, and if he stays hot he may still have a spot at second when Wright returns.  As far as his percentage owned Turner is a very under the radar tip so jump on it.  If I had a roster spot I would also start looking into the minor league callups of such players as Dominic Brown, Desmond Jennings, and Dustin Ackerly.
