So April 1 is tomorrow; and it's not just April's Fool day but also MLB Opening Day.
Are you ready?
I'm ready for the season to begin but my MLB Fantasy Teams are not yet ready.
It's NOT my fault.
For some reason (unknown to me), some injured players are not yet designated as IR so I have been unable to place them on the IR and choose a replacement from the waiver wire.
NYY Luke Voit will start the season on the IR yet in my Yahoo League he is simply shown as DTD
The same is true of NYM SP Carlos Carrasco who is expected to miss maybe 6 weeks because of an injured hamstring. While I have Voit in a single league and it is a Roto, I have Carrasco in several leagues and they are HTH.
That means I will lose some value right off the bat (nice idiom) because I won't have a replacement for some players until after the season begins. That's life.

Voit has finally been placed on IR; a waiver claim was made for Trevor Rogers (SP MIA) since TOR SP Robbie Ray was placed on the IR by Toronto for his bruised elbow (he fell at home and bruised it; not baseball related). I also made a claim for Maikel Franco to make up some power loss from Voit being on the IR.
As of my last check, CArrasco still hasn't been placed on the IR in my leagues.
Also Adalberto Mondesi - SS KC has been placed on the IR to begin the season. I have high hopes of a breakout season from Mondesi - hopefully injuries won't be a recurring theme with him this season.
