Freddy Sanchez to visit Dr. Andrews: Funeral to Come


Pittsburgh Pirates' 2B and 2006 NL Batting Champion "Hollywood" Freddy Sanchez is going to see Dr. James Andrews on Monday to have his right shoulder examined. Sanchez had surgery on his shoulder last September 28 and this injury seems to be created from that rehab. Despite already being diagnosed with inflammation and tendinitis in his right rotator cuff, it is unclear if Sanchez will need additional surgery to clear anything else up in the shoulder.

FANTASY IMPACT

Seeing Dr. Andrews for any reason is never a good thing. Sanchez has decent fantasy value in most league because he can hit for AVG, collect a bunch of hits and score some runs. Avoid drafting him for now, while his status is unclear for the upcoming season. 2B is surprisingly deep this season, so it won't be worth taking a gamble on him.
