FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: YANKEES PLACE SP BARTOLO COLON (HAMSTRING) ON DL
New York Yankees SP Bartolo Colon was placed on the DL on Sunday with a strained hamstring suffered in his last start Saturday. Colon had an MRI on the area which "came back good" according to manager Joe Girardi but the team still felt he needed the stint.
Analysis: Tough break as Colon was having a big comeback season but this obviously interrupts the story for the time being. Eventually fatugue was going to erode the numbers so this could allow him to be useful further into the season. Stash him if you can.
