Fantasy Baseball Podcast: Injuries! Yates, Leclerc, Gallen, Eflin, Lamet, Tatis & Springer!

This article is part of our Fantasy Baseball Podcast series.

Ack! Bask in Jeff and Fred's angst as they discuss injuries to Kirby Yates,  Jose Leclerc, Zac Gallen, Zach Eflin, Dinelson Lamet, Fernando Tatis and George Springer. At the start of the pod, Yates was expected to miss a few weeks, but at the end was ruled out for the season. Springer's injury was announced at the end of the pod.

What are the new closer options in Toronto? In some good news, at least Lamet is expected to pitch tomorrow (Wednesday). They also review Fred's NL Tout Wars squad and Jeff's AL Tout Wars team. Also, Alex Kiriloff was sent down. Plus, closer updates for Richard Rodriguez in Pittsburgh and Emilio Pagan in San Diego.

Enjoy audio or video options. Here's the traditional audio podcast:
