Don’t call it a comeback. Actually, no, you can call it that.
Injuries often scare many away and put a dent in championship aspirations. But fantasy baseball players can capitalize on them by selecting returning stars at a discount.
Last season, Buster Posey, Joe Mauer, David Wright, Stephen Strasburg and Adam Wainwright all bounced back after missing significant time the prior season. These guys came at a cheaper rate to drafters who shrewdly took a risk.
Several key names went down last season, to the chagrin of their fantasy owners, but many of them deserve a second chance in 2013. Their previous unblemished names are now tarnished with a depleted 2012 stat line, but don’t expect them to stay down for long.
Target these players to triumphantly return from injury next year.
