Barry Zito Sent to DL by Giants with Mid-Foot Sprain: Fantasy Baseball Impact
Barry Zito is making his first trip to the 15-day disabled list in his 12-year MLB career after spraining his foot during his start on Saturday.
Zito only got five outs in the game before departing, and he hasn't looked so hot this season with a 6.23 ERA. He will be replaced on the 25-man roster by Ryan Vogelsong, who has almost zero fantasy value.
If you own Zito and your fantasy baseball team has an open DL spot, hang on to him and pick up someone like Charlie Morton (1.64 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) off the waiver wire. Zito was decent last year, with a 4.15 ERA and 150 strikeouts, but don't hesitate to drop him (if need be) for Morton or Jair Jurrjens, who's coming off a scoreless victory for the Braves (7 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 K).
In somewhat-related Barry Zito injury news, today TMZ.com posted the 911 call from Zito's March 31 car crash.
