Second-half value of stars currently on DL 

July, 14, 2011

Sometimes in baseball it's all about the asterisk, and I don't mean in regards to Roger Maris and Barry Bonds. As baseball begins its second half, I see many players with that annoying little symbol next to their names in fantasy leagues, which means those fellows aren't helping your teams because they're on the disabled list. Of course, it doesn't tell the tale of their actual value. Here are the players in the top 250 on the ESPN Player Rater currently on the disabled list and my thoughts on them the rest of the season.
