Encarnacion, Votto hurt; trade roundup

Fantasy owners had a legitimate -- in theory -- decision to make a few months ago if looking at drafting first basemen in the second round. Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Davis were off the board, leaving, essentially, Edwin Encarnacion, Prince Fielder and Joey Votto available. I ranked Encarnacion in my first round actually, with Votto nowhere close -- I did like Fielder, mostly -- but few could have expected the turn of events that binds them today, because each is headed to the disabled list for a quad injury.
