Those fantasy owners delighted by the walk-off grand slam Los Angeles Angels first baseman Kendry Morales delivered Saturday night later got a harsh dose of reality: That's probably the last time he'll help your team this season.

Morales (in)famously broke his leg celebrating at home plate, and while the Angels seem optimistic their best hitter will return this season, fantasy owners need not show the same loyalty. Maybe Morales will return in September, but it's tough to trust anyone coming off a three-month absence. The Angels will have roster space (by placing him on the DL) and, if contending, every reason to push Morales. But most fantasy owners don't have the same roster flexibility, and they simply can't wait that long for him.
