Chipper injury opens spot for Omar Infante
Infante deserved to keep playing anyway, probably in left field, but now there's an everyday job open. Don't underestimate the power of batting average and how critical a safe hitter can be down the stretch of a fantasy season. And Infante isn't just hitting over the past few weeks; he hit .317 in May, .306 in June and a startling .429 in July. There's nothing fluky about his season, and because he's hitting .360 against right-handed pitching, and will face a lot of it, I don't expect this to change.
