Tulo, Kemp fantasy replacements

Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Kemp to the disabled list will shake up the best fantasy roster.

If you were building a fantasy baseball roster from scratch, the following players would force your buddy to pose the question: “How’d you manage to draft all of them?”

Catcher – Jonathan Lucroy
1B/DH – Travis Hafner
Shortstop – Troy Tulowitzki
Outfielder – Matt Kemp
Outfielder – Nick Markakis
Starting Pitcher – Roy Halladay
Starting Pitcher – Jered Weaver

This starting seven all hit the disabled list this week and swept the proverbial leg of many fantasy baseball owners.

The latest duo to hit the DL was Matt Kemp (hamstring), for a second time in a month, and Troy Tulowitzki who is dealing with a groin injury.
