Jose Reyes hurt, Daniel Murphy out for '11

&#8226 New York Mets infielders Jose Reyes (hamstring) and Daniel Murphy (knee) left Sunday's game early with injuries. Reyes has an MRI pending but could miss time. He is ninth on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater. As for Murphy, who's fifth in the NL in batting and owned in 100 percent of leagues, he tore his MCL and his season is over. Meanwhile, for those in leagues in which one game of eligibility matters, David Wright can now play shortstop.

&#8226 Atlanta Braves rookie outfielder Jose Constanza homered in the same game, and he's hitting .412 in 34 at-bats. Don't buy it! Constanza, 27, can steal a base but hit six home runs in seven minor league seasons, and when the average plummets -- and it will -- the Braves will use someone else in left field.

&#8226 A rookie to watch is Kansas City Royals second baseman Johnny Giavotella, who also hit his first big league home run Sunday. Giavotella went 5-for-11 this past weekend, scored three runs and stole a base after hitting .305 in 445 minor league games. He's not standard-league material yet, but invest the extra dollar in AL-only formats.

&#8226 Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy tossed eight shutout innings of three-hit ball, winning for the fifth time and lowering his ERA to 4.63. Still, don't feel bad if you missed out. Peavy's ERA was on the wrong side of 6 in June and July. So far in August it's 1.80. It's tough to believe he's turned a corner ... yet.

&#8226 Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Roy Oswalt allowed three runs (on 12 hits) in six innings Sunday, his first outing since June 23. Oswalt, who has had back problems, might not take regular rotation turns with the Phillies seemingly playoff-bound, and because he has an ugly 1.41 WHIP and low strikeout rate, fantasy owners shouldn't own him simply because of his name. For now, he's someone to bench.
