In next year's fantasy rankings, we'll probably have to give bonus points to players who've already had appendectomies, because this is really getting out of hand. Or out of abdomen. Or something. First Matt Holliday was sidelined with appendix issues, and now Adam Dunn. Details here via the Daily Herald:
According to White Sox spokesman Bob Beghtol, designated hitter Adam Dunn had laproscopic appendectomy surgery after Tuesday night's loss to the Royals.
Since it was a noninvasive procedure, Dunn is only expected to miss "up to five games."
So that's relatively good news. Five games isn't so bad, as a worst-case scenario (unless you happen to be a head-to-head owner who sets weekly lineups).
NBC Chicago's Paula Faris has been all over this noninvasive procedure, tweeting a few reassuring quotes from Dunn. He reportedly hopes to return this weekend. No need to panic, fantasy owner. But if you own both Holliday and Dunn, feel free to complain in comments — about your players, about vestigial structures. About anything, really.
