Gonzalez has a hand/finger problem that is keeping him from swinging a bat. If he cannot swing a bat then he cannot get in the game and do anything productive. Ellsbury has a foot problem but other than that he is fine. If the foot problem heals enough to where he can participate in a game then he should be productive immediately.
Thankfully...I don't have to make that kind of decision with my OF. Unfortunately, I do have to make a decision on Allen Craig before my first playoff matchup next week.
I would drop Jacoby first, Guessin he's out 3 weeks. there is still an outside chance Carlos gets AB next week. the injury will not affect his performance as far as I can tell. only his number of ab so hold on as long as possible
