For fantasy purposes, August and/or September may be the most frustrating time of year to have a player sustain an injury. If the injury is significant enough, a multiweek hiatus could potentially spill into September, creating the potential for difficult to read scenarios. On September 1, the roster for each MLB team expands to 40, arming managers with as many as 15 additional players at their disposal. This means some teams, especially those with World Series aspirations, can take a conservative approach with their injured or recovering players. Furthermore, the expanded roster may keep certain injured players off the disabled list as the team doesn’t have to fill the position.
