A Few Injured Prospects You Should Consider

We all are aware that injuries are apart of the game. Depending on the severity of the injury, a good looking investment could turn into a loss of profit in the short term. In most cases I recommend holding your investment until the player returns to full form on the field. Injuries can also present buying opportunities. Here are a few prospects that you should consider.

St Louis Cardinals, OF - Nick Plummer - Plummer suffered a wrist injury late June and there is no indication he will play this year. His base autos can be purchased for under $10. Looking at his stats I was impressed that he drew 39 walks in 180 AB in his first taste of pro ball. Plummer looks to have a good feel for hitting and the Cardinals have a track record of developing hitters.

Houston Astros, OF - Daz Cameron - Cameron broke his finger a few weeks ago and is out for the season. His base auto can be purchased for no more than $20. I expect these prices to possibly drop even more in the winter. Scouts have some criticism regarding his bat but before the injury he was playing well in short season ball after making some adjustments in extended spring training. He may have his ups and downs but if you can get auto's for $10-$15 I would consider investing.
