Catcher – Jonathan Lucroy
1B/DH – Travis Hafner
Shortstop – Troy Tulowitzki
Outfielder – Matt Kemp
Outfielder – Nick Markakis
Starting Pitcher – Roy Halladay
Starting Pitcher – Jered Weaver

This starting seven all hit the disabled list this week and swept the proverbial leg of many fantasy baseball owners.

The latest duo to hit the DL was Matt Kemp (hamstring), for a second time in a month, and Troy Tulowitzki who is dealing with a groin injury.

Here are my top five fantasy available replacements for Kemp, their ownership percentage and stats for the last 14 days:

• Dayan Viciedo – 5 HR / 16 RBI / 11 R (46.2 percent ownership)
• Mike Trout – 8 RBI / 9 R / 3 SB (65.6 percent ownership
• Alfonso Soriano – 5 HR / 8 RBI / 6 R (19.3 percent ownership)
• Scott Hairston – 4 HR / 10 RBI / 6 R (0.6 percent ownership)
• Jeff Francouer – 4 HR / 7 RBI / 7 R (55.5 percent ownership)

Here are my top five fantasy available replacements for Tulo, their ownership percentage and stats for the last 14 days:

• Ian Desmond – 3 HR / 8 RBI / 7 R (63.5 percent ownership)
• Alcides Escobar – 15 hits / 7 R / .313 BA (22.3 percent ownership)
• Dee Gordon – 2 SB / 11 hits / .297 BA (54.9 percent ownership)
