Kevin Kramer Out 4-6 Months After Surgery

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Kevin Kramer underwent hip surgery and will be out for four to six months. With the 2020 season not likely to start until at least early July because of COVID-19, this effectively will end Kramer's chances of playing this year. The 26-year-old has played in only 43 major league games the last two seasons and has hit a weak .152/.222/.165 with no home runs and nine RBI in 79 at-bats with the Pirates. The second-round pick in 2015 hit .260/.335/.417 with 10 home runs and 54 RBI in 113 games with Triple-A Indianapolis last year. Kramer wasn't going to be on anyone's fantasy radar, even entering a normal full season in 2020.
