Where are you hurting most right now? Chances are it's at first base, where Pete Alonso and Vinnie Pasquantino have both succumbed to injuries in recent days, with Pasquantino's being a season-ender.

It should be pretty obvious that the former is must-stash and the latter is must-not-stash, as my IL stash rankings below will confirm, but you may be wondering where else you can turn at a position that has been surprisingly weak this year. 

I have a couple of suggestions. The first would be Nolan Jones (74 percent rostered), who has converted a stellar Triple-A performance into a splashy first couple weeks in the big leagues, connecting for long home runs while also chipping in some stolen bases. LaMonte Wade (64 percent rostered) has been one of the most under-rostered players for several weeks now, reaching base at better than a .400 clip while mostly batting leadoff for the Giants and delivering better power numbers than he gets credit for. There's also Alex Kirilloff (44 percent rostered), who's playing more than ever following his wrist issues of the past. The power has been a little underwhelming, but he's getting on base at a high rate and hitting a ton of line drives.

As for the best way to use your IL spots, the rankings probably speak for themselves. You'll notice Oneil Cruz has moved up quite from when I last took part in this exercise about a month ago. But he's a month further into his recovery from a fractured fibula, which makes his expected return that much closer. You'll also notice I'm fairly motivated to stash Chris Sale even though he won't make it back from the stress fracture in his shoulder any earlier than August. As always, stashability isn't strictly a matter of the length of the wait but also the extent of the reward at the end of it.
