Fantasy Baseball IL Stash Rankings: Joshua Lowe, Jordan Romano among those worth the wait

The 2024 Fantasy baseball season starts in just a few days, but we’re still waiting for teams to put the finishing touches on their Opening Day rosters. And a big part of that for Fantasy Baseball players is figuring out who is going on the injured list to open the season and who isn’t.

And now, here’s a list of the top IL stashes to open the season, from players you must stash to those who are a total luxury if you have the IL spots to play with, with a tip of the cap to FanGraphs and Roster Resource’s Injury Report: 

Too valuable to drop, period

Also really difficult to drop

Still a priority on some level

Stashing is purely a luxury
