FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: CAREER-LONG INJURY WOES CONTINUE FOR BRETT ANDERSON

Another year and another major injury for Los Angeles Dodgers lefty starter Brett Anderson on Thursday as it was learned he would need back surgery to fix a bulging disk.  The very serious procedure will keep Anderson for up to five months.  While Anderson could return as soon as three months if all goes well, he will likely not throw one pitch during the first half of 2016 which is a big blow for the Los Angeles Dodgers and for those who own Anderson in deeper mixed leagues or NL-only formats.  Anderson has already logged two Tommy John elbow surgeries in his career and this just adds to the ongoing theme since he became a professional.  Unbelievably, Anderson actually stayed relatively healthy in 2015 as he pitched to a 3.69 ERA but his K rate is ordinary which lessens his fantasy baseball impact.  With Anderson being out for so long, he should be cut in all setups.
