FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: CARLOS CARRASCO DOWN 4-6 WEEKS WITH HAMSTRING

The news is in on Cleveland Indians budding ace Carlos Carrasco and it is not good as it was learned the hard-thrower would miss the next 4-6 weeks with a serious hamstring injury.  An MRI conducted on Carrasco's knee ruled out any damage in the joint but still he likely is dealing with at least a Grade 2 strain and maybe a 3 which is why he will be out so long.  Obviously this is a hue blow to those who own stock in Carrasco which includes this writer as his high-K ways were supplemented by one of the best hit rates in fantasy baseball and vastly improved control that pointed to him fulfilling ace promise in 2016.  Obviously you want to hold Carrasco due to his vast ceiling and already SP 2 numbers but the fact of the matter is that his loss is a big one.  Trevor Bauer will now move back into the rotation where he will likely continue with his all-or-nothing ways.  Bauer's control is always the biggest issue but he remains a potentially big strikeout pitcher who can help in short order.  Worth another stab to see if the gains he made this past spring training can carry over into the season.
