FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: COLBY LEWIS DOWN TWO MONTHS WITH STRAINED LAT

The pitching injuries just keep on coming as it was learned Wednesday Texas Rangers veteran starter Colby Lewis would miss the next two months with a lat injury.  Lewis was in the midst of a terrific season where he registered a splendid 3.21 ERA and 1.01 WHIP while striking out 61 batters in 98 innings. While Lewis had benefitted from some generous BABIP luck, he is a decent enough loss for his fantasy baseball owners who got SP 3/4 numbers out of a guy who was a very late round pick or more likely was a waiver grab.  Lewis has been no stranger to injury in his career and the time he spent in Japan throwing a high number of pitches no doubt an be blamed some.  Overall though, Lewis can be cut in all leagues outside of AL-only.  His expected BABIP regression and low K rate make him a prime candidate to struggle when he does get back onto a mound.
