2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: THORACIC OUTLET SURGERY LIKELY TO KEEP TYSON ROSS OUT FOR ARPIL

On the heels of New York Mets ace Matt Harvey being forced to undergo the very serious and scary thoracic outlet surgery, Tyson Ross of the San Diego Padres will join him in that unfortunate grouping of pitcher which threatens the start of his 2017.  Ross of course comes off a truly forgettable 2016 season where he made just one start before hitting the DL with shoulder soreness.  A series of setbacks later and Ross was done for the remainder of the year.  Now word has come down Thursday that Ross needs thoracic outlet syndrome and this is a very disturbing turn of events due to the fact the surgery has ruined careers such as Jeremy Bonderman's or Noah Lowry.  Both Bonderman and Lowry were promising young power arms who were never the same after the surgery and this is the concern for both Harvey and Ross in 2017.  While Harvey had the surgery in the middle of 2016 which should have him ready for April, Ross' late start means his first month of 2017 is in doubt.  While Ross has all the talent in the world as a major strikeout pitcher, he should not be drafted as anything but an SP 5 for fantasy baseball purposes next March.
