FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: ADRIAN GONZALEZ DOWN TWO WEEKS WITH TENNIS ELBOW

                                                           

Another day and another injury in fantasy baseball as Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez will sit the next two weeks of workouts on the sidelines due to a bout of tennis elbow.  Gonzalez felt pain in his elbow which now has his availability in doubt for the WBC.  He comes into the 2017 season off a rough 2016 campaign where he hit just 18 home runs but batted a solid .285 with 90 RBI.  With some serious shoulder trouble in his past, one has to wonder if Gonzalez's power is now in the decline phase.  Despite that, Gonzalez remains a big RBI guy in the middle of a solid lineup and his average has remained steady.  He no longer is worthy of being a starting fantasy baseball first baseman however and is more suited for a UTIL or CI spot.
