2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: J.D. MARTINEZ UNCERTAIN FOR OPENING DAY WITH FOOT SPRAIN

Detroit Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez likely avoided disaster when he came out of the team's exhibition game limping early Saturday but his status for Opening Day is very much in doubt after he was diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain.  Martinez was seen on crutches in the team's locker room but apparently no breaks or fractures were found.  A foot sprain is not such a small thing though as it can be a 7-14 day recovery timetable and that puts Martinez' Opening Day in doubt.  Yes there is still a chance Martinez will be able to go but consider that 50/50.  The bigger thing to take away from this is the fact Martinez avoided disaster and so his status as a .low-end outfielder 1 on the strength of a 30-home run and 90-RBI bat remains his expected output this season.
