2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: BIG SPRING FOR DIGI GREGORIOUS DERAILED BY WBC SHOULDER INJURY

                                                                  

Ahhhh the WBC.  Every fantasy baseball player dreads this annual exhibition given the chance of injury to prime hitters and pitchers, which invariably happens during the event.  This time around, we already have dodged a major injury scare with Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez and now we get news that New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious is headed for an MRI due to an injured shoulder.  Gregorious was being flown back from the WBC where he suffered the injury and the Yanks themselves have been very vague on what exactly took place there.  Meanwhile, Gregorious was having a big spring both with the Yankees and with team Netherlands in the WBC in hitting for authority and the power he showed last season.  While you don't like the fact Gregorious doesn't run much, he was quietly very good in 2016 with 20 home runs and a .276 average in 562 at-bats.  Gregorious still had a smidge of upside left to his name which makes his injury so much more disappointing.  Stay tuned for the MRI results but as always, prepare for the worst.
