2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: SHOULDER STRAIN LIKELY TO KEEP DIDI GREGORIOUS OUT UNTIL MAY

Wow.  The news is not good when it comes to New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious who came down with a shoulder injury during his stint with Team Netherlands in the WBC.  Further testing while back in Tampa with the Yanks confirmed that Gregorious suffered a right shoulder strain that will likely keep him out for most or all of April.  Coming off a nice breakout season in 2016 when he reached the 20-home run plateau, Gregorious will now be replaced by Tyler Wade to begin the year.  While Gleybar Torres has been insane in hitting well over .400 this spring for the team, GM Brian Cashman has been adamant that his shortstop prospect will start in the minors.  Clearly the Yanks are concerned about rushing Torres but they also want to save an arbitration year as we see with almost all top prospects.  Not a good situation for Gregorious owners but nothing disastrous either.
