2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: DREW SMYLY MEET STEVEN MATZ

Steven Matz understands.  All the New York Mets lefty has to do is look at counterpart Drew Smyly of the Seattle Mariners which would elicit an nod of his head of understanding regarding the latest injury that took down the latter.  Smyly will be out the next 6-8 weeks with what the team is calling a dreaded flexor strain in his elbow and that injury is quite scary as it often is a precursor to Tommy John surgery.  The hard-throwing and still young Smyly fits the bill of a prospective Tommy John candidate as does Matz who already has had the operation.  Also like with Matz, Smyly can't ever seen to stay on the mound given rampant arm/elbow injuries.  While Smyly was a big disappointment last season with the Tampa Bay Rays, his high-K stuff and big ballpark in Seattle made him a bit SP 5 interesting again.  Unlike Matz though, Smyly is not worth keeping around on your roster and so those who have shallow benches need to cut him loose.  Potential only gets you so far in fantasy baseball as we have seen countless times before.
