2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: DREADED OBLIQUE STRAIN TO SEND MITCH HANIGER TO THE DL

Oh boy.  From the start of spring training, one of the more talked-about storylines was the non-stop hitting of Seattle Mariners emerging outfielder Mitch Haniger.  The "other piece" that came to the Mariners in the Taijuan Walker trade, Haniger continued his big spring into the regular season as he went into Tuesday's action with a .321 average with 4 home runs and 2 steals.  Unfortunately the unfolding breakout will be put on hold as Haniger suffered an oblique strain during the team's Tuesday game versus the Detroit Tigers.  Haniger will certainly be placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday and he likely will be out beyond the initial 10 days given the fickle nature of the injury.  Just a tough blow for all Haniger owners who now have to face being without him well into May.
