FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: GIANTS PLACE ACE MADISON BUMGARNER ON THE DL WITH GRADE 1-2 STRAIN OF SHOULDER

Oh my goodness.  When arguably the most durable big-name pitcher in fantasy baseball gets placed on the disabled list, the health epidemic that has ravaged this season so far has reached a new low.  The San Francisco Giants placed ace SP Madison Bumgarner on the 10-day DL Friday with a Grade 1-2 strain of his left shoulder AC joint suffered in a dirt bike crash that landed him in the hospital.  The first time Bumgarner has ever been placed on the DL as his durability is lauded as much as his incredible pitching.  While we have not been told how long Bumgarner will be out, this sounds like something that could sideline him for more than 10 days.  Also you wonder of Bumgarner will catch flak from the team for engaging in the dirt bike riding.  Either way Bumgarner owners have a huge loss on their hands as he is our number 3 ranked pitcher in fantasy baseball in sitting behind only Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer.  Stay tuned.
