2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: AND CARLOS CARRASCO IS HURT AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Few pitchers have been more dominant than Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco this season as he went into Monday's outing with a splendid 1.86 ERA and 0.77 WHIP while also striking out 46 batters in 48.1 innings. Long on major talent, Carrasco was seemingly held back each and every season due to injury.  While he had a rough spring training, Carrasco really turned it on when the games began to count as shown by his ace-like pitching.  It appears as though Carrasco's injury luck has run out already this season as he exited Monday's start after 3.2 innings with an undisclosed ailment.  Carrasco didn't have it from the start as he got rocked for five earned runs in those four innings and perhaps most alarming, his velocity dropped very sharply as the outing went along.  The Indians will have an update soon but the vast drop in velocity is a major red flag that could lead to some serious trouble.  Stay tuned.
