2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: INCONCLUSIVE X-RAYS PERHAPS A BAD OMEN FOR FREDDIE FREEMAN

Oh boy.  Every fantasy baseball owner of Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman are holding their collective breath this morning (and have been since last night) after he exited in the fifth inning of the team's game against the Toronto Blue Jays after taking a pitch from Aaron Loup off his forearm/hand region and immediately grimacing in pain.  Freeman and the Braves training staff wasted no time heading into the locker room where X-rays were taken and adding to the angst, the results were inconclusive.  This then leaves open the possibility of a break or fracture of some sort and that would be devastating for Freeman's owners who were enjoying seeing him put up MVP numbers (.341, 14 HR).  An MRI will be taken early Thursday to further delve into this potential mess and so if a break is discovered, we are talking anywhere from a few weeks to over two months if surgery or a pin is needed to fix it.  Anytime an X-Ray is inconclusive, this generally means the team fears a break but won't go all the way in until the MRI proves it.  So my personal hunch is that Freeman could be in trouble but maybe he comes out all right.  Either way this is the story that takes center stage today.
