In this apocalyptic season of massive injury in fantasy baseball, the consensus by a mile number 1 player in the game became the latest victim of this scourge on Sunday when it was revealed Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout would unbelievably miss the next 6-8 weeks due to a torn thumb ligament that will require corrective surgery. Obviously Trout's injury is literally as big as it gets in fantasy baseball and even five outfield replacements combined wouldn't be able to replace the insane five tool production he brings to the table. The real shame of it all is that Trout was on his way to a truly historic season as he was hitting .337 with 16 home runs, 36 runs, 36 RBI, and 10 stolen bases. The comparisons to Mickey Mantle are spot on here and so the game of baseball without Trout is a major shame. There is simply no way to recover from a Trout loss and once again we are reminded that in 2017, league winners will likely be the ones who dodged the most injury bugs.
