2017 FANTASY BASEBAL INJURY FALLOUTA; DISASTER STRIKES CARLOS CORREA WHO IS DOWN 6-8 WEEKS WITH TORN THUMB LIGAMENT

They don't get much bigger than this.  Tuesday it was learned that Houston Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa would miss the next 6-8 week with a torn ligament in his thumb.  Correa joins Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout as first round talents in 2017 fantasy baseball who have or will miss up to two months with serious thumb injuries.  As far as Correa is concerned, he suffered the tear during Monday's game while taking a swing and the 6-8 week timetable means he will be out until the middle of September which pretty much sticks a nail in his fantasy baseball coffin the rest of the way.  Prior to the injury, Correa was having a monster season with a .320 average, 20 home runs. 64 runs, and 67 RBI on the year.  While he no longer steals bases (a bagel on the year in that category), Correa was having an MVP campaign both in the real game and in fantasy baseball this season.  Clearly this is as big as it gets in terms of negative impact and now you have to expect the Astros will get involved in trade talks for Jed Lowrie, Asdrubal Cabrera, or maybe even Manny Machado.
