2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: CLAYTON KERSHAW (BACK) TO MISS 4-6 WEEKS

The news is in on Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and it is not good as he will now miss AT LEAST the next 4-6 weeks due to the back injury that took him out of his Sunday start.  Kershaw will head to see Dr. Robert Watkins for confirmation but it looks like the Dodgers and his fantasy baseball owners will be without his extremely dominant services until September.  This is about as big an injury hit as one can take in fantasy baseball and it comes on the heels of Carlos Correa having gone down for two months with a recent thumb injury.  The timing is never ideal for any of this but Kershaw's loss is as big as it gets in terms of fantasy baseball and now the Dodgers will have to dive in and secure a pitcher on the trade front.  Possibly targets are Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish or Detroit's Justin Verlander; not to mention Sonny Gray from the Oakland A's.  Either way, Kershaw simply can't be replaced and so his owners are in a world of trouble here.
