2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MORE ELBOW WOES SEND DAVID PRICE BACK TO THE DL

It has been a season to forgot for Boston Red Sox well-paid lefty David Price to say the least.  From run-ins with reporters and one Mr. Dennis Eckersley to elbow trouble that had Price on the DL to begin the year, 2017 surely has not gone according to plan both for player and his fantasy baseball owners.  Well it looks like we have reached a new low as Price was placed back on the DL Friday with a renewed bout of elbow soreness and his immediate outlook is quite murky to say the least.  There were some whispers that Price might eventually need Tommy John surgery but no MRI results have come out yet to shed more light on that.  Instead what we have now is an extremely depressed fantasy baseball stock and now a team in the Red Sox who may have to jump into the trade talks for Sonny Gray, Justin Verlander, and Yu Darvish as the New York Yankees continue to put heat on them in the division.  If you are a Price owner and are tired of the act, feel free to cut him loose.  Price is more hittable than ever, his velocity continues to dip, and his elbow is a ticking time bomb.  It is getting late in the season and you simply can't wait for injured and flaed players to get back healthy.
