2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: MICHAEL CONFORTO (SHOULDER) HITTING OFF TEE

                                                                   

New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto is making steady progress in his recovery from a very serious shoulder operation last summer as he was able to hit off a tee Tuesday at the team's spring training complex.  While Conforto is not due back to the team until sometime in May after he severely dislocated his shoulder on a swing last summer, the fact he is hitting off a tee is a very positive development nonetheless.  The Mets and Conforto are sort of in uncharted injury territory as it is extremely rare for a hitter to dislocate his shoulder on something as routine as a swing and so trying to nail down exactly when he will be able to return is tough.  Be that as it may, Conforto was spectacular in his breakout campaign a year ago before the injury and his very depressed draft cost this time around makes him a potential steal if he can give you five good months.  Take today's news as a positive and feel a bit more secure in investing in Conforto going forward.
