2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: KEVIN GAUSMAN EXITS AFTER COLLISION

Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman was forced out of his spring start Monday after being involved in a collision while tracking a fly ball behind home plate.  Gausman collided with Tigers outfielder Jeimer Candelario who was in the on-deck circle and was soon locked at by a trainer.  It appeared the trainer was gauging whether or not Gausman had suffered a concussion and he soon left the field to be tested.  Candelario himself exited the game with a knee injury suffered in the collision but the bigger news from a fantasy baseball perspective is Gausman.  While concussions are nothing to sneer at, the fact is doesn't appear to be related to Gausman's arm or knees is a big deal.  If a concussion is diagnosed, expect Gausman to miss his next spring start in order to be cautious but overall this doesn't appear to be a big deal.  Gausman has some remaining upside in terms of fantasy baseball but being in the AL East is never a positive and he remains quite hittable to this point in his career.
