2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: DANNY SALAZAR FACING UPHILL BATTLE TO BE READY FOR OPENER

Cleveland Indians hard-throwing starting pitcher Danny Salazar has a unique love-hate relationship with many in the fantasy baseball community.  On the one hand, we all are seduced by Salazar's 100-mph fastball and insane strikeout rates since he became a regular with the Indians a few years back.  On the flip side, we grow very frustrated with Salazar's endless walks and penchant for getting hurt.  2017 saw a combination of all those issues and as far as 2018 is concerned, we now get word that Salazar may not be ready to answer the bell when the regular seasons begins as he sits a "few weeks" behind the rest of the rotation according to manager Terry Francona due to a January bout with right shoulder rotator cuff inflammation.  The fact Salazar is already dealing with injury speaks to how risky a player he is to invest in and 2018 is looking like it will be no different.  Again, the potential is massive here as Salazar is capable of a monster ace season like rotation-mate Carlos Carrasco had a year ago but he may eventually need a bullpen gig given the fact starting keep leading to injuries.  Be that as it may, we are in a clear holding pattern with Salazar for 2018 fantasy baseball.  On the one hand, he should come much cheaper at the draft table this spring which could lead you to invest yet again but the fact he is injured already leads one to believe it could be another frustrating go of it this season.
