2018 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING INJURY NEWS: DANIEL MURPHY RULED OUT FOR OPENER

                                                                   

As it was anticipated, Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy will begin the 2018 season on the DL as he continues to recover from offseason microfracture knee surgery.  While Murphy's recovery has been a bit on the slow side, he has been taking consistent batting practice and infield drills the last few weeks.  It is expected he will be able to return sometime in mid-April but there are some red flags here from a fantasy baseball angle given the seriousness of the surgery and for the fact Murphy is approaching his mid-30's.  The steals have long left the station here and so now Murphy has to continue hitting for a high average with the 25 home run power he began putting forth the last few seasons.  There is a bit of unknown with all of this and that is why we suggested avoided Murphy in drafts this spring.
