2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: BROKEN WRIST FOR JUSTIN TURNER LIKELY TO KEEP HIM OUT UNTIL END OF MAY

                                                              

The regular season in Major League Baseball is only about a little more than a week away and this is always a time of angst for those in the fantasy baseball community who have drafted their teams and now are simply holding their breath hoping no one gets hurt before the openers.  Well that hope ran out for those who own Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner who saw him suffer a broken wrist due to a hit by pitch Monday and the early word is that he will be out until as long as June which of course is a brutal development so close to the beginning of the season.  The loss of Turner is certainly a bit one as he is one of the best pure hitters in baseball and he has really ramped up the power the last few seasons as well.  Last season, for example, Turner batted a scorching .322 and added 21 home runs in just 457 at-bats.  Unfortunately, Turner only received 457 at-bats due to the fact he got injured AGAIN and he is now firmly gaining a reputation of being a guy who every season sits out an extended time with some sort of health woe.  This is of no consolation to Turner's owners now however but luckily third base is quite deep and so there should be a decent enough option resting on the waiver wire in your league or hopefully, you have some good depth.  Be that as it may, there is no way to sugarcoat the fact that the loss of Turner is certainly not the way his fantasy baseball owners wanted to begin the season.
