2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: POSSIBLE TOMMY JOHN ON TAP FOR A.J. PUK

Here we go again.  Tell me where you have heard this before:  A young.hard-throwing pitcher comes down with elbow pain and then is found to have a compromised UCL that will require Tommy John surgery.  This line of news has been written or reported seemingly non-stop over the last five seasons and we are well past the point of epidemic proportions.  This is why I say every season to try and avoid young pitchers who throw hard no matter how alluring the player may be.  Add Oakland A's top pitching prospect A.J. Puk to this ever-growing list as reports indicate there is an issue with his UCL and is headed for a dreaded second opinion.  Already there are whispers Tommy John surgery is needed and so we have to go with that assumption which means Puk will be out for all of 2018.  Hope you are feeling lucky if you are a Carlos Carrasco, Noah Syndegaard, Daniel Duffy, Luis Castillo, Robbie Ray, and on and on it goes.
