2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: SALVADOR PEREZ DOWN 4-6 WEEKS AFTER TEARING MCL

                                                               

You just can't make this stuff up.  Just 24 hours before Opening Day, Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez will miss the next 4-6 weeks after tearing the MCL in his knee after falling while carrying his luggage.  Seriously.  All of Perez's fantasy baseball owners are likely sitting there with mouths agape over this and the loss is monstrous since he is one of just a handful of catchers who can supply some high-impact offensive numbers at the always shallow catcher position.  In 2018 Perez smacked 27 home runs and collected 80 RBI while batting .268 and so those are numbers that are almost impossible to replace at catcher.  Drew Butera will take his place but he has almost zero value.  Some possible replacements center on Russell Martin, Christian Vasquez, Chris Iannetta, and Jorge Alfaro but either way, this is a major gut punch with the season upon us.
