2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: JOSE ABREU DIAGNOSED WITH HAMSTRING STRAIN

                                                           

With just a little more than a week to go before the start of the 2018 fantasy baseball season, the injuries are coming fast and furious and to big-name players as well.  Just one day after Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was lost until the end of May with a broken wrist due to an HBP, Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was diagnosed with a strained hamstring on Tuesday.  What becomes very crucial now is the severity of the strain as anything more than a Level 1 means Abreu will begin the year on the disabled list.  The timing of course is brutal here as Abreu is a top 5-6 fantasy baseball first baseman this season everywhere and his ultra-consistency with his offensive numbers since coming over from Cuba made him a great buy at the draft.  Stay tuned for an update here but be prepared to have a backup handy in case the DL is necessary.
