2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: MICHAEL CONFORTO SEEMS READY TO MAKE TRIUMPHANT RETURN

                                                               

While we always advise holding your fantasy baseball drafts as close to the start of the season as possible in order to steer clear of any exhibition injuries (right Justin Turner owners?), the one advantage of holding them early in spring training is that some undervalued players that could pay off big when the games begin to count could start to become pricey again.  Such is the case now with New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto, who up until his return to game action a few days ago, was being drafted in the middle rounds as he was forecasted to miss all of April recovering from serious shoulder surgery last summer.  Well don't look now but it appears as though Conforto is set to make a triumphant return to the Mets and at the same time, reward those owners who bought low on him this spring.  The latest piece of evidence was Conforto homering twice during a minor league scrimmage Wednesday and then pronouncing himself "closer" in terms of being game-ready.  With no setbacks to speak of, Conforto may need only a week or two of April to get himself ready to return to the Mets.  This is fantastic news as Conforto has a world of talent and the natural power to be a perennial 30-homer star.  The big concern with the shoulder dislocation he suffered last summer was that perhaps maybe his home runs swing would not be as potent but that doesn't seem to be the problem now.  Dive fully in now on Conforto who still can hit 30 homers with a .280 or so average even if he does miss the first week or two.
