2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: BROKEN HAND TO SIDELINE JOSH HARRISON SIX WEEKS

                                                            

What we have quickly learned over the years in fantasy baseball is that when a hitter takes a pitch to the hand, 9 times out of 10 something bad will happen in terms of serious injury.  This often means a broken hand or finger and thus an expected sideline time of up to six weeks.  This is the exact scenario that took place Monday with Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Josh Harrison who learned he suffered a break in his left hand from an HBP Sunday and he is expected to miss around 6 weeks as a result.  Adam Frazier will likely pick up the slack in Harrison's absence but the fantasy baseball owners of the latter suffered a decent loss here since he was hitting .263 with 1 home runs and 1 stolen base and generally has been a very underrated power/speed guy in his career.  Stash him only in deeper leagues.
