2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: XANDER BOGAERTS (FOOT) THE LATEST BIG-NAME PLAYER TO HIT DL

                                                               

The hits just keep on coming early in the 2018 fantasy baseball season in terms of injuries taking down some big-name players from the get-go.  The latest involves the Boston Red Sox placing All-Star shortstop Xander Boagerts on the 10-day DL due to a bone injury in his foot.  Adding to the concern here is the fact Bogaerts is wearing a protective boot which is never a good sign and could be an indication that something more serious is going on here.  Coming off a 2017 campaign that saw Bogaerts' offensive game plummet after suffering a mid-year HBP to the wrist, we now have a foot injury that could keep him out awhile.  The real shame is that Bogaerts was off to a nice start with a .368 average and 2 home runs and 9 RBI through his first 9 games.  Obviously, Bogaerts should be stashed as he remains a firm top 10 fantasy baseball shortstop but he is also starting to earn an injury-plagued reputation in his young career.  Stay tuned for a more detailed update later in the afternoon.
