2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: DJ LeMAHIEU PLACED ON 10-DAY DL MONDAY DUE TO HAMSTRING STRAIN
Having gotten off to a red-hot start to the season batting at or near the top of the Colorado Rockies lineup, second baseman DJ LeMahieu caught quite a bit of attention from the fantasy baseball community when he came out and smashed 5 home runs in the month of April which if the season ended today, would be 6 fewer than he hit for all 2017. Known primarily as a two-category guy whose value was built almost solely on his ability to hit .300 and score a bunch of runs, the power outburst was eye-opening due to the fact LeMahieu only once reached double-digits in home run in 7 previous MLB seasons. While that early flurry slowed down considerably the last two weeks, LeMahieu was still batting .290 with 12 RBI and 17 runs with 3 steals before he suffered a left hamstring strain that ultimately necessitated a 10-day DL stint Monday. The Rockies were speaking optimistically about LeMahieu only needing the minimum amount of time on the DL and so he should be stashed in almost all fantasy baseball formats. Again, I am not buying the early home run push but instead continue to respect LeMahieu as a low-end daily fantasy baseball second baseman due to his .300 average and boatload of runs with some steals thrown in as a bonus.
