2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: MICHAEL CONFORTO (SHOULDER) ACTIVATED FROM DL

                                                                 

Well, this was a nice surprise.  The New York Mets activated All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto from the 10-day DL on Thursday and he will be in the starting lineup for that afternoon's matinee versus the Philadelphia Phillies.  Conforto wound up making tremendous progress in his recovery from surgery to correct a dislocated shoulder last summer and he has hit for good power during his limited exhibition and simulated games during spring training to allay some fears he would have diminished pop due to the seriousness of the procedure. 

Analysis:  All Conforto fantasy baseball owners win big here as they will get virtually an entire season from a guy who was being drafted with the thought he would not return until May.  Conforto is still getting better performance-wise and he should be in line for about 30 home runs and 90 RBI with a decent average if all breaks right.
