2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: BREWERS FINALLY PLACE CHRISTIAN YELICH (OBLIQUE) ON THE DL

                                                              

After waiting a few days to see if the issue would improve, the Milwaukee Brewers were finally forced to place outfielder Christian Yelich on the 10-day DL Sunday due to the oblique strain he suffered in the middle of last week.  The DL stint was backdated to April 5th and Yelich is eligible to return April 15th.  It doesn't sound like a serious oblique strain since the Brewers thought there was a chance Yelich may be able to avoid the DL but you never can tell with these fickle injuries.  As far as the fallout for the rest of the team, Domingo Santana and Eric Thames have a more clear path to everyday playing time which boost their immediate outlook.  The real shame though is that Yelich's season is now interrupted amid some big expectations for 2018.  His swing is already as good as anyone's in the game and Yelich could boost his power as a lefty in his new home park.
