2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: MIGUEL CABRERA DONE FOR 2018, LOOKING DONE FOR FANTASY BASEBALL

The big news of the day in fantasy baseball Tuesday was learning that Detroit Tigers first baseman/DH Miguel Cabrera would miss the remainder of the 2018 season due to needing surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left biceps.  The devastating injury puts a bow on what has been nothing but an injury-marred campaign that continued from 2017 when his offensive numbers cratered terrible as Cabrera's back became a major issue.  Now that he will be turning 36 next April and has had back-to-back seasons of nothing but health woes, we have clearly reached the point where Cabrera is just a name brand best left avoided in yearly fantasy baseball leagues.  I have stated on too many occasions to count that big-bodied sluggers like Cabrera never age well (Ryan Howard, Prince Fielder, Carlos Lee anyone?) and that his health will continue to betray him.  It has been a fun ride as Cabrera became the most feared hitter in the game in his prime but the current situation says that he is nothing but a shell of his former self as he wasn't even hitting for power before the biceps issue.
