2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: STEPHEN STRASBURG LANDS RIGHT BACK ON DL

When it comes to Washington Nationals ace starter Stephen Strasburg and annual fantasy baseball leagues, the scouting report on him has remained nearly the same for the last five-plus seasons in that he has ace power pitching ability but also a never-ending habit of spending at least one stint on the DL each year.  2018 has gone right according to the script as Strasburg has once again gotten injured and now is up to two DL stints after going back there Thursday morning.  Having missed six previous weeks with shoulder trouble, Strasburg has reinforced the notion that he is simply impossible to depend on in yearly fantasy baseball leagues and even beyond that fact, he is not pitching well as shown by an elevated 3.90 ERA.  While he remains as potent a strikeout artist as there is in all of fantasy baseball, he has only ONCE pitched more than 200 innings in a given season.  In other words, it is par for the course here as Strasburg is better left for someone else to deal with next season.
