2019 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ASTROS' LANCE McCULLERS TO UNDERGO TOMMY JOHN, DONE FOR 2019

The offseason got off to a brutal start for the Houston Astros as we learned late Tuesday that power pitcher Lance McCullers will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery which will sideline him for all of 2019.  The fact McCullers will have the surgery is not a total shock in that he made up the classic case of a young pitcher who had an average fastball above 94 and so this once again adds credence to the notion that hurlers who make up such a class need to be treated with extreme caution in fantasy baseball drafts next spring.  On another front, McCullers' loss likely means the Astros will now be contenders for some of the top arms on the market led by Patrick Corbin.
