2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: SHOULDER TROUBLE THREATENS CLAYTON KERSHAW'S SPRING

Here we go again.  After a series of pronounced injuries over the last two seasons that went along with a noticeable dip in velocity, Los Angeles Dodgers ace starter Clayton Kershaw is dealing with a bout of shoulder soreness according to manager Dave Roberts.  While Roberts seem to make it a point to stress he think this is a short-term concern that doesn't threaten his Opening Day assignment, the act Kershaw is hurt again off health-plagued 2017 and 2018 campaigns.  And again this is a reminder of how we started sounded the alarm on Kershaw back in 2017 as the velocity began to dip and the home runs started flying out at a higher rate.  Those issues have only gotten worse since as Kershaw's average fastball velocity is now hovering around 90 and now this.  Once again we suggets staying far away from Kershaw this season as it is becoming quite obvious all those years of very heavy usage during his early 20's are now coming back to bite him.  We see this all too often with young arms who are not handled properly and with the Dodgers always playing into the postseason during Kershaw's tenure, the innings piled up beyond where they should have went.  Now Kershaw is paying for it and his fantasy baseball stock has never been lower.
