2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: JED LOWRIE ON WAY BACK TO NEW YORK TO GET KNEE LOOKED AT

When it comes to injury news, the New York Mets have the market cornered the last few seasons as they have been at or near the top of MLB in games missed due to health concerns.  It took only a few days of spring training for the trend to continue as new infield arrival Jed Lowrie is now headed back to New York to get an MRI on his sore knee.  The knee has been bothering Lowrie for more than a week now and so the team felt it was prudent to receiver a closer look at the joint.  Signed to primarily play third base, Lowrie was an All-Star in 2018 when he clubbed 23 home runs with 99 RBI and batted. 267 for the Oakland A's.  Now in terms of fantasy baseball, Lowrie is a borderline starter in deeper mixed leagues and obviously has more value in NL-only.  Now the MRI could be just precautionary in nature but this is something that bears watching for the time being with regards to Lowrie's immediate outlook.
