2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: JUSTIN UPTON (TOE) DOWN 8-12 WEEKS

In one of the bigger early season injuries, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Justin Upton will miss the next 8-12 weeks with a toe ailment that first flared up early in spring training.  While the details are so far scarce in terms of whether or not Upton suffered a setback after just recently returning to active duty, he is now looking like he won't return until late June which is a tremendous blow to his fantasy baseball owners.  While Upton is aging a bit and has a pronounced strikeout issue, he has been one of the more durable players in the game since breaking in as a pro and his overall game annually placed him in the low-end OF 1 tier.  The toe injury has taken a sledgehammer to any Upton projection though and so the only thing to do is stash him for the second half.
