2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: DANIEL MURPHY LIKELY OUT UNTIL MAY WITH FRACTURED FINGER

There were quite a bit of high expectations attached to veteran 1B/2B Daniel Murphy heading into the 2019 fantasy baseball season as the smooth-swinging stud signed a free agent deal with the Colorado Rockies to add even some more bite to his already terrific offensive game.  Unfortunately, the fun didn't last long as Murphy suffered a fractured finger while trying to make a diving stop at first base during Friday's game and the injury is expected to keep him out for most or all of April.  This is a decent-sized blow as Murphy's well-established.300 stick was likely going to see a boost in home runs and RBI while playing half his games in Coors Field but now that fun will have to wait for awhile.  The fallout here now centers on Ryan McMahon earning more starts at first base, while the speedy Garret Hampson will get more of a look at second.  Both McMahon and Hampson carry decent upside in terms of fantasy baseball given their Coors Field backdrop and as far as Murphy is concerned, just stash him away as he is way too talented to cut loose despite the absence.
