2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: LUIS SEVERINO SCRATCHED WITH SHOUDLER SORENESS

Here we go again!  Just weeks after Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw came down with a bout of shoulder soreness that likely will have him begin the 2019 season on the DL, now we get new that number 1 New York Yankees starter Luis Severino was scratched from his spring outing Tuesday with the same ailment.  As we have said too many times to count, shoulder woes for a pitcher is a serious as it gets since it often steals velocity and can quickly turn a very good pitcher into an ordinary one.  Perhaps we got a glimpse of potential trouble in Severino's shoulder during his downright brutal second half of 2018 after a Cy Young-worthy first and also keep in mind the young hurler has throw a TON of innings each of the last two seasons.  So what we have now is a big unknown in terms of severity and Severino has already been schedule for some testing which hopefully will add clarity to this.  Either way, Severino could have a tough time being ready to go for Opening Day given the likelihood he will be shut down for a bit and then have to ramp up again if cleared.  Those who already own stock in Severino could be in trouble here though so check back for some updates on this later.
