2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: TREA TURNER SUFFERS BROKEN FINGER

You knew the minute Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner got nailed in the fingers during the first inning of the team's game Tuesday night that it was going to be a major problem for his fantasy baseball owners just by the look of how much pain he was in after the HBP.  Turner was drilled when attempting a bunt and he immediately went to the ground in visual pain that quickly was followed him being ushered into the dugout.  When the injury updates were slow to come, I noted on Twitter that this usually indicated bad news.  This was confirmed a bit later when it was revealed Turner had suffered a broken index finger which will likely sideline him for a month and maybe as long as six weeks.  Given the fact that Turner was a first round pick in almost all fantasy baseball leagues and that he roared out of the gates with 2 home runs and 4 steals, his loss is as big as it gets save for a Mike Trout or a Mookie Betts.  A fully healthy Turner was capable of special five-category things but now he will be out until May in all likelihood.  Obviously you stash Turner away and look to someone like a Delino DeShields Jr. in order to replace your steals from the waiver wire.
