Fantasy Impact: Heredia had surgery to repair a tear of his shoulder labrum that resulted in a chronic shoulder separation during the course of the 2017 campaign. According to Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto, Heredia had to have the dislocated shoulder put back in place on at least four separate occasions during the course of the year, which likely effected his performance offensively. The 26-year-old Cuban outfielder finished the season with a .249/.315/.337 slash line with 43 runs, six homers and 24 RBIs in 386 at-bats. He is expected to compete for the starting center field role next season.
