FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: BRAVES COULD SHIFT KRIS MEDLEN TO BULLPEN

                                                                             

Having potentially six starters for five rotation slots, the Atlanta Braves are openly discussing moving Kris Medlen to the bullpen in order to open up a spot for Brandon Beachy who is close to returning to the club.  While Medlen has claimed he would rather be a starter, he also called himself a "team player."  With Julio Teheran pitching well since the end of April, the choice will come down to him and Medlen as far as who goes.

Analysis:  This could be awful news for Medlen's fantasy baseball owners who are now enjoying his best stretch of pitching of the season.  Teheran was destined to the the guy to go but he has been money over his last five outings.  Meanwhile Medlen has experience pitching out of the bullpen and is also looking at a major jump in innings this season that has the team concerned.  If Medlen does wind up going to the pen, than his value vanishes overnight.
