2014 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: MARINERS SHUT DOWN TAJAUAN WALKER (SHOULDER) FOR A WEEK, MAY NOT BE READY FOR START OF SEASON

                                                     
 
The Seattle Mariners have shut down top pitching prospect Tajuan Walker due to ongoing soreness in his pitching shoulder.  An exam revealed an inflamed bursa sac in Walker's shoulder but no structural issues were discovered. 
 
Analysis:  Lots of shoulder and calf ailments early in camp and it is a bummer what is going on with Walker who is considered the top pitching prospect in all of baseball and who was likely to start the 2014 season in the rotation if healthy.  Walker is starting to run out of time to be ready to go for Opening Day and he could be looking at a Cole Hamels situation where he gets back around April 15th if no other issues are found.  For the time being slightly downgrade Walker on your cheat sheets but not too far as he has immense upside.
