FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: NATS COULD CALL UP TREA TURNER BY END OF WEEKEND

There was more than a little disappointment when the Washington Nationals decided to go with veteran Danny Espinoza at shortstop to begin the 2016 season over talented prospect Trea Turner but it looks like the team could be ready to remedy what is looking like a mistake on that front.  According to a Nationals team source, Turner is expected to be promoted by the end of the weekend if Espinoza continues to perform woefully with the bat as he has done through the first week-plus.  Turner has stolen three bases already at Triple-A and his high contact rate would go well on an infield that has Daniel Murphy.

Analysis:  If Turner is available, pick him up immediately.  Turner has terrific wheels that are capable of stealing 30 bases and he also has the batting eye and patience to post a tidy average.  Decent upside here which should not be sitting on any waiver wire.
