2018 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: BRENT HONEYWELL HEADED FOR TOMMY JOHN AFTER TORN UCL DISCOVERED

Updating an earlier item, Tampa Bay Rays top pitching prospect Brent Honeywell has a torn UCL in his elbow and will undergo Tommy John surgery that will keep him out for the entire 2018 season.  Honeywell left a throwing session in visible pain early on Thursday and while initial speculation by the team's front office believed the UCL was not involved, subsequent testing confirmed the tear and the need for surgery.  It has surely been an eventful few weeks for the Rays who have been torn apart in the media for their trades of Steven Souza and release of Corey Dickerson and now they lose one of their few positive talking points before a spring game was even played.  This is the same scenario that unfolded last spring with top St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Alex Reyes and it is another reminder that young starters who throw hard (looking at you Noah Syndegaard, Carlos Martinez, Aaron Nola, Lance McCullers, Luis Castillo, Dinelson Lamet) are very big risks for 2018 fantasy baseball.
