2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: FORREST WHITLEY PINCHED 50 GAMES FOR PED'S

                                                                  

Ugh.  These guys never learn and I guess they start early as it was revealed Wednesday that top Houston Astros pitching prospect Forrest Whitley was suspended 50 games for a PED violation.  While it was not known what substance Whitley tested positive for, he is now going to be out for the 50 games and thus eat into a major chunk of development time prior to any possible promotion.  Prior to the suspension, Whitley was right there as one of the very best pitching prospects in baseball as he registered a 2.83 ERA and punched out a massive 143 innings in 92.1 innings last season in the minors but now any possible arrival with the Astros as soon as May will likely be pushed back until July or even later.  As a result, Whitley needs to be knocked down a few pegs in your cheat sheets with regards to 2018 fantasy baseball but he should still be a major person of interest given the talent level we are discussing.
