2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: MARK MELANCON COULD BEGIN YEAR ON DL DUE TO ONGOING ARM DISCOMFORT

                                                              

It didn't take long for San Francisco Giants closer Mark Melancon to annoy his fantasy baseball owners to no end as we now get word that the former All-Star may begin the 2018 season on the DL due to admittedly still feeling pain in his pitching arm.  Coming off surgery last September to remedy a problem in his pronator area, Melancon had admitted that his arm has been an issue pretty much for all of spring training and that is obviously a tremendous red flag going into the new year.  Already showing as diminished fastball and stuff that was more hittable than ever a year ago, Melancon's career is beginning to quickly spiral out of control.  The fallout here centers on Sam Dyson taking over the role if Melancon were to in fact begin the year on the DL and that also is a very scary proposition considering how horrible Dyson pitched for large stretches of 2017.  To drive that point home, Dyson got destroyed all spring which makes picking him up something that may hurt you more than help you.  In fact, it would be better to take a chance on the more effective Tony Watson as the Giants have nothing to lose by going that route.  Already having lost pitchers Jeff Samardzjia and Madison Bumgarner to injuries, the Giants' season is already going into the toilet.
