2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: WILLIE CALHOUN OPTIONED TO TRIPLE-A IN SHOCKER

                                                                

Damn.  In what can only be considered a moderate shocker, the Texas Rangers optioned top outfield prospect Willie Calhoun to Triple-A on Tuesday despite putting up good numbers in spring training.  Universally considered a top prospect in all of baseball due to his advanced for his years hitting ability, Calhoun gets squeezed out for what looks like a silly platoon involving Ryan Rua and Drew Robinson.  The Rangers could also be sending Calhoun down to delay his arbitration clock by a year as well so no need to do something rash like cutting him loose just yet.  In terms of ability, Calhoun is the rare hitting prospect who can hit .300 with 30 home run power right from the jump and he needs to be owned in all fantasy baseball mixed leagues no matter how long he spend at Triple-A to begin the season.
