2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: LEWIS BRINSON SITTING BOTH GAMES OF YANKEE SERIES, DEMOTION COULD BE IMMINENT

                                                                  

For the second season in a row, consensus top outfield prospect Lewis Brinson is struggling to hit major league pitching and things have now reached the point where manager Don Mattingly already came out on Monday and said he would sit for the entire two-game series versus the New York Yankees in a "clear his head" strategy.  Things are already hitting rock bottom for Brinson who has one single hit in his last 36 at-bats and his K/9 rate is an obscene 30.3 percent going into Monday's slate.  Down to just a .131 average with zero home runs and just one steal, Brinson could be nearing a demotion back to the minors since the Marlins have nothing to play for and don't want to damage his confidence moving forward. Brinson's struggle mirror those of the Minnesota Twins' Byron Buxton who has a similar power/speed game but who also had major problems hitting major league pitching his first few years in the majors.  Anyone who owns stock in Brinson needs to bench him outright and only put him back in when he finally puts some hits together.  All in all though, things are not going well here by any means this season.
