2018 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: MIGUEL SANO DEMOTED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO HIGH-A

Having already stated my strong opinion to avoid Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano for 2018 fantasy baseball due to what I felt was a vastly overrated/strikeout-prone power game, anyone had to be shocked when we learned Thursday that he had been demoted all the way down to High-A in the minors.  Previously dogged by allegations of domestic violence, Sano dealt with injuries the first two months of the season and was woeful at the dish to the tune of a .203 average and a downright hideous .40.5 K/9 rate.  The fact of the matter is that Sano was becoming an automatic out and the Twins clearly are trying to light a fire under him with the demotion to High-A.  Sano will have to revamp his swing in order to work his way back to the Twins as his current approach simply is not working.  While some in deeper formats may want to hold Sano, I would suggest cutting him loose in all fantasy baseball formats given the fact we don't know how long he will be on the farm and since he has been nothing but putrid when in the majors this season.
