Some well-known MLB pitchers are letting down their fantasy baseball owners this season, and some others are in danger of unraveling at the seams.
This week's theme is established commodities enduring some rough times. I'll highlight a couple of veterans with two very different struggles. While one looks fine after a closer look, there's more concern than at first glance for the other.
Two of last year's brightest young stars also find their spot in our starting lineups hanging in the balance. One is dusting off the cobwebs while the other forgot how to throw strikes.
There's also one young breakout performer whose early success will be tossed into the interrogation room. Spoiler alert from the introductory photo: It's Tom Koehler.
Let's put a few hurlers in the hot seat for this week's "Start 'Em or Sit 'Em Breakdown."
