Fantasy Impact:

It's considered a minor issue. However, Downs has been one of the biggest prospect "fallers" this season. The 23-year-old is hitting just .179 in 81 games for Triple-A Worcester. Once viewed as Boston's second baseman of the future, Downs will enter the offseason as a legitimate long-term question mark for the organization.
