DL Guys Coming Back - Drop J.Montero or S.Perez? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Fri Jul 06, 2012 1:35 pm

Salvador Perez is outperforming Jesus Montero right now. But should I drop Montero to clear room for my DL guys? I could use the roster spot in the meantime to add an OF given Stanton's knee situation.

I think in a 12 team 1 catcher league you can safely drop either of them. I'm honestly not sure who I'd rather have ROS though. Montero has way more talent, but Perez has had better results at the MLB level. I'd probably go Perez by a hair if we're talking this year only.

It's really a coin toss--the best theory with catchers is to pick one and just leave it alone for the duration. Go with the hot hand and keep Perez.

If you can wait it out a little more, like another week, you might have your answer made up for you as the Mariners are discussing sending Montero down to the minors. If you have to make the move now, then that would be the move I would make I guess.

With other guys on the DL, you shouldn't need to clear room for any of the DL guys coming back (Note: Not sure on how long some of them are, but if some come back before others, just slide some of those DL'd bench players to the DL to activate).

As for dropping someone...you could probably drop Montero and pick up an OF. I really don't see a problem with it at all. As someone mentioned, I usually only carry one catcher on a team and just ride them out for the season.

I would drop montero out of those two... those DL guys are going to help a ton when they come back.
