honestly, i think you should do it as late as possible. with names like Wood, Prior, Ordonez and Bonds dropping precipitously this year, that can really make you team into a contender. see Jason Schmidt's AVG position last year for example-coming off surgery, and having a horrible spring, i would guess he dropped to at least the 5th RD if not later, and of course, put up 2nd 3rd rnd value.
otoh, Nomo had off-season surgery, had a terrible spring, dropped big time in the draft and went to the bullpen
