What about Victor Martinez?

He's hitting .175 with 0 HRs, 2 R and 2 RBI...

He had a super year last year and his eligibilites are lovely. But, I think him and Uribe may have subpar years for fantasy UTIL guys.

Agree on Chone. With the emergence of Itzuris (basically a Chone-clone), Figgins may be trade bait by July when Kennedy is back. He might be able to fetch a nice starter or bullpen arm and a prospect from a team in need of a starter at 2b or crack utility man. He would look great on the Twins for instance and they have an abundance of high end pitching in the minors.

Eric Chavez is doing terrible right now and I'm very displeased with Vernon Wells' numbers so far, although I'm starting to think my expected bounce-back season from him was incorrect.

If you're looking for a player to pull from someone for cheap (although I don't know if he qualifies as a "quality" guy like some of these others mentioned) maybe try Juan Uribe. He's been awful to start the season but could be a great source of HRs if he stays in the lineup and gets out of this funk.

Then again, he'd probably be a throw-in player at best in a bigger deal.

JD Drew... two hits yesterday! MVP, here he comes!

Andruw started off slow, good game for him today. His plate patience has been really good so far, though.
