I was considering trading for Stewart in a keeper league with minor leaguers but I have Pujols as a keeper which would seriously lower Stewart's value to me.
From what I understand, he's not a great defender at 3rd base, but he's not terrible, so he could likely stay there for a few years. I think a lot depends on how Atkins hits. If he turns into a star, then Stewart becomes trade bait or Helton's heir apparent. If Atkins is merely average or below, then Stewart takes over at 3B when he's ready.
