Chris Snelling is a free agent in my AL-Keeper league. In everything I read about him, they mention that he has a huge amount of talent, but trouble staying healthy. He started this season at AA and has since moved up to AAA, posting a .300+ Batting average at both stops. Is he worth picking up and storing away at this point? I can keep up to 15 players. What do you think he'll do in the future, and does he have the chance to take over for Randy Winn after this year?
A player in the minors with an injury history? I'd probably pass.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
I have heard alot of good things about Snelling...but the one bad thing is his injury history...Unless you are in a very deep AL keeper (12 teams or more)...I would pass on him...even with 15 keeper, I think he will be availible in the draft next year.....

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.
Thanks for the response. I've decided to pass on him.
My keeper league goes by the players in Yahoo. A player is only eligible to be kept for the following year if he started the current year in the AL-Player pool, so players like Teixiera, Gobble, and Harden cannot be kept and will enter the draft next year. Snelling was a rare prospect that started the season in the player pool, so I could have grabbed him this year and held onto him.
