Alex Rios?

He's been retty aweful since returning from the DL. Anyone seen him play? How's his swing look?

If he continues this slump and stays in the 6 hole in that lineup, does he become expendable?

You need to be patient with Rios at this point. I wouldn't be starting him if I had another option. He was on a hospital bed for 10 days and some say he lost 15 pounds. He was a month out and for the most part he did not touch a baseball. It's like spring training for him again. His timing is a little off right now and he won't be hitting for much power either, but he'll come around.

If he's expendable...that would depend on your league. I remember seeing him leading off the other day, but I would be surprised if they left him on the 6th spot for now.

I somehow got Juan Rivera in this league last week. I am happy about it because I traded away Sizemore and Rios was going to be my 3rd OF. I still think Rios will be ok though.
