Tough question due to I'm not entirely sold on LaRoche's injury not coming back on him since he never had surgery. Though I do think he is a safer bet to hit well for avg. and power in the majors. Braun doesn't have that good of plate discipline and before being promoted to AA his numbers weren't very good. For fantasy purposes though, if Braun can stay at 3B his SB totals would make a nice boost to his value.

Braun is starting to put it together but LaRoche already has it together. I'm with Hybrid with the injury concern but LaRoche is just better and has been better longer.

LaRoche > Braun
