I guess the Brewers are going to keep him up. Is he worth a roster spot in a deep Dyansty league or is he just a player that has a name from the past?

I think he will be used primarily as a pinch runner as he has some speed. I don't see him having much value this year, but he may develop into a #4 OF in fantasy leagues...

May develop into a 4th OF in his career or this year?

I don't understand the Brewers fascination with him. I see him developing into a 4th OF for the Brewers, not a 4th OF for a fantasy team.

Not the contact hitter his father was, not a power hitter at all, but does have speed. Not a great arm, but very good otherwise on defense. That's a 4th OF to me.

Plus, when is a spot going to open for him? Maybe they move Hall to LF after this year, when Jenkins leaves. Then the competition would be between Nix and Gwynn for CF. I actually like Nix better in that situation.

Please notice that it is junior, not senior.

He's not worth a fantasy roster spot. He's gonna have a hard time getting any playing time this year. Billy Hall and Corey Hart have 2 spots pretty well locked up. Jenkins and Mench will be splitting time at the other corner.
