Would you think he'd be a full time player? Byrnes, Young, and Upton?


milb.com is where I always go. Sporstsline doesn't always have this year's stats.

What kind of players would you guys keep Upton over in a keeper league for NEXT year?

I may have missed something here, but couldn't this just be a call up to AAA?

depends on your keeper format, and what he does for the rest of the year. I know I won't keep them, because we keep 5 as our first 5 picks, and I wouldn't keep him in the top 5 even if he put up decent numbers.

Everything that the DBacks have been saying about Upton over the last month or two has given the indication that when (or if) he gets the call, it will be straight from AA. They know he is ready, they won't waste their time giving him a month or two in AAA first.

Right, I just mean what other players have comparable value overall. For example, I keep 12. Would you rate him higher than guys like Delmon Young, Jeff Francoeur, Brad Hawpe, etc.
