What does everyone think of him. Should he be added even though he is not playing yet?

yeah but the guy is raking. I know that they tried him out at 2nd. Any chance he gets the call for 2B? If not they could trade him and he could end up starting somewhere, however if that happens it is likely to be at the ASB

In a 12 teamer I don't think you can consider Stewart. Too many good players out there and you're left hoping for an injury/trade. Big difference from a Longoria/Rasmus/Bruce/Kershaw where you get the feeling that a promotion is inevitable (like in Longoria's case). but if you're in a 20 team league, there really isn't alot of talent on the WW. If you have a free spot it might not be a bad idea in that case.

I don't see Stewart getting the call to the big leagues again anytime soon, and even if he does, where would he play? I think the organization wants Ian to have a huge year down in AAA to force the club's hand with a decision about his future with the Rockies. He's off to a great start, and if he can keep it going he will force the issue at some point. I don't expect any midseason trades of either Stewart or Atkins, but in the offseason something could happen depending on Stewart's season in AAA and how a potential contract extension with Atkins would play out.

As for the second base question, I don't see it happening. Stewart really isn't built as a second baseman - it was experimented with in the spring but he didn't get a lot of time at the position and I don't think he'll be put back there.
