With David Ortiz on the Dl already, I really don't know if I can afford to have VMart taking up a bench spot
I know what you mean. I have Pena and Tulo currently on the DL, and I have only one DL spot and a short bench. I picked up Doumit to replace VMart, and already got more power production from him in his first at bat for me than VMart has provided all year. I hate to lose VMart, but I just don't know if it makes any sense to wait for him, especially when his season was already shaping up to be a write-off before this latest development.
Is this the kind of thing where he'll come back from rehab and feel good (ie. better than he felt before he was taken out of the lineup), or will he take weeks/months to get his game back? If it's the latter, I think it's pretty hard to justify not cutting bait.
