Not sure why. I just kinda think he should have a thread this year.

Are we guessing time spent on the DL or what?

:-D

Of course he could be great, but there's just no reason to think he'll stay healthy, and the frustrations of owning him to me are not worth it.

I wanted to keep him on my team for his power but there are too many question marks and not enough room on the bench.

At this point I feel he is a UT player only. You can't trust him to perform at even a CI type level. He has to be the last hitter in your lineup and replaceable by any hitter in baseball to have any value.

Figure 500 at bats 20/75/75/.280 in a very good Texas lineup.

I totally disagree.
If he is healthy he is gold for where he is drafted.
I don't think he'd be my starting 3B at this stage (or any), but IF/CI for sure. ;-D

Well....yeah. Isn't that kinda missing the point though.



Short bench or a league with a moves limit, then....

He's the primary DH this year and likely batting 5th. The DH role will give him the best opportunity of his career to stay healthy, and the four guys hitting ahead of him and kinda good. Honestly, he's a steal where he's getting drafted considering his dual eligibility and upside. Low risk, Moderate/High reward.

Drafted him as a Bench/UTIL guy in two leagues and I'm hoping he's at least worth that... Banking on the DH keeping him healthy...
