What's his value for the rest of the season in redrafts? in dynasties?

With the Morgan deal, I can't see his redraft value being anything. Even if he gets called back up, I can see playing time becoming very sporadic.

In a dynasty, I'd hang on to him if you can because he does have a lot of talent. If the switch ever goes on, he does have 25-25 potential...

I know this is the second team he's struggled with, but at least he doesn't seem like as much of a douche since he's been in WAS. With the way Milledge has been handled by the Nats, I'd be intrigued if he got another change of scenery...

Depends where he's traded to, whether he can start or not.
I think it's a given he's being traded at this stage. :-?

Million dollar body, ten cent head.
If he gets traded into semi regular playing time though I'd be intrigued.

I'm sure glad a trade offer I made at the beginning of the season of Shin Soo for Dukes got turned down.

zero in redrafts

depending on the price, I look to acquire him in dynasties though. Too much talent to not take a chance on for the future, but we're talking minimal givings, a replaceable 35 yo MR maybe.

Yeah, in redrafts he's definitely crap. In leagues with deep keeper lists and dynasty leagues you have to keep him for now, he's got too much talent.

In re-draft leagues, definitely time to cut bait. In dynasty leagues, I'd be looking to acquire him, as he's shown flashes of his talent, and he's likely to come at the reduced price of a half finished box of crack jacks.

After going 2 for 3 tonight, Dukes hitting 5 for 10 with a 1 HR in the 3 games since his demotion (2 Ks and 2 BBs).
