Is he the everyday DH?
That's the way things look to start the year, yeah. Brett Lawrie is being developed in AAA at third, and if he got called up it would likely push Bautista back to RF (where he wants to be anyway) and move Rivera to a 4th OF/DH role. EE might get squeezed for ABs at that point, but I'm not worrying about it too much to start the year.
As for how long you can wait, I'd imagine that you'll be able to get him in 18th to 20th round this year no sweat, and maybe a lot later in some drafts, since he isn't even on some expert top 300 rankings. ESPN has him ranked at 196, but that's the nicest I've seen anyone be.
