I have no clue on the injury he is coming back from. if fully healthy, should he be able to get back to where he was before? depending on whether Washington does or does not get Prince Fielder, LaRoche is likely to be the starting 1B for the Nationals in 2012. seeing how many games he missed in 2011 along with coming back from an injury people could completely forget about him on draft day.
Laroche is a huge value right now, very unwanted in drafts, if fielder doesnt happen. Thats even with assuming he has his usual bad/slow 1st half.
If he gets relegated to PH obviously that kills him but he could be shopped elsehwere to be a 1b/dh for another team if fielder comes in.
Though Nats are obviously atop the list of teams in on fielder its not 100%
the nats, and his, situation should be sorted out closer to regular drafts but I can confirm im drafting now and folks do not want him
its a shoulder injury torn labrum btw but he was out for a while and reports are good
Smaller leagues he might still be a FA type but single leagues or deeper formats hes a good risk right now
