Really though, it has to be a very deep league for someone to even have Rios on their roster let alone start the guy, There has to be someone better on the free agent wire in a 12 team league.
Umm I hate Rios. But you are talking about about a guy who is coming off of a bad year, who is a career .275 hitter with decent pop who will steal a few bags.
Maybe...What did he do last year? And he is like 1 hr and 4 RBIs with 1 SB this year. I understand he could bounce back...but he is still nothing special even if you give him the benefit of the doubt so far. Obviously I am not a believer as I have seen far too much garbage from the likes of Mr. Rios to ever want him on my roster. I read some stuff that he is going the opposite way more so maybe he is going to have a decent year for him, but I just would not want to deal with it. At a min you should hedge the bet and get a competent backup bench player. Lee is nothing special, but he is serviceable when you have 48 OFs being started.
If I were you I would look to deal Montero. You are never going to play him with Santana around and Butler in your Util slot so he is burning a hole in your roster at the moment. The occassional y off day start (assuming daily league) is not worth much. Trade him for an upgrade somewhere to free the bench spot and improve the team if you can.
