Replacement for Zimmerman

Postby pcm4 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 2:51 pm

So it looks like Zimmerman is going to miss some time because of his shoulder. I'm hopeful that the injury isn't serious enough that I can just pick up a temp replacement off the WW. 10 team one year H2H league where the offensive stats are AVG, OBP, SLG, R, HR, RBI and SB.

My current offensive roster is below:

C - Montero
1B - Konerko
2B - Pedroia
SS - Bonifacio
3B - Zimmerman
OF - Bourn
OF - Bruce
OF - Willingham
Util - Ortiz
BN - Rios
DL - Ellsbury

Guys on the WW I am considering are: Reynolds (he was just dropped), Chipper Jones, Aviles, Moustakas.

My first instinct was Reynolds or Aviles. The issue is with Reynolds I'm not sure if my team can absorb the hit to AVG and OBP and since I'm not sure how long Zimm is going to be out for idk if Reynolds will get his act together for the time frame that I would be using him and Aviles seems to be more of the hot hand atm. Thoughts?

Aviles is my pick too. He's a great plug in utility bench bat to hold onto even when Zimmerman comes back.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
