Will Middlebrooks Fantasy Value

Postby KSig24 » Wed May 02, 2012 3:25 pm

He is about to be called up and Yahoo! has him being added in 5,000+ leagues at this point. He obviously has that coveted 3B eligibility, but what do you see his value being and is he worth an add right now?

Also does he stay up or is this his cup of coffee?

Cup of coffee unless Youk gets seriously hurt and/or continues to play below replacement level. Can't say if he's worth an add without posting your league settings/roster.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Cup of coffee but Youk did get placed on the 15 day DL so he will be up for at least a couple weeks. I think it might be worth the grab if there isnt anyone more proven on the WW still. I would suspect that he will be trading off time with Punto at third but he has great power and a really good eye at the plate. I have youk on my team and im debating picking him up as well.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php

Always depend on who you are dropping. Could surprise me but I don't tend to think rookies are going to make a big difference.

Not sure why people are falling over themselves to pick up this guy. (Or Allen Craig or Gerardo Parra, for that matter.) He's merely an injury fill-in for a couple of weeks.

No path to playing time means very limited value.

Traded him for Bonafacio & Stubbs in a dynasty league (in regards to Value)
