Middlebrooks for Prado (WHIR)

Standard 5x5 H2H. It's a keeper, I can get Prado for Middlebrooks straight up. Should I take it?

In a keeper I like Middlebrooks especially with the rumors of Youk getting traded. If stick with him.

News: CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports the Red Sox plan to demote Will Middlebrooks to Triple-A Pawtucket once Kevin Youkilis (back) is ready to come off the disabled list. Analysis: This is certainly a somewhat shocking development seeing how Middlebrooks has proven he's ready for a full-time gig in the majors. It just seems as though the Red Sox don't want to move him or Youkilis to the outfield, so the only solution is to demote Middlebrooks so he can play every day in the minors. Youkilis took grounders Monday and will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday, so Middlebrooks' time in the majors might be running out. For now, he's worth starting in Fantasy, but a move to your bench is coming unless the Red Sox change their mind.

I also agree with everyone above. Middlebrooks in a keeper even if hes going back down to Triple A. You don't really need him to start since you have Cabrera. My guess is he'll get called back up at some point this season if they do send him down.

help with mine?

I think you can get more in trade for him in a keeper ( I just got stubbs and Bonafacio for him in one keeper - which is not earth shattering but i eeded big SB influx)

Prados a decent right now help offer but i think his market is higher for you dont take.

Youkilis is old, washed up, and broken. The Red Sox are doing themselves no favors by sending down Middlebrooks and sticking with Youk. Dumb move on their part.

That being said, I still stick with Middlebrooks in a keeper. The guy has shown exactly what he is capable of and how much good he will do for your team when he his in the show for good.
