Which Catcher to Keep? Ellis or Clevenger?

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:56 am

16 team Dynasty League, H2H Points.

Got some guys coming off DL and need to drop one of these catchers... but which one?
AJ Ellis(LAD) or Steve Clevenger(CHI)?

AJ Ellis is having a good year and was just moved up to 2nd in the batting order, but he is a bit old(31) for a breakout player..
while
Steve Clevenger is the starting catcher for the Cubs following injuries to their catchers. Hitting 8th now but is hot right now and could stick if he can keep it up. He is also only 26 and still a rookie. As such, if he gets demoted to the minors by the Cubs, I can put him on my Farm Team and add someone from FA to replace him, thereby, adding another player to my Team's player pool.

Which guy should I drop?

Leave a link and I'll help you too!

I like Ellis. The Cubs' offense is pretty bad, and he's sitting in the 8-hole. If he was higher maybe

Your thinking on Clevenger is spot on and Soto should be included in the upcoming firesale. That being said, Ellis is no doubter here. More use out of him this year, plus there have been some NL catchers who have become better hitters around this age (Yadi is having a late peak, Chooch) If anything, Ellis has the job for probably the next two years at least. Ellis.
