Any good young SS up or about to be?

Postby hot4tx » Wed Jul 25, 2012 8:28 am

Are their any SS's that have recently been called up or may be called up when rosters expand that I need to keep my eye on? Again this is not a keeper, so I'm looking for guys that might have potential fantasy value this year (instead of just looking at total potential for guys like Profar or Machado).

With Desmond hurt and now Aybar, I'm going to be doing the crappy SS hustle for a while and am just trying to make sure I don't miss out if there's someone I should be paying attention to.

Josh Rutledge SS Rockies has been a good pickup for me. Not sure what will happen when Tulo gets back sometime in August. But Rutledge is hitting .341 6 R 5 2B 1 HR 6 RBI 3 SB and a 3.55 FP/PG in 11 games.

Valdespin has SS elig in Yahoo. Looks like he might have a path toward more PT with Duda sent down.

I made a speculative grab of Valdespin in my dynasty league a couple of days ago. Also iirc, Danny Espinosa gained SS eligibility in Yahoo just recently, and might be available in shallower leagues. Just hit a dinger a few minutes ago as well.

Thanks guys. Picked up Valdespin for now. Has to be better than the DNPs I'm getting this week (weekly lineups this year in the league, which sucks BTW). Espinosa and Ruthledge already gone.

Who's Hanley's replacement with the fish and is there any interest there?

Even if he doesn't, he will soon, because with Desmond injured, he's the SS now. With that said, it's likely that he's already owned, because he wasn't a bad choice at 2B.

I was surprised when I looked on Wednesday and his ownership was only 50% in Yahoo - now it's up to a whopping 54% ... :-S
