I'd keep Beachy and put him on the DL and pick up another FA after the draft. Beachy will be of good value next year and beyond.

please help

I still think Ortiz could be useful this season, but the Beachy line of thinking has merit. I'm not sure where each guy would go otherwise.

To be honest, I kind of like Hunter this season, especially at the 16th round. Though he's not wedged between Trout and Pujols anymore, he is batting in front of Miggy this year and I've seem him bouncing around between 101 (at Mock Draft Central) to around 130. From a value perspective, he might work out nicely, especially if you're in a 10-14 team league.

Thanks for helping on mine.

I'd go with Ortiz. I believe that getting him in the 7th round represents value.

I would just go with Beachy if you can continue to keep him late for a few years.
If this is a H2H league he should provide a nice boost for the stretch run + playoffs, and he is much more likely to return surplus value over the next few years than Ortiz.

I personally like Hunter more than Beachy or Ortiz this season. I feel like you could always redraft those guys. So with how your draft works, if you dont keep Ortiz at 9 does that mean you still get your 9th round pick?

Beachy, but like the guys have said I don't love either option all that much.

Ortiz. I think Ortiz is the better pick for this year. If you are not concerned about Ortiz's value to you this year, keep Beachy.

I really like Beachy but even when he comes back this year I don't think he will contribute much at all. It not be until 2014 all star break that Beachy is truly back.

Thanks for helping me. Ortiz will most definitely help you this season more, where Beachy is a longer term pick. Do you see yourself keeping Beachy next year if he gets somehow back in form?
