Lawrie has also been out. I don't know the status of Lawries return, but he last I knew is also injured. But if he's coming back then sure. U moving crawford for a 3B I think makes sense. Crawford is on ur bench and u will need a 3B fill in. I think seager, gyorko, m. Carpenter, Moustakas, could be cheapish buys to fill in. Crawford is just sitting on ur bench, isn't a lock of returning to his old healthy productive self. Just know this thins u at ur options for OF, but OF is easier than other positions to fill in, find in FA and add depth too. I'd move Crawford for a 3B, lawrie, is a good 1 for 1 if u can make it happen, last I knew, lawrie was hurt, if he's returning then good

I like Crawford this yr but with the situation you appear to be in, I think it makes sense. Crawford is on you bench thus not helping you. One problem, Lawrie is not expected back until later this month. What does that mean, I'm just not sure. Regardless, I think I would do the deal, hope for the best with A Ram and then have CI depth which someone WILL need at some point in the season.

I have to agree with the others. Crawford is just sitting on your bench, and it is hard to say what we'll get from him. I'd say do it.

Help on mine?

I would actually move Hosmer and see if you can get a better 3b. Any UT would fill the same bench role (backup at 1b and UT) as Hosmer, since you have a 1b at UT.

No one wants Hosmer. Reynolds is available on the WW.

ARam has only a knee sprain. Does this change things?

I think I'd just stay put honestly and just grab Reynolds for the short term fix.
I mean you don't have a ton of OF depth and when Crawford gets it going you have trade bait.
