Aoki is nothing special. Gordon is solid, but J-Up has way more upside and is hitting better (showing a better approach recently instead of trying to take that extra bat waggle and swing for the fences 75% of his swings). he's really getting on a hot streak if you ask me. However the problem here is Masterson. He's nothing special and pitched over his head. This trade swings on that free spot you'd add, what would you do with it? You are already light in speed: Is there a Leonys Martin, Rajai Davis (starter Melsucky on DL), etc available that you could grab to regain some speed you deal away here?

Gregor Blanco, Dyson, and Eric Young Jr are a few guys who fit that mold, but I would have a hard time playing them
over McCutchen, Upton (if I made the deal), Heyward, Puig, and De Aza each week.

I could also aim for CJ Wilson over Masterson, but I liked the Ks Masterson would provide.

That's a really tough decision, but I give the slight edge to Masterson.


CJ Wilson has more potential for the ROS but he carries more risk. Masterson is the safer choice.
