erstad heads up

just did some major damage to his right hamstring area running home. if you are unlucky enough to have him on your team, look for a replacement. From what I saw it'll be while before he is back.

Thanks for the heads up. I actually start Erstad (14 team league) and valued his runs and sb's.

the angels have quinlan on the current roster, but they might call up kotchman, who, according to the halo announcers 'has hit everywhere he has been'

Kotchman is possibly the best Angels minor leaguer in a very good Angels Minor League system (though they also have what is concidered the best catching prospect in the entire minors now that Mauer is with the Twins).

He's stats in AA: .368AVG 3HR 11doubles 18RBI and a .438OBP

However Stoneman (the Angels GM) is reluctant to move a player quicker than needs be.

Robb Quinlan will replace Erstad for now. He's been a pretty good minor leaguer for the last 3 or 4 years. Batted .300ish in AAA this year so far with 2HR and 15RBI's and 9 doubles (.380 OBP) (just got called up a couple days ago). He had a brief stint with the club last year and batted about .290 (in 90 or so AB's). In 2001 (or was it '02?) he was the MVP of the PCL (AAA) for the Salt Lake Stingers. Has good power but isn't concidered the best with the leather. Don't see him stealing many bases as he's a bigger guy. Dispite all this he's never really seemed to be that great of a prospect for reason's I really don't know.

I'd just lay low on Quinlan for now. He could end up playing pretty good and in that stacked lineup is sure to have a lot of opportunity. However if Kotchman is ever brought up I'd snag him up faster than Bonds swallows pills.
