They gave him a whole 23 scattered at-bats in his previous stint. There's only so much you can do with that "opportunity". At the time Aaron "fuzzy vision" Guiel and Gonzo were still active along with Beltran and Stairs. There wasn't much room for him.

Now Beltran is gone, Gonzo is disabled, and Guiel is disabled. Open pastures now for DeJesus.

DeJesus should be worth a look in deep mixed and AL leagues.

DeJesus is overhyped. Leave him alone, both keeper and non-keeper.

I just don't agree with thehat's advice to avoid him in all leagues.

Everday position players don't spend much time as free agents in deep mixed and AL/NL only leagues. You'd be surprised how many players are involved in platoons or "time-sharing" positions.

I'm in a deep, AL only keeper league and he's been owned all season.

I just picked him up and put him on my bench in another league which is a 20 team, 4 OF, mixed league.

You should leave him alone in the standard, shallow, mixed leagues which most people play, anyhow.

I picked DeJesus up, but now Andruw Jones has become available. Who would you rather have the rest of the way?
