I didn't really hear about Wooten until this year. Evidently he is the Angel's best pure hitter. In 220 at bats last season he hit .312 with 8 or so homers. He's returning now very soon and he qualifies as catcher, 1b, and the good part is he'll be a pure DH I'm guessing when he gets back to keep him free from injury. Is he worth a gamble?

In my league he's at league minimum value and if he comes back on a storm I'll earn good cap points for already having him on my roster. He'll take the place of Scott Hatteberg at 1st.

What do you guys think? ;-D OR :-t

I was high on Wooten as a sleeper before the season (and before his injury). He certainly has talent, although I don't think I'd call him the Angels' best hitter just yet. The only question is whether he'll be rusty after spending half the season on the dl, but, at minimum price, he's as good a gamble as any player you'll find, especially given the catcher qualification. Plus, even if he fizzles, you might gain some salary room if more owners have the same idea. It's not ebtirely without risk, of course, but I'd say: ;-D

He went 2 for 3 with a homerun his first game back. He deosn't seem too rusty! I'll still keep an eye on him though. }:-)
