He was a half-year wonder and now has no place to play. I cant see how he will have any value

I wouldn't tocuh. I agree that he is a one-year wonder, but beyond that I don't see how he will get significant ABs this year absent a few major injuries to Mora or the myriad 1B/OF/DH guys the Orioles have stacked up.

I had him when he was on his tear and it was never easy to guess when he'd be in the lineup or not, which will only be worse this year. I like him as a player but not for fantasy, barring injury or trade to a team that needs OF help...like the CUBS!! argh!!

Actually, his minor league record shows he'd be a decent major league player, if only he'd be givena chance. However, it looks like the O'd have decided to use him in the supersub role. He'll probably get 400+ ABs, but it will be difficult to predict when and where he'l play each day.
