Hermidia is an extra body thrown in at this juncture. Cuddyer could do the trick for you in RF, and you would instantly upgrade your RP situation with Putz's shoulder concerns.

I personally would pull the trigger on this. And Hermidia might come back to put up decent stats.

As a suggestion, I think you need an upgrade at 2b and might be able to get some value for Laroche by trading one of them with Adam Laroche for an upgrade at second....you won't get a premiere 2b, but probably could get an upgrade over Lugo or Durham.

help with mine?

Hermida is junk--belongs on the waiver wire.

I wouldn't do that deal.

The question comes down to do you feel confident enough with Putz' injury concerns and the likelihood that Wickman will not lose his job?

Mariano is in a class by himself and you would arguably have a triple threat tandem in the RP department.

The question is, is Abreu for Rivera worth it? As previous poster said, Hermidia is WW material, and he is correct on that notion.

If I could get Jacque Jones instead, would that make a difference? I still need to drop someone too. At the moment I'm leaning towards Kerry Wood. Thoughts?
