I just added him in my 10 team AL only league to replace ass-drool Cabrera. I like his upside and his chances to hold off either Izturiz or Kendrick when Kendrick comes back. Look for him to play 4-5 times per week once Kendrick is back
He's a better hitter than his career .252 BA suggests. He had a couple opportunities to run last night but didn't which makes me think he might not be a great source of steals even though he's got some speed.

Depends on league settings and format. In my 20 team league I would consider starting him at 2B and SS (it's a mess). I think he can still get 25-30 SB's, but the one thing that concerns me is his very poor MiLB SB success rate (about 60%). that might limit how much running he does.
Izturis is hitting .140 right now, so if Aybar continues to hit well I could see him supplanting Izturis at SS once Kendrick returns. For me he's a great add as I have Kendrick so while Kendrick is out I can plug in Aybar. And when Kendrick gets hurt again a few weeks after coming off the DL I'll have Aybar all ready to go.
hes still hitting over .300 so he has to start over izturis even when kendrick returns. wood's promotion is a little more concerning though...what do you guys think he'll do going forward? i've been intrigued by him lately because of the dual eligibility as a possible bench candidate.
