So whats the deal with this guy? Do you guys think he will actually produce fantasy relevant numbers and help out teams? I'm also wondering when people are adding him to their rosters or if they already have.

From what I've heard he definately is the future of the Tribe behind the dish and is currently tearing up Triple A ball.

I picked him up in a 12 team league. The guy is tearing apart the minors and Redmond/ Marson simply aren't cutting it. He'll be up mid may.

Mid-May would probably make him a super-two. Isn't it possible they wait a few more weeks to delay the arbitration clock?

I am also interested on when people are planning to pick him up...assuming he's still available in your league. Would planning to grab him during mid-May be too early or late?

Already picked him up in my league. With each passing day you risk missing out. I don't there is any particular time to target him that is safe - you never know when someone in your league will decide they've waited long enough and pull the trigger. So, my advice, if you want him, get him now.

Also, I know its a bit of hijack, but when do folks expect Alvarez to get the call up? Anyone stashing him yet? How about Desmond Jennings?

Yeah, as much as I want him though, it's still hard for me to have him take up one of my roster spots for over a month...(I'm also holding Strasburg..)

Yeah I think it would be tough for you to be holding both Stras and Santana

Was hoping to wait until early May to stash him in my cafe league, but you forced my hand ;-)

I can't think of too many other call ups (bats at least) that could have as big of an impact this season. You have guys like Smoak, Jennings, Pedro Alvarez and Stanton that could be mid to late season call ups, but they play deeper positions. Looking for Santana to really make a difference at C this year.
