Though it is a small sample, If he stays at that .276 avg, I think he has a chance to have a breakout year. Despite his problems in florida, his minor league numbers suggest high ceiling. How long do you wait to pick him up?
Depends on your team and your bench. You ALWAYS try to pick up players who are playing well, but if they are more likely to be flashes in the pan then you can't just go dropping legit players, or more legit players for them. If you have deep benches then he should already be on your team. If you have a FA type of guy on your bench already then he should already be on your team. Just depends...any hot player is worthy of being picked up, just depends on who you will be dropping to pick him up.
This is why having a bench spot devoted to "hot" players isn't a bad idea because there are always hot players you can plug in for a week or three at a time.
