Should I trade my Mike Napoli and a draft pick for J.J. Putz and Carlos Santana? Mike Napoli has pretty good keeper value in our league, he can be kept in the 8th round next year. And with 7 keepers for every team thats pretty good value.
I feel like Carlos Santana would def be an upgrade over Napoli down the stretch, since he has been hot lately and usually has big second halfs. I had faith in Napoli having a rebound second half, but since he has a quad injury that will likely bother him the rest of the season that can def prevent him from having the resurgence. I also need a closer since I lost Santiago Casilla, and I am likely about to lose Houston Street to the DL for a little while as well.
So should I make this trade, will it help me down the stretch? I am in first place by 10 games and I am hoping that when all my guys get healthy I can make a strong championship run. What kind of draft pick should I include in this trade though? I was thinking somewhere between a 9th-12th.
EDIT: I could also trade Pineda to another owner in my league, move A-Rod to the DL then just pick up Lucroy, Rosario, Ellis, or Saltalamachia off the FA .
Should I do this or trade for Santana?
