Drop Eaton for Wheeler (whoops)?

Postby yetiboy » Fri Mar 29, 2013 8:47 am

I'm in a keeper league and currently have Eaton on my team (drafted the night before he was injured). With Santana going down for likely the rest of the season, is it worth it to drop Eaton and pick up Zack Miller in the hopes that he's brought up a little more quickly?

I assume you mean Zack Wheeler. Can't you DL Eaton? You should post your roster for a more complete response.

Gah, yes, I meant Wheeler - not sure where Miller came from.

I'd love to DL Eaton - unfortunately, Arizona hasn't and probably won't bother until the season starts and then will do it retroactively.

Here's my current lineup:

C1 - Rosario
C2 - Lucroy
1B - Fielder
2B - Altuve
3B - Middlebrooks
SS - Rollins
OF - Bautista, Jones, Craig
Util - Crawford, Revere
SP - Lee, Weaver, Fister, Estrada, Iwakuma
RP - Balfour, Cook, Madson
Bench - Moustakas, Eaton, Carter, Flowers, Puig
C1 - Rosario
C2 - Lucroy
1B - Fielder
2B - Altuve
3B - Middlebrooks
SS - Rollins
OF - Bautista, Jones, Craig
Util - Crawford, Revere

Try to wait until Eaton is put on the DL. But, honestly, is there a reason you need a 3rd catcher? Flowers is nothing special.

And I also think Eaton will be back with San Diego before Wheeler is with the Mets. They will wait until Arbitration line passes.

Help with mine (though I think I have my answer):

I've debated dropping Flowers as well. The only reason I'm not dropping him yet is that I'm not entirely sold on Lucroy as my 2nd catcher and for some reason I think Flowers is due for a decent season. Can't really explain it, just a hunch I guess :)

I'm hoping Eaton is back relatively soon, but his injury scares me - there's always the chance it will need Tommy John and he's done long term.

In the end I think you're right though, I'm just going to have to wait until Eaton is put on the DL. I just hope nobody else snatches up Wheeler in the meantime.

Drop flowers. Lucroy is fine. Eaton will be put on dl probably Sunday so I wouldn't worry about it.

Wait until Eaton is put on the DL.

Even though Santana is done, I don't see them bringing Wheeler up any earlier than they were planning. They want to keep his clock from starting and know they arent competing this year anyway.
