when the Yankees traded for Vernon Wells, it was expected he would only be filling in for Curtis Granderson while he was injured. once Granderson returns, then what?
it was expected that once Granderson returns, the OF would be Granderson/Gardner/Ichiro.
Wells has been producing, can they really bench him once Granderson comes back?
.300/.366/.544/.911/ 6 HR/ 13 RBI/ 14 R.
I had been wondering if Wells could be the DH, but Travis Hafner is there, and he is producing too. (.318/.438/.667/1.104).
could the Yankees instead bench Ichrio? Ichiro is getting hits, but almost all singles. in his 22 hits, he has 2 doubles and 1 HR.
could one of these players also cover 1st? I would have to doubt that.
I drafted Wells (deep league), and he has been producing. it would suck if he gets sent back to the bench, or even becomes a part time player. if I thought that would happen, I could trade him now. but if I trade him based on thinking/assuming he's going to get reduced playing time, and he ends up continuing to start, then it's going to suck having settled for less just to trade him.
