He's definitely NOT worth a roster spot right now if he doesn't get placed on the DL. The player would have to be a pure stud to warrant taking up a usable roster spot in most leagues. However, if he gets placed on the DL, what do you have to lose?

I am not sure about his injury, he seems to have come back a lot sooner than projected, so maybe he really is feeling fine.

Seriously the most shallow postion any Fantasy is 2B. Aaron Boone is eligible at 2B and 3B and last year he was also eligible at SS in many leagues making him very valuable.

Why else is Aaron valuable, well how many middle infielders in a full season can put up

80 Runs
25 HR
80 RBI
25 SB
260 AVG

Aaron Boone while he WILL FOREVER be remebered for one thing and one thing only and that is the walk off HR in game 7 in 2003. Aaron Boone is actually a valuable fantasy player, and fast come back reminds me of Nevin last season who came back and was very productive. If you need help at 2B or 3B Aaron Boone is a nice pickup for the stretch run.

Definately a great call LTOM.... ;-D

I am going to grab him as quick as I can in an AL only league...but I am going to pass on him in mixed leagues for a little bit... :-)
