I just grabbed McCann off waivers, but since my league has no bench and only 2 DL slots, I need to figure out which injured player should be on my active roster for the time being.
We're a standard roto league (HR, RBI, R, SB, AVG)
I could drop Chris Carter, put Lawrie into the CI slot and leave McCann on the DL.
Or, I could drop one of Buck or Jaso and plug McCann into the C slot, leaving Lawrie on the DL.
I guess my question is:
Lawrie penciled to come back in 2 weeks. McCann in about a month. Will I get more production out of Buck or Jaso over the next month or Carter over the next 2 weeks? And if the recommendation is to drop a C, which one?
C - John Buck
C - John Jaso
1B - Justin Morneau
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Jedd Gyorko
SS - Jose Reyes
MI - Jed Lowrie
CI - Chris Carter
OF - Matt Kemp
OF - BJ Upton
OF - Melky Cabrera
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Angel Pagan
Util - Dexter Fowler
DL - David Ortiz, Brett Lawrie
BN - Brian McCann --- this is an illegal roster so I need to drop someone
I would keep McCann on your roster and drop Jaso. Carter will give you power, but Buck will probably have the better overall numbers.
In short, go with McCann and Buck.
Does anyone else comment around here? I should just email you directly...
thanks for your help. I have until midnight to make a decision.
Not sure which way to go yet.
I've gotta agree with Mac here and say drop jaso and just plug McCann into your extra C slot.
We're not concerned that Carter has started the year 0 for 9 with 6 Ks?
I wouldn't be too concerned about that yet. I would think that most of his team has probably started 0-9 with 6Ks with the pitching they have seen!
Ha, good point! Ogando has 10 Ks through 6 IP today.
Yu had 14 and Harrison had 9 so they're all off to a rough start facing some great young arms!
One quick question - is Buck still a better option than Castillo in Chicago?
To be totally honest I think all 3 are kinda in the category of "not very good" fantasy options... Looking at ranks and projections castillo is the best of the 3 but you could almost flip a coin... Just hope for a good, speedy recovery from mccan!
