    Default Scott Kingery... worth the hype?

    Hey gang, just wondering if you think Kingery is the next big thing or if his tires are over inflated ATM?

    I have the number 1 waiver priority and I can add him by dropping one of Jon Gray, Michael Fulmer or Britton (who I plan to stash in my IR as soon as the season starts).

    Should I take a step back and reconsider or is this a gift from the baseball Gods, especially since he can become my new 3-year franchise keeper at the end of the season?!

    I mean I dunno about the next big thing....but he's definitely going to have some value this year. Supposedly he's going to be in quite the utility role to start the year so that's pretty valuable.

    Super utility, all IF positions and OF were mentioned as possibilities today. I’d take him as your first bench or first MI position.

    Right now, he's all hype, but from everything I've read about him he's full of potential.

    I just finished up my prospect draft in my keeper baseball league and while Kingery went early, there were a lot of other prospects who went in front of him. Without knowing who else is available, it's hard to know if he's worth snagging or not.

    From what I've read about him, there really isn't a set position for him which can be good, but also bad. Sure it gives him multiposition eligibility but there's also no guarantee he's going to play anywhere either.

    I ended up using my waiver priority on him. 6 other managers had put bids so I’m glad I landed him.

    We will see what he can do shortly

    Thanks for the feedback gents!

    Any chance you can flip him now to someone who is willing to buy on the upside?

    Im not surprised. Thats the downfall for being super versatile compared to being pegged to play one position. It was also mentioned durung the spring that they really didn't have a hole for him just yet but they want to get him into the games somehow.

    Their mistake was signing Santana with Hoskins n Franco on roster. Franco ain’t winning the Gold glove down at 3B ever, should’ve started the switch to 1B in the offseason.
