Since Koji Uehara is now closer how will he be fantasy wise going forward? Worth picking up?

Yeah, worth picking up, though it’s anyone’s guess how that situation will play out over the remainder of the season. Tazawa might see some chances too. Also note that Uehara has been injury-prone.

Being offered Sabathia n Dickey for Puig…keeper league…thoughts?

MPZ,

Honestly, in a keeper league I think I’d pass on that. Dickey has been completely unreliable and as great as Sabathia is, he’s showing signs of decline while Puig has superstar potential.

Zach

The offer changed to Kemp and CC. Change anything?

As long as Kemp’s price isn’t through the roof, yeah, I’d do that.

Thanks for everything one last question… Is Miguel Gonzalez of the Orioles for real? 5-2 3.75 ERA and been pitching well thoughts?

I’m a believer in Gonzalez. Still probably a PoD guy for now but he definitely has grad potential.

Zach

What are your ideas on Jon Lester. Should I drop him for the available Stults, Leake, Marquis, De la Rosa, or Nolasco

I’m definitely concerned about Lester but I wouldn’t be ready to drop him. That said, I’d try to find a way to pick up Leake regardless.

Zach

Carlos Santana was just dropped in my league I only have 1 catcher (Rosario) should I pick him up and drop Melky?

I don’t know if Melky is your best drop option, but if it is, sure go ahead. Grab Santana immediately.

Zach

Well is it time to drop Middlebrooks sohe doesnt use up my last active roster spot? Who do you prefer…..Lyles or Holland?

Hey Zach,
Wandy is available in both of my leagues. #1 (Greinke, Ryu, Masterson, Shelby Miller, Leake, and Garza) and #2(Gio, Zimmerman, Ryu, Sale, Garza, and Holland). My belief is that I have enough starting pitching as #1 is a 12-team mixed league and #2 is a 10-team league. Would you make a move to add Wandy or stand pat? Just checking.
Rich D.

Rich,

I’m a Wandy fan but I think you’re fine in both of those leagues. Would I rather have Wandy than Leake ROS? Probably. But no need to tinker with your roster. The difference is minimal and Leake is on a roll, though I won’t be starting him @TEX this week!

Zach

Agreed….he’s already on the bench. Ha! Thanks for your help.
