It was an NL-only league.

I figured since I started Merrifield's outlook thread, I may as well start his partner-in-crime's thread, too. Both were very effective thieves in 2018, especially late in the season.    Und

Currently higher on the player rater than Trea has EVER been.

At this point, he's a pretty safe drop in redraft roto imo. H2H you may want to hold out hope a little longer.

You mean there’s no reason for your post. Two posts ahead of mine a guy mentioned “stashing” him in roto. My response is that there are probably better stashed in roto, IL or not. 

Boy, I hope nobody took this advice.

Maybe. But it’s kinda dumb to assume he’ll beat 2+ months of streaming SBs this long before it even comes close to happening. 

Pretty dumb to advise cutting him on any team that has DL slots and imply that literally any other factor was relevant, as I told you, repeatedly.

Nah. Just your assumption is dumb. It’s still pretty unclear whether 2+ months of streaming will result in more, less, or about the same amount of steals.

Your point about IL is kinda silly. Obviously you’re not going to drop someone and leave an IL slot empty. But guys like Scherzer, Cruz, and others who were out a shorter time and are more valuable we’re also injured during that stretch.

I'm not a doctor and don't have any real knowledge of his injury past what I've read.  I've lost the top spot in SBs in a roto league since he's been out so I'd love to see him back.

However, I can't comprehend why KC would feel it necessary to bring him back at all this year.  Have him take his time with it, there is literally nothing to play for.  Shoulder injuries are tricky and have a propensity for re-injury more so than most other types of injuries.  It's difficult to imagine a subluxation being fully healed with such a short rehab period.  

I understand it's his glove side shoulder, but at SS there's a lot of quick twitch and diving plays he'll need to make.  He's also a switch hitter... it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.  Hope I'm proven wrong and I'll continue to stash him in case he's back this season, but I have little expectation that he will be.


Sigh... predictable.
