I think he’s my best player already

He's pretty much one or two hopped every throw to the cutoff man so far. They said coming into the season he was going to have to throw to the cutoff man for every throw because he didn't have the str

Thank you very much! I hope you're right! 🙂

again... don't expect him to contribute right away.  He'll likely be rusty and will probably take time for that power to build up.  If you have him, he should be a project, not the savior of your team.

He doesn't need to be a savior, however, he needs to be a contributor! 😂

I'd temper the steal expectations. No longer sliding head first, so might be a deterrent 

Will he use outstretched arms at least? Seems safer than leading with the face.

Just an educated guess, but I'd think no. Assuming the majority of those slides would be to the outside of the bag, that means the left arm which is the shoulder he had operated on

Excited to get this guy off my IL. I think the power numbers will be low until post all star break, but the steals will be there. 

Post asb? That long you think?  Is this what conforto went through?  He had a period last year where he was crushing the ball.  I think it DID take about 2 months for him to get to that level.

Yeah with shoulder injuries it definitely takes a little bit to get that power back. I was actually thinking exactly about Conforto’s situation last year when posting that.

Anyone who added him still a believer? I know long lay off and only been back a week. Has anyone watched him this week, how has he looked.

 

He's still catching up. He wasn't hitting well in his rehab assignments either, feels like he may have been rushed back simply bc the Bucs couldn't score for such a long stretch. 

 

IMO, bench stash for now if you can afford the roster spot.

He's talented, but irritating to own because he's more fragile than most players. Right now the team has him not playing three consecutive games from him coming off shoulder surgery, which makes sense but it seems like just when he gets going, he gets injured again. That's been my experience as a GP owner anyways .... love the talent, but in daily leagues he's the opposite of a "set it and forget it" player.

What do we do about young Gregory? I'm sure we can all agree he's been a blackhole since he's been back.

No homers and no steals - and i'm not sure how much he'll be stealing in the majors with only being able to slide feet first due to his shoulder. 

Thoughts?

Just got dropped in my main league, gonna try to watch a few Pirate games this week and see what the eyes say...
