Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Ok so someone dropped Starlin Castro in my league and I'm wondering whether it's worth making a waiver claim for him. I know he's struggled alot this year but there's just so much upside that I feel like maybe it's worth taking a shot and claiming him, stashing him on my bench to see if he can bounce back. I'm in 1st so its not like I'm fighting for a playoff spot. I know this strategy worked when I claimed Kipnis and Heyward earlier in the season when they were dropped and it got me in 1st (although Heyward is now done). My current SS are Segura and Hardy, so should I drop JJ Hardy and pick up Castro?
Also, should I consider picking up Travis D'Arnaud? The catcher position worried me as I had Evan Gattis and he wasn't getting many at bats but with Heyward now done for the year essentially, Gattis may get more at bats and I can see how he does. He's also OF eligible so with Heyward going on the DL, I could move Gattis to OF and pick up someone like D'Arnaud and see how he does. So should I do this as well? Thanks!
