Should I drop Harvey in a redraft league or wait for confirmation?
Guys like Nola (on waivers), Jaime Garcia, R.Iglesias, d'Arnaud are available.
Matt Harvey has been diagnosed with "symptoms consistent with thoracic outlet syndrome" and is considering undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery.
Harvey flew out to St. Louis on Thursday to meet with Dr. Robert Thompson, the nation's leading specialist in TOS. And the news obviously wasn't good. If the right-hander does go under the knife, he might not be ready to pitch again until mid-2017. Other starting pitchers have failed to return from that surgery, or had their skills greatly diminished. It's absolutely terrible news.

good moves, I don't think you'd be able to do this in most leagues... Seems like fairly lopsided trades that worked in your favor.

Thanks, I've been holding Reed for so long it's hard for me to drop him, but agree he might be a BA drain once he's called up...
Agree on Schoop.
Need to drop someone with Forsythe coming back soon.
Who do I drop from:
My other OF (Stanton, Ozuna, Mazara, Valencia

I think I go Price here, but would definitely change based on your team needs. Cain should bounce back from this rough start and I'd like to think that Price will have more luck moving forward.

I was a big K.Wong fan and had him last year before trading him out of frustration (inconsistency) and drafted him again this year (while stashing D.Travis). I dropped him 2 weeks ago and haven't looked back. Neither should you. He's already losing a lot of PT to Gyorko, and once Peralta comes back he will really struggle to find time over Diaz & Gyorko.

I'd hold out for a better headliner. I like Garcia but he's injury prone. The other two have never pitched a full season.

I'd ride it out with him on your bench unless you're desperate for the roster spot.
The guy is a proven hitter, and will rebound as the temperature rises in Arlington.
