My guess is no, because he hasn't been cleared for a visa or whatever yet, and the programmers are probably already working on adding players to the database now. If he doesn't get signed soon, he probably won't be available this year but on the bright side he probably won't play in the majors this year so will probably be fresh for 2016 drafts.

No, seems like a high price to pay for Altuve who derives a lot of his value from avg and sb, both of which may decrease slightly this year and in years forward.

I"m ok with keepin Bogaerts, give him a mulligan on last year. Myers moving to San Diego, is he really top 120? I don't know...the rest are fine. Of those below, the only considerations are Syndergaard, Gausman, Walker and Alcantara. Gausman and walker i'd keep, and that leaves alcantara. Nice 20/20 upside, could he produce like brian dozier? I'd probably keep those three and throw myers back, leaving 12 keepers.

ARe you top 3 in competition projected? If so, keep him on an overpay. If not, either trade or cut. $67 is way more than he will go for at auction IMO.

Fans have him down for 17/27 and .280. Seems optomistic to me but i'd think about taking him around 80-90, maybe later depending on where mocks have him going.

rotowire is a good start, zips is good too. then put in ADP next to them and youre good to go for a draft. I use ADP in case I like a player, like Dickerson, but if he's ranked 100 at Zips but going 80 ADP I have to judge how early am I willing to go?

It's a fair deal, but bundy is a real wild card. If you have minors rosters, any chance he might throw in someone else like Hunter Harvey, or Almora, etc? I do like Richards over Iwakuma (better K ratio, 7yrs younger) and Polanco had a bad year BABIP basis, you gotta like an 18% K rate his first taste of majors so I think he can hit .285 with some power/speed whereas Springer is more .250 more power. Bundy...man, any reports on that guy?

Kemp. I know he's injured a lot, but c'mon do you really have faith in phil hughes? Phil Hughes?? Ok pitcher, but Steamer is projecting him for a 3.89 xfip. Take the Bat, however long it lasts...

I like Bryant, alot. but, Donaldson is already a top 3b so I'd take him. What if Bryant has a Chris Davis type career? He better get those K's in order....of course, he could always end up like Stanton who K's alot but someone still manages to put up a decent avg.

I would do this, I think Castillo and Souza could be potential keepers for you next year. Hope you can find someone better than hunter as your 12th keeper though!

I loved bogaerts before last season, but no way on this deal. I am dialing way back on my expectations for him, and phillips is just about washed up. serviceable but nowhere near the upside of kipnis
