I think Espinosa is one of the most underrated fantasy players out there. Getting steals and power from a middle infielder who was available near the end of the draft or on waivers in most leagues is worth the hit in mediocre rate stats.

Agreed. I’d gone back and forth on Espinosa a few times earlier in the year, eventually dropping him and settling on Aaron Hill instead. Either way, I was surprised that Espinosa was generally ignored, as he was producing plenty well enough to be rostered… in my league, he’s produced equal value to Plouffe for the season (points league, easy to measure past value, both have produced 208.5 pts).

Pick up Aybar, Alcides Escobar, or Espinosa as injury replacement for Desmond? League is 10 team redraft mixed league. Thanks for any replies.

I’d go with Alcides Escobar. He will probably hit for average and contribute decent steals and counting stats going forward (though essentially no power).

Depends on scoring format, and need, but I think Espinosa has the highest ceiling. ROS, Escobar or Espinosa depending on need (Espinosa if power is more important, Escobar if average is).

and so the injury bug hits, and hits hard… it started with Stanton, then Lowrie, now Desmond, picked up Doumit, Espinosa and Salvador Perez (for a flailing Santana) and i’m still humming along. Can’t thank the writers on this site enough.
