I think he'll give you a solid average, maybe 10 homers, decent runs and not much else. Weak counting stat guy, not a fan...

Does it really matter? Madden changes his lineups on a daily basis

Considering adding this guy as I'm running out there with Kozma everyday who is pretty decent at getting on base. What kind of line do you guys project from Yunel this year? He's back from an injury and starting to make some good contact

I might try him out since I have Castro (dead weight) and Scutaro (hit might go on DL). Hope he really gets "en fuego". He's batting .362 last two weeks.
