Any ideas on what to expect from him? Seems likely to play everyday as an OF/DH.

What should we expect?

His average has always been good, Cuba and the minors. I added him in a 5 OF league just to see if he can catch some lightning in a bottle, but if he can provide average, runs and a modest amount of HR/RBI which seems possible then he can be roster worthy. He doesnt strike out a ton and walks a decent amount which should bode well.

he gets put on waivers after he plays his first game I believe?

Either way, once he's added he'll be on waivers so no rush

Sounds like he will be playing DH for the most part. So Reimold, Dickerson, whoever their DH at the moment is.
