Fantasy question- in an NL only keeper league do I stick with nick senzel or drop him and grab peter alonzo or McMahon? It seems like senzel will start in the minors and the other two may break camp w the big league teams.
If it’s a keeper league then stick with the better prospect.
Senzel and Alonzo will start the season in AAA so the team gains another year of control. McMahon should open with the MLB team.
Go with Senzel and have a bench player fill in for the first couple weeks. Then you have the better player for when the season really counts, including fantasy playoffs unless its rotisserie. You also might get the chance at extra position eligibility for flexibility depending on other guys getting injured and having Senzel cover them on the infield. I say all of that with this caveat, if power is weighed heavier and is a much bigger contributor to points, consider Pete.
McMahon is going to open with the MLB team but isn’t he going to platoon with Hampson?
I like Senzel. He probably gets call after waiting the couple weeks required for the additional year of control. At that point you have a great player. He was my last pick. 8 team mixed head to head.
