I would keep one of those guys over Granderson. Probably lean towards Beltran or Konerko. It is close though. Also could depend no how many keepers. If you have a lot of keepers, I would be more inclined to keep Granderson.

I agree with Mauddib.

Beltran if you need an OF, Konerko if you need an IF.

I've never been a Granderson fan. Sure, he's hit a ton of HR, but he's a BA sinkhole and strikes out like Mark Reynolds. With a serious arm injury this year, I think his power starts waning. If he hits 25HR this year, I'd be surprised. His K% has gone up each of the last three years, likely because he's going after the long ball all the time. I don't see that changing after he gets off the DL and it will probably increase if he starts pressing to make up for lost time.

Konerko is great for BA, RBI, and strikes out 50% less that Grandy. He's just old. Similarly, Beltran is getting old as well, but he'll steal you some bases and hit for above average power in a great lineup. I don't see him hitting 30+ HR this year, but I didn't see him doing that last year, and he did it so there's that.
