I think my hitting depth is challenged.. could use one more bat on the bench. Also, I'm not sold on Alvarez.
For now, I'm considering picking up Dominick Brown for hitting and also considering picking up Sergio Santos so I can sub him in on off-days as a closer (he's closing for now, right?).
1) Should I pick up either up and if so, for whom?
I know Kyle Lohse is not with a team yet, but I have him on my team b/c of the QS stat -- he seems to do well with getting them.
2) I'm also considering trading for Mark Trumbo, whom I can plug in at 3rd and provide extra OF and 1B depth as well.
What would be a fair trade to get him (and should I do it). The team that has him wants an OF or SP, and is not interested in Choo.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help!
