(NOTE: THIS POST WAS RELEASED EARLY THIS WEEK ON OUR PATREON. IT’S $10/MONTH OR $13/MONTH WITH AN EXTRA WEEKLY PODCAST.)

I remove my Christian Door glasses, an offshoot of Christian Dior I was told, to study the side of the colonic box. Reading the instructions, “Take two of these pills, drink sixteen cups of coffee, place yourself on top of your toilet, flush every three minutes until you no longer hear the sound of Niagara Falls.” Hmm, interesting, I ponder thoughtfully, as I’m known to do. Then I say to the pharmacist, “What if instead of streaming out my butt, I’m streaming out of my outfield?” He points towards waivers, where there’s a Kelenic. Excellent, a holistic treatment! My hippie mother will be happy to hear it! Jarred Kelenic is up…Dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot…Now? Okay, was trying to stall, but he’s coming up any day now. You need to grab him in all leagues. I see he’s at 48% rostered, and he should be at a hun’dit. He could be a top 20 outfielder this year. We’re talking a guy who could be 24/17/.280 in five months. Otherwise known as what you want from Randy Arozarena. Side note: What’s funny is I wrote the preceding, then went to look at what I wrote back in November, and here’s November Grey, “What if I were to tell you Jarred Kelenic could be next year’s Randy Arozarena? I’m kidding, it’s just funny to overhype some guy by comparing him to a guy with, like, twelve games played. But, seriously, would Randy Arozarena 2021 interest you? Still joking. Kelenic has bigger power than Randy. Blasphemy! But it’s true.” And that’s me quoting me! Get this Kelenic in your system and stop streaming. Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Wilson Ramos – Was looking at Jed Lowrie and Wilson Ramos in this week’s Buy column, and thinking about how much I wish the Mets would trade Pete Alonso anywhere. The Mets’ womb is polluted like they’re Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. “Say hello to my little friend!” Scarface pulls out his wallet and shows a Topps card of Altuve. “Hey, Scarface, that’s not how you keep a mint card, man.”

Travis Shaw – Imagine this is 2019 when I said Travis Shaw would win the MVP…*wavy lines* Hey, what’s up, I’m Grey and it’s 2019! Catchers are so cool, I wish I could wear a mask every day…*wavy lines* Wow, 2019 Grey was very dumb.

Jed Lowrie – “How much terrible luck does automatically befall every Mets player?” That’s a docent at the Natural History of Jed Lowrie Museum.

Jazz Chisholm – For our next song, we will be playing, “*makes fart noises with hand under armpit* I hope you enjoy.” That’s your dad’s jazz. Chisholm is our Jazz!

Colin Moran – Confession alert! I’ve liked Colin Moran for a few years. Not like, “Jumping out at a red light to hug” like, but liked more than I prolly should’ve. So far this year, he’s showing 2020 might’ve had one good thing, Moran’s emergence as a productive hitter.

Renato Nunez – I guarantee you the best is yet to come for Renato. See, he only has a couple of homers now, so for the best to be ‘yet to come’ he only needs to hit like four more homers the rest of the way. He could even be better than the best is yet to come. That makes sense, right?

Zach McKinstry – Prospect Itch went over McKinstry the other day, saying, “(He) has been hitting well for a long time, including a torrid stretch in AAA with the 2019 balls when he slashed .382/.421/.753 and hit seven home runs in 26 games. That’s the last time he was an everyday player. He’s a good example of betting on the talent and hoping the playing time materializes, now who can I pay to beat up Grey?” What?! The problem I have with McKinstry is Cody will return shortly, so be careful about how good the player is you’re dropping for Zach-Mc.

Luis Urias – More of a monocle than a Buy, but there’s no Monocle column. *thinks for a half hour* Yet.

Phillip Evans – Is it possible to get everyone to use one or two L’s with Phillip and just stick with that? Also, we can’t have Zack ending in C, Ch, or K. Y’all gotta choose. Any hoo! Because I wanted to watch Padres pitchers, I’ve been watching a lot of Pirates, and Evans has been on everything. His previous year numbers say the power will tail off but he should be good for contact, i.e., might hit .280+.

Tim Locastro – You don’t need steals? Damn, I wish I was living right like you. What’s your secret? And don’t try to sell me on any of your multi-level marketing products.

Adolis Garcia – Here’s what I said this morning, “I was impressed with his power (on his homer), but wasn’t sure about him, so went to look at his minor league numbers and my eyes did a little bulge out of their sockets. In his (and everyone’s) last year of Triple-A in 2019, he went 32/14/.253. Obviously, there’s an issue with contact, and he projects around a 35% strikeout rate, but power/speed guy in a lineup that needs anything plays. Might have to change my team names to Much Adolis About a Dolis.” And that’s me quoting me!

Rafael Dolis – Small note about people who play in FAAB leagues. I talked about this on the podcast this week, but if you don’t listen, maybe you read. Don’t spend a ton on the “closer of the week” with FAAB. No matter how appealing guys appear week to week, and Dolis or Trivino appear appealing. There will be new closers next week who also appear appealing. This blurb was brought to you by the misheard Xmas lyrics, Ten Lords a pear a peeling…

Kendall Graveman – Fun fact! Kendall Graveman is what I named my Ken doll when it told me it wanted to quit school and work at a cemetery. Also, Graveman is the M’s closer. Hard to say a hundred-percent-ly, if it stays that way. Carry on, carrier!

Emmanuel Clase – The Indians’ closer is Clase, which is pronounced like glacé, which is French for ice cream, and saying that makes you sound classy, which is also his designation — Clase, C.

Yoan Lopez – Could be the Diamondbacks’ closer or not. Have no idea, but it’s much worse that the Diamondbacks have no idea who their closer is, so put that in your pipe and smoke it and don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

Lou Trivino – The Oaktown Oaklanders will have a lot of saves this year, so if Trivino can lock down the job, he could have huge value. Trivino’s biggest handicap is Diekman and the back nine. Yes, Grey has no idea anything about golf and can’t even fake it.

Logan Gilbert – This is not a Streamonator call. This a “Logan Gilbert might be called up any moment” call. Not sure when it happens, but when it does, his calling-upping will be one of those where he’s an add in all leagues. He is easily as good as, say, Huascar Ynoa.

Alex Cobb – This is a chance to get in on the ground floor if Cobb is actually breaking out but it’s also a Streamonator call, like the call it makes to its favorite OnlyFans.

Danny Duffy – This is also a Streamonator call. “Hello, OnlyFans? Do you have any ceiling fans that only wave hello instead of goodbye?”

SELL

Byron Buxton – Listen haters will hate. We know that from my bumper sticker; my t-shirt; the patch on my jeans that runs from my ankle to my ass; the sign on my front lawn. “Haters gonna hate” is my birthstone. I don’t want to hate, but that’s what haters do! Won’t even make this about how Buxton is struggling with a hamstring injury, and, even if wrapped in bubble wrap, he never stays healthy. Will keep it focused on his skills. His best season is 16/29/.253 in 140 games, but he might be a different player now. Not sure if he has that speed, and likely more power. How’sever his Launch Angle is way down, fly balls are down, much more of a 17% or lower HR/FB%, but is at 45%. Did he really become a 40/.360 hitter? Don’t make me hurt myself with an eye roll. If you can find someone who believes Buxton became a new player, then I’d go to the Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer and propose away. I wouldn’t sell him for a ticket to watch Keith Raniere play volleyball.

    Hi grey!
    In a 12 team league someone just cut ian happ.
    Drop riley for him?
    Or for Adolis/profar/gurriel/tapia?

    Thanks for everything!

    Hey Grey,

    Drafted Kelenice in the 16th of 25 round draft this year, will be sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the the call-up…Quick question,

    12 team H2H Points League. K’s are minus 1. R/RBI 1 each, HR’s worth 6.

    Soler and Arraez were recently dropped. Who scores more end of season? I know Soler has the guaranteed playing time, but I also think Arraez will be on the field more often that not. Kid doesn’t K much and looks like he’s a .300 hitter all day long. I don’t necessarily need his flexibility as I have E Escobar and J Polanco as back up MI’s…thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Soler

  5. The natural says:

  6. Commish Cauda says:

    16-team, H2H-Points League, (KO=-1)

    Drop Manny Margot for Duvall?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Sure, but apples/oranges

  7. Will says:

    Buxton already missed time in ST with a broken tooth and is out now with the strained hammy. And it’s only halfway through April. Yet he continues to tease with the .469 / 5 / 9 / 1 line (better than some guy named Trout). Why do I fall for this every single season? Aaaaarrrrrggggggghhhhhhh

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, yup

  8. Juan GOATo is my religion says:
    (link)

    Rosario over Canha? Roto 6*6 OPS

    What other rookies do you see making an impact in the short term? Adell? Anyone else?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes, Eddie…Logan Gilbert

  9. Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
    (link)

    Thanks grey!

    1. Would you drop Riley for any of those CI guys (Nunez Shaw lowrie Moran evans)?

    2. Trevino and Stallings seem to be hitting 4/5 lately (lol poor rangers and pirates). Would you drop Tucker for one of those guys?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. Prolly not 2. Kyle Tucker?

    Happy Margarita Friday!
    Taillon looks bad. Reminds me of a Coffin filled with Corbin. Dead…
    Would you hold out to see next start or hit the waiver wire?
    Aloha!

      Grey says:

      Same to you! Prolly wait out a start in deeper leagues

  11. stevie says:
    (link)

    My 2B/3B shituation is a dumpster fire. Jazz and Moran are both available. Drop any of these for either or both? 12-team H2H points
    Isiah Kiner-Falefa
    Cesar Hernandez
    Austin Riley
    Nick Solak

    • stevie says:
      (link)

      Nope, Jazz is gone… But Moran is still out there, and so is Travis Shaw

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Cesar for Jazz

  12. Don't Be a Hader says:

    In a 12-Teamer…are you dropping Tellez or Naylor for Shaw at CI?

      Nah

  13. John Oldrods says:
    (link)

    Always a pleasure to read your work, Grey. Would you drop Hiura, Santander or Kepler for Kelenic? 10-team H2H cat 5×5. Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! Not yet

  14. Prawn Lord says:

    I’ve consistently had multiple Mets on my fantasy team. This year it’s Alonso, Conforto, and Nimmo. I’m starting to think I subconsciously hate myself. I’m also starting to think I should trade Conforto for my own sanity. Keeping up with the Mets takes a toll on your psyche

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Haha, I hear ya

    • John Oldrods says:
      (link)

      I’m a Mets fan, but I’ve never had more than one of them on my team… until I decided to go with four this year.

      • Grey

        Glutton for punishment

  15. Travis Hafner says:
    (link)

    1.) Andrew Vaughn a drop or hold in 10 team 5×5? I’m holding in 12 team.

    2.) Are Kike Hernandez and Eaton holds in 10-12 teams? They’re kinda decent players but feel so meh.

    3.) Is Adolis worth a look in 12 team mixed? Over Kike types?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1/2) Prolly can lose… 3. Sure

  16. jason batteiger says:
    (link)

    k.wright sure has a lot of pitches, and i think he’s figured out it’s just more fun to hit people (esp baez) early in counts, keeps your pitch counts down. he’s probably freaking out the other hitters too somewhat. i’ll take this over long at bat BB’s for sure, which he’s been the king of before.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      He’s definitely just avoiding trouble tho

      • jason batteiger says:
        (link)

        oh yeah and he’s hit guys with 3 different pitches too so far. changeup/sinkers/curve. ah 20 teamer and NL only life when you’re done with m.keller (for now) and/or 16 teamers for today stream over weathers (since vs LAD).

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Seems like a lot of traffic on bases, but I’m only half watching

          • Will says:
            (link)

            Davies put 10 baserunners on in only 4 innings (7 hits, 3 walks). ERA stands at 10.32 right now. He’s not exactly Yu Darvish.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, not exactly

  17. Thundershoe says:
    (link)

    Which trade do you like better?

    Give Giolito, Get Lindor

    Give Giolito and Luzardo, Get Bellinger and Bohm

    Perhaps this boils down to, do you like Lindor or Bellinger better?

    On the other hand, maybe the trade for Cody B and Bohm is a better trade based on overall player value.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Cody/Bohm

    Grey! Love these 2 post days. Mind you, Patreon got this to readers earlier.

    Top 5 players in 5 years, obviously, best estimate? Pitchers don’t count. Just trying to see where my dynasty thoughts line up with yours.

    Thanks as always,

    K here’s a crazy thing. Jerry Dipoto was quoted as saying Kelenic and Rodriguez would have about the same number of MLB ABs this year.

    Source was Jim Bowden on MLB radio. Not sure what to make of that.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      That is a little crazy…Ju-Rod? Really? Ralph says he talked to someone in SEA org and Kelenic and Gilbert are due any day now

      • OaktownSteve says:
        (link)

        Good to hear on Kelenic. Have him stashed in RCL and could use OF help.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          Yeah, hope so

    • pinkman says:

      Jim Bowden is trash. Isnt that the same guy who made up his sources for some articles he wrote for ESPN and got canned there?

      • Grey

        He is trash

      • OaktownSteve says:

        Doesn’t even make sense with Kelenic, Lewis and Haniger there. Most likely garbage info. Sorry everybody.

        • Jolt In Flow says:
          (link)

          Haniger has been injury prone.

          But from everything I’ve read on him, Rodriguez is up in 2022. MAYBE Sept 2021.

          Trammell could put things together in short order and really make that a crowded outfield. Signs are pointing in the right direction for Trammell.

          Jolt

          • OaktownSteve says:
            (link)

            I have not liked what I’ve seen from Trammell. He looks like best case scenario is Manny Margot, but right now not seeing a quality MLB hitter in him.

            • Jolt In Flow says:
              (link)

              I think Seattle’s had zero expectation for him. So for him to do anything, that’s what I’m basing this on. He’s contributed 2 homers and an SB. For a guy who hasn’t played baseball in 2 years and is getting his first round at MLB, I’d still give him a chance. Seattle is taking what they can get.

              Obviously, just my opinion.

      You don’t seem like you need an RP…Tho, Barnes is likely better than Dunning…None of those SPs move the needle, so to speak…I guess Canning is slightly better than Dunning too

    With Marte out for awhile I scooped up Jazz today. I need help with Michael Conforto. He was dropped and I have #1 waiver priority. Would he move my teams needle enough to use up that ammo? His counting numbers should be strong this year as long as he stays healthy.
    My mind is saying do it but my gut says wait until a top line SP gets dropped after some dud starts. Thoughts?

    So if an enterprising feller can only find 1 spot on their roster, would that fella be smarter to gamble on Cobb or Gilbert. And would that same smart feller drop Peterson for either, or would he then be a fart smeller instead of a smart feller?

    Hey Grey, what do you think about this slightly hobbled squad? 12 team, 6×6 H2H

    Hard to tell where I’ll be with SBs, but that looks like a weakness to me. I’m debating my move to pick up Jed over Jazz this morning.

    C – J. McCann
    1B – Abreu
    2B – Lowrie
    3B – E. Escobar

    Roster check – starting off the season slow due to slumps & injuries. 12 team H2H. Scoring is standard 5 batting cats + OPS, Ks, and ABs. Pitching is W, L, K, SV+HLDs, ERA, WHIP, K/9, QS

    C- IKF
    1B- Olson
    2B- India
    3B- Chapman
    SS- Story
    OF- Dylan Moore, Betts, McNeil
    B- Lewis, Yordan
    IL- Bellinger

    SP- Kikuchi, Plesac, Ryu, Means, Paddack
    RP- Montero, Taylor Rogers, Tyler Rogers, Castillo, Rich-Rod, Reyes
    IL- Merryweather

    I’m going to need Lewis to come out en fuego when he is expected to be activated and Yordan hopefully will be back soon as well, but I think whatever happened with the Astros will take the full 10-14 days since we haven’t heard a peep since.

    This is the slowest I’ve come out of the gate through my first 2 matchups in awhile, which is making me antsy but maybe I should be fine. All my guys should come out of their funks and hopefully get healthy soon (except for Belly would is most likely out for another few weeks). Do you think I have the roster right now to drop India for Kelenic? I feel like if I’m going to struggle a bit right now, might as well stash Kelenic with the hope that he can help me turn things around when he’s called up.

    Do you prefer him over Schwarber or Mancini? Thank you!

    Hey Grey!

    1. With the Bellinger hairline fracture news, would you boost up McKinstry in your bidding? In a keeper league, thinking about trying to sneak him for $2 but not sure if I should be more aggressive. Seems like you, Ralph-Jeff(Reff?), and Itch all really like him and were just meh on PT.

    2. What do you think of this FAAB priority below where I’m trying to “replace” Eloy/Ketel losses and Vaughn PT Larussa games?

    Duvall ($7 of 100, no $0 bids)
    Lowrie ($4)
    McKinstry ($2)
    Evans ($2)
    Moran ($1)
    Shaw ($1)

    Locastro ($1)

    Guys like Ynoa (#525) are not rated highly; is this because you assume he’ll have reduced usage as year progresses? I assume even with an innings cap, he’d be rated higher than this.

    Molina is why I never pay for C at the draft.
    Drafted Alfaro. He got hurt, nbd, check waivers, there’s Yadi.

    Dude is raking. Who cares if he’s 137?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, never pay for catcher…see Wilson Ramos too

      • Lucky Dog says:
        (link)

        I flipped a coin between the two. I think Yadi hits for better average, which is what I need. Also I think Ramos is a schmohawk on a hot streak. I’ve had him many times – he’s done this before, just not this early.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Meh, they’re both kinda whatever, but they’re hot now

          • Lucky Dog says:
            (link)

            They’re free, which is all that matters to me. And such a low investment that if they get hurt you can cut bait & more on. If they contribute, great.

            Mize worth holding onto?

              Grey says:

    12 team 5×5 h2h. need to drop 2 of these:
    SP: woodruff, corbin, otani, means, nazi, desclafani (not good next matchup @ PHI), dunning (even worse next matchup @ WSOX), j-mont, s.gray. one of these spots to activate gray, the other to stream from.

    these others in FA: pearson (could stash in not long), framber (same), peterson, houck, brubaker, ross, duffy, junis, marco gonz, walker, wood, sheffield, kikuchi,

      What happened?

        the Blue Jays rearranged their rotation after a PPD earlier – he’s scheduled for the 20th which will be 7 days from his last start

    Jazz hits .471 this week and Donny Ballgame has him batting 7th. I really try not be the “angry old man shaking fist yelling at the kids to get of his lawn” but c’mon man.

    Votto has been driving the ball since the last 29 games of 2020 when he hit 8 HRs. Bad luck early this year but still 94 average exit. Three HRs in last 5 games. Would take him over Nate Lowe? Or Austin Riley?

    Mejia or Stallings as replacement for Stassi? Another option would be Zunino?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Can try him over Riley

      Stallings

  132. CP says:

    AZ just called up Bukauskas. Drop Lopez to grab him for saves or hold?

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Sure

    Andres Gimenez or Jazz?

    Hey what’s up man? New here and love the site. Got a few for you. I know answers all depend on roster and points but all that aside would you continue to hold or drop Wander Franco, Sixto Sanchez and Deivi Garcia? Are they worth holding and burning up 3 of 7 bench spots?
    -Would you rather have Yermin Mercedes, Zach McKinstry or Nate Lowe on your bench?
    -Clase or Alex Reyes ROS

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Thanks! I don’t know how deep your league is, but Wander and Sixto aren’t doing much this year — yes, Yermin and Lowe

      Clase

  135. fleeced says:

    Garver or Grandal?

    Grey,

    Would you drop Travis Shaw for Avasail Garcia?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      No

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        Grey,

        what is your take on Harold Castro?
        Wouldd you drop McKinstry or travis Shaw for him?

  139. Gonna watch FTJ very closely vs LAD today. What I saw yesterday was reservation. Playing in an almost abbreviated fashion, with extra caution. I get it, back early from what some said was a season ender. Just have some concerns – if this new style of play (staying within himself) is what to expect ROS thats not who I drafted. Bellinger had to have surgery, gut says ditto for Jr. Hoping has a big turnaround, but body language isn’t good…so far

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I don’t see any way he avoids surgery

      • Saw a difference today. Took some good swings and made the decision to activate after he smoked a line out to 3B. Relieved to see him look more like himself. I’m in!

  140. Schmohawks Bob says:
    (link)

    In an NL, who would you drop among Josh Harrison, Dubon, or Eric Gonzalez

    Same question with McKinstry, Raley, and Naquin?

    In AL, could you rank Cole Irvin, Kyle Gibson, Fullmer, and Cobb? Franchy or DJ Stewart?

    Thanks Grey!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Erik G.

      Fulmer, Cobb, Gibson

    Need an opinion on two different deals.

    1. Ohtani for Arenado
    2. Ke’Bryan for Freddy Peralta

    League context: daily h2h categories, 10 teams with 10 keepers each and no salary or draft pick considerations

    Making these deals would leave me with the following roster:
    C – Contreras
    1B – McMahon
    2B – Arraez
    3B – Bregman (when back from COVID list); currently have Hayes here
    SS – Kim
    MI – DeJong
    CI – Arenado; currently have Longoria here
    OF – Acuna, Soto, Meadows, Brantley
    U – Yordan (when back from COVID list); currently have Ohtani here

    Bench bats – Bellinger, Ketel, Wander
    IL bats – Mondesi

    SPs – Flaherty, Luzardo, Hendricks, Gray, Peralta, Gausman, Ynoa, Gibson
    RPs – Hader, Kenley, Castillo, Neris, Reyes, Pagan, Rainey

    IL arms – Carrasco, Sale

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      1. Arenado 2. Ke’Bryan

      • RoarOf84 says:
        (link)

        Ke’Bryan becomes pretty expendable to me if I acquire Arenado.

  142. Brett says:

    Have an open il spot daily moves with category for saves and another for holds with set spots for starters and relievers a reliever with sp eligibility is huge. My current staff is bieber Lynn means mahle Rogers rodon luzardo civale clase Reyes Garrett May pagan.

    Can you rank these il stash’s: Merryweather lugo Pearson

    Thanks

      Grey says:

      Merry, Pearson

  143. JC says:

    Saves and holds are separate cats. Would you trade away J Polanco and Pom for Lowrie and Neris? Ratios matter.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes

      • JC says:
        (link)

        Thanks!
        Do you have Lowrie over J Polanco straight up?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Seems like a coin flip and Lowrie’s been hotter

          • JC says:
            (link)

            That is helpful. Sounds like you prefer Neris over Pom then as well. Thanks!

    Hey Grey! Was offered Matz for my Kennedy (I have Diaz, Holland, and now Dolis as backups, though Dolis may not have the job for long). Which side do you like?

    Thanks!

      Meh, I’d want saves vs. ulcer

      I don’t follow

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        Sorry, he wants a closer, so he threw a few options out for my various guys. The options are:

        1. I swap my Holland for his Gimenez

        2. My Edwin Diaz for his Laureano (not keepable) or Margot (keepable for $3).

        Would you do either of those? Thanks!

    And now Lynn. Fuck that.

    I have the 10th and 15th pick ups tonight.. I could use a hitter, or starting pitcher.. NL only 5×5 keeper.. I have no idea who will be selected ahead of me.. how would you rank ‘em as far as upside and some staying power.
    Slater, Raley, Ynoa, Brett Anderson, Trevor Williams, mcKinney, J. Williams, Rogers, Ross, Dean, Mateo, Ruf, Fedde, Bednar, Perdomo

    Drop Dylan Moore for any of below ? i’m worried the way he’s hitting and if Kelenic is up any day now he will be squeezed out of playing time.
