Quick Pick up for Spot Starts...

By Corey R. Cunningham
3B/SS Kyle Seager for the Seattle Mariners, yes he is multi position eligible. For a team that does not produce a whole lot of offense, the Mariners as of now have some quality guys to pick up off the FA wire. I have noticed many Mariners still lay on the wire itself. I recently acquired Seager to fill a hold I had after dropping Derek Lowe from his last start.

Seager will produce as of now in most of the offensive categories, R, H, RBI, HR, TB, and AVG. Right now Kyle has a .292 BA, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 5 R and 1 SB. Seager has been batting manly in the 5th batting position with occasionally getting the nod in the 6th spot, and he manly has played 3B all year, except for a start at 2B. Kyle played enough games in 2011 at SS to become eligible for that position this year, however, he has not started their and most likely won't, pending injury.

If you need a bench player, or perhaps a MI/CI player, you might want to consider drafting

Kyle Seager for another couple of weeks.

SP Drew Pomeranz for the Colorado Rockies. Even though Pomeranz struggled mightily in his first start back from the DL on April 15th, you might want to consider using a roster spot on him. The next 3 out of 4 games on paper are favorable for Pomeranz as his opponents coming in order are (pending weather) @ Milwaukee (not in Coors Field could be a great thing), Vs. NYM, Vs. Dodgers and @ San Diego. The Dodgers I would say as they are off to the hot start would be the most unfavorable matchup for the young Southpaw.

Pomeranz was the piece of gold the Rockies wanted in exchange for Ubaldo Jimenez. Even though Colorado is not exactly the best pitchers park, Pomeranz has the stuff to be a dominant pitcher in that park. If you don't have Drew on your minor league roster in any dynasty league more than likely he will be on the FA list due to his numbers. Pomeranz stands with a 0-1 record, 10.38 ERA, 3 K, 2 BB, and a 2.54 WHIP. Do not let these numbers fool you as Drew has the ability to conquer and overcome.
