Valverde

I think he is starting his rehab assignment soon, but does anyone think he is really worth holding on to? He will take over as the closer when he comes back. The reason I ask is because Arizona only 2 saves in all of July! That is just terrible, Francisco Cordero got 2 in one day for gosh sakes!

Only those most desperately vulturing for saves should cling to Valverde. Even if he does get the opps that doesn't mean he has the talent to create saves out of them, he has yet to truly prove himself.

Two saves is still two saves. The real question is whether he will be valuable enough to sacrifice another player on your roster--which of course, only you know.

I think he was inquiring about if Valverde would have a worthwhile amount of saves.

Because I wanted to see who was going to hold onto him after he came off the DL. I have the same thoughts as you though, and I am not sure if he is valuable enough to me to drop someone for him.

I'll hang onto him, at least for a spell. But I'll probably leave him inactive for a couple outings to see where he's at. Due to an especially deep league he had value (even with low saves) for his K/9 rate and WHIP, at least in the last few weeks before getting hurt. That injury was some seriously bad timing.
