MLB.com fantasy guru Fred Zinkie fielded questions from fans during a live Twitter chat at @Fantasy411 on Tuesday. Check out the chat transcript below, the @Fantasy411 Twitter handle and MLB.com's fantasy home. Questions and answers have been edited for clarity.

Question: @JeJered I have 5 closers. Need starting pitching. Was offered Chris Sale for Zach Britton and George Springer.

Zinkie: Fair deal if you have extra RP.

Question: @icedtee12 I just traded Corey Dickerson for Corey Kluber and Craig Kimbrel. Did I make a good trade?

Zinkie: No, you made a great trade!

Question: @Meekaleak92 Giving up Kimbrel for Prince Fielder, good trade?

Zinkie: No. Kimbrel is a top-three closer.

Question: @CecilsGlasses Pick up Dan Haren or Aaron Harang?

Zinkie: Haren.

Question: @Dilloncolt_16 Should I drop Anthony Rendon after finding out about the oblique strain? Thanks in advance!

Zinkie: No. He has to be retained in all leagues.

Question: @LakeRaMan Need steals and have my choice of Dexter Fowler, Brett Gardner, Elvis Andrus or Leonys Martin. Who do you like?

Zinkie: Gardner.

Question: @jbshoesgetter Trade away Joey Votto and Kole Calhoun for Josh Donaldson?

Zinkie: Depending on your depth, it's probably too much to trade.

Question: @yankees92389 Andrew McCutchen for Kris Bryant. Keeper league.

Zinkie: McCutchen side.

Question: @tonycaruso6 Alex Colome, Mike Foltynewicz or Chase Whitley?

Zinkie: Foltynewicz.

Question: @wfromans Rumblings that Carlos Correa will be called up soon. What do you think?

Zinkie: Likely not soon enough to stash now in shallow leagues.

Question: @Dan_Radin Drop or bench Devin Mesoraco in single catcher league?

Zinkie: Bench.

Question: @LA_Frankie I have SP depth; should I drop Carlos Martinez to stash Marco Gonzales?

Zinkie: Not yet. Give Martinez another start.

Question: @PBCBeat Cole Hamels for Billy Hamilton or George Springer? I could use steals and have good pitching.

Zinkie: Yes, for Springer.

Question: @NHLQubes Thoughts on Brandon Morrow? Worth owning in 10-team mixed leagues?

Zinkie: Use him for favorable starts in 10-team, but not a permanent add.

Question: @sportsweather Got offered Wil Myers for Matt Holliday, worth it?

Zinkie: Stick with Holliday.

Question: @Bigfish116 Drop Yadier Molina for either Yasmani Grandal, Miguel Montero or Derek Norris?

Zinkie: Not yet. Give Molina a little more time.

Question: @MiccicheThomas Is Jake Marisnick worth dropping when Christian Yelich returns from DL?

Zinkie: Would be good to keep if you have room.

Question: @Ynal_Alouri Keep Josh Harrison through slump or add Chris Young, Kevin Pillar, Andre Ethier, Mark Canha or Colby Rasmus?

Zinkie: Could drop and ride hot hands. Ethier now.

Question: @bjbillinger Drop Shane Greene or Chris Tillman for Ian Kennedy? Or let Kennedy get another start before picking up?

Zinkie: Drop Greene and add now.

Question: @ChadBroChiII17 Michael Brantley for Corey Kluber. Fair deal?

Zinkie: Slightly prefer Brantley side.

Question: @mdkail1 Felix Hernandez, DJ LeMahieu and Joe Mauer for Jose Abreu, Josh Harrison and Joakim Soria. Which side do you like more?

Zinkie: Abreu side.

Question: @Fuagman What do you think of Shin-Soo Choo? I don't understand him. Worth picking up in points league?

Zinkie: Add, bench, wait.

Question: @MikeAronofsky Bench, trade or drop Victor Martinez? What's his value now?

Zinkie: Don't drop. Can bench in shallow leagues. Don't sell low via trade.
