Zinkie: You should definitely put his name on the trade market. You may be pleasantly surprised with the potential return.
@Jpray9: What type of starter should I ask for if I trade Story?
Zinkie: You can set your sights high. Aim for a No. 2 starter. I would likely settle for a No. 3 starter. The hype on Story is enormous right now.
Zinkie on waiver wire pickups
Fred Zinkie on potential waiver wire players
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie talks about potential waiver wire pickups such as Wilson Ramos, Jimmy Rollins and Tyler White
@McMastersCares: Would you trade Story for Johnny Cueto? I have Troy Tulowitzki as my other shortstop.
Zinkie: Despite Cueto's struggles in his most recent start, I would make that trade.
@rogerthaattt: When do you think Jose Berrios will be called up this season?
Fred Zinkie: My guess (and it's just a guess) is that he will come up in May. I believe that the Twins could use an impact starter such as Berrios.
@DMacNoodle: Are you concerned about Adam Wainwright?
Zinkie: I expect Wainwright to be a No. 3 mixed-league starter. That was my expectation prior to the start of the season.
@nmach10: Would you drop Russell Martin for Nick Hundley, Wilson Ramos, Yan Gomes or Yasmani Grandal?
Zinkie: I would stick with Martin. I'm not worried about him. I expect him to be a top 5 catcher.
@BrentCeIek: Has Vince Velasquez's stock risen after his excellent Week 1 start?
Replacing Schwarber on your team
Zinkie on replacing Schwarber on your fantasy team
MLB.com's Fred Zinkie talks about the effect Kyle Schwarber's injury will have on fantasy owners and how to replace him in your lineup
Zinkie: Velasquez is an exciting pitcher to pick up. He could post a strong strikeout total. But he will struggle with his control at times. Still, he should be owned in most leagues.
@__MeatBall: Should I drop Joe Panik or Brandon Phillips for Jean Segura?
Zinkie: I would not drop Panik. I'm fine with dropping Phillips for Segura if you feel like you need a speed boost.
@jeideezy: Should I pick up Nomar Mazara?
Zinkie: In almost all leagues, the 20-year-old should be added. He should be active in 12-team leagues and deep formats. He could hit for average and power.
@Atlbravos16: Would you rather own Tyler White or Steven Souza Jr.?
Zinkie: I would rather own Souza, but it is very close. Souza gets the nod for me because of his basestealing ability.
@bent0dd: Who should I pick up out of Jorge Soler, Delino DeShields, Michael Taylor or Alex Gordon?
Zinkie: You should pick up DeShields, with Gordon as my second choice.
@mitchanderson15: What is your opinion on A.J. Pollock? Will he see action this year?
Zinkie: I expect him to miss enough of the season that he should be dropped in most mixed leagues, unless the owner has unlimited disabled-list space.
@saice80: How would you rank Randal Grichuk, Byron Buxton and Mazara?
Zinkie: Grichuk is way ahead of the other two. I will put Mazara second. I am concerned about Buxton for 2016.
Zinkie on Choo, Mazara
Fred Zinkie on Choo's injury, Mazara's callup
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie discusses Shin-Soo Choo's injury and Nomar Mazara's value as his replacement
@WalterDacon1: Who will get more saves this season, Sean Doolittle or Luke Gregerson?
Zinkie: I expect Gregerson to get many more saves, as the A's have been flexible with their use of Doolittle and Ryan Madson.
@TheCrappyTotals: Are Jeremy Hazelbaker or Joey Rickard worth adding as an extra outfielder?
Zinkie: While all decisions depend on the player you would need to drop, I can see the rationale for add Rickard. He could hit for average and steal bases.
@HueyPJ: Is it time to get Victor Martinez into lineups yet?
Zinkie: He does not need to be in the active lineup in 10-team leagues. In 12-team, it will depend on your options. He should be active in 15-team leagues.
Zinkie on two-start pitchers
Zinkie on two-start starting pitchers for Week 2
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie breaks down some starting pitchers who will have two starts in Week 2 for your fantasy lineup
@jason_hojo: In 12-team rotisserie, is Mallex Smith a must-add player due to his steals potential?
Zinkie: Yes, I believe that Smith deserves a bench spot in many rotisserie leagues. But his stay in the Majors could be a short one.
@Gustbra: Tyson Ross was dropped in my league. Would you drop Michael Pineda, Raisel Iglesias, Patrick Corbin or Taijuan Walker to add him?
Zinkie: I would drop Corbin for him. You have to drop someone. Ross is far too valuable to be on waivers in any league.
@Nick_Kerner: Should I pick up Mark Trumbo and drop Byung Ho Park?
Zinkie: Yes, you should. Even though his power hasn't shined through yet, Trumbo should hit many homers this season.
@NotFakeMatthew: Is Nathan Karns worth adding in any format?
Zinkie: Yes, he is. Karns should be owned in 15-team leagues, and he deserves consideration in 12-team formats.
@malcolm1919: Please share your thoughts on Travis Shaw and his fantasy value.
Zinkie: Shaw should be owned in 12-team leagues and any deep format. I'm not especially optimistic on him, but it is hard to ignore his early-career work as part of a strong lineup.
@thenicksheerin: Should I trade Alex Gordon for Kevin Gausman? Zinkie: Definitely not. Gordon is off to a slow start, but he is a very consistent fantasy asset. He should be active in all five-outfielder leagues.
