Fred Zinkie: You should add Dahl and drop Heyward. Even with an uncertain long-term role, Dahl deserves mixed-league attention.
@Brightweez: Would you start Alex Bregman right away?
Zinkie: Yes. He has the skills and opportunity to make an immediate impact in all leagues.

MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie discusses the Astros calling up top prospect Alex Bregman
@sritsema11: Would you drop Jameson Taillon or Sonny Gray for Zach Eflin?
Zinkie: I would not. Although Eflin is pitching well, his strikeout rate is low.
@mosjeffinitely: Please rank Hernan Perez, Odubel Herrera, Yangervis Solarte, Alex Dickerson and Michael Conforto?
Zinkie: Herrera, Solarte, Conforto, Perez, Dickerson.
@dymondjoe35: Please pick three for the rest of the season from a group of James Shields, Tyson Ross, Blake Snell, Francisco Liriano, Matt Shoemaker, Doug Fister and Zach Davies.
Zinkie: Shoemaker, Snell, Davies.
Zinkie on Dahl being called up
Rockies' second-ranked prospect is called up
MLB.com fantasy reporter Fred Zinkie discusses whether fantasy players should consider Rockies prospect David Dahl
@theonlyshoeeeee: Is it time to cut Joc Pederson?
Zinkie: Pederson should be cut in 10-team and 12-team leagues.
@jlarock: Do you expect to see any young players called up in the coming days?
Zinkie: You should already have scoured your waiver wire for Alex Bregman and David Dahl. I would add Joey Gallo, in case he is traded this week.
@MPAllen95: Should I drop Javier Baez and pick up Jorge Soler?
Zinkie: I would stick with Baez. He has multi-position eligibility, and I expect to receive more playing time than Soler.
@DaManeeee: Please share your thoughts on David Dahl.
Zinkie: I would pick him up. That being said, if the Rockies don't make a trade by the time Gerardo Parra returns from the disabled list, Dahl could go back to Triple-A.
@DN1CE23: Please rank these Raisel Iglesias, Luke Gregerson, Nate Jones, Addison Reed, Ryan Dull and Adam Ottavino.
Zinkie: Dull, Gregerson, Reed, Jones, Ottavino, Iglesias.
@MAS8823: Are you concerned about Jon Lester?
Zinkie: I am not. I expect him to be a solid No. 2 mixed-league starter the rest of the way.

Zinkie on prospects to stash for the near future
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie reveals the prospects that will contribute to big league clubs in the near future
@edemanuelson: Who should I start at shortstop this week out of Alex Bregman, Brandon Crawford or Tim Anderson?
Zinkie: Go with Bregman. He could make a splash right away.
@nmach10: Please pick one of these starters: Hisashi Iwakuma, Anthony DeSclafani, Steven Matz, Jon Gray and Scott Kazmir.
Zinkie: I would take Matz. DeSclafani and Kazmir also deserve consideration.
@MarkStormbro: Please rank Bud Norris, Blake Snell, Jameson Taillon and Hector Santiago.
Zinkie: Snell, Taillon, Santiago, Norris.
@tweiss3: With Jose Bautista coming off the disabled list, who should I drop out of Brett Gardner, Jason Heyward and Yasiel Puig?
Zinkie: You could drop either Heyward or Puig. I'll go with Heyward.
@lorenzoNal: Is Bregman a must-add in a 12-team league?
Zinkie: Bregman is a must-add in every league.
@GarrettPalmer14: With Aroldis Chapman gone, is Andrew Miller worth adding over Steve Cishek or Sam Dyson?
Zinkie: Definitely. Assuming that Miller stays with the Yankees, he is a top-tier closer.
@Mr_Movees87: What can we expect to see from Jarred Cosart this week?
Zinkie: I'm not expecting a great start. He should stay on waivers in mixed leagues.
@ClintRLamb_RBR: Blake Snell or Jose De Leon for ROS?
Zinkie: Snell. But I also expect De Leon to have some fantasy value.
@CoryBaker13: Would you rather own Marco Estrada or Matt Shoemaker for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: Really tough call. I will go with Estrada. They should both be excellent.
Zinkie on waiver-wire options
Nola, Shoemaker among Zinkie's waiver-wire options
MLB.com fantasy baseball writer Fred Zinkie gives owners some of his best waiver-wire pickups, including Aaron Nola and Matt Shoemaker
@cwsdjt: Should I still keep Chris Archer?
Zinkie: For sure. He has a terrific K/9 rate. You can bench him if you wish.
@TroyThibodeaux1: Is Andrew Miller the new closer for the Yankees? And, should he be owned in all leagues?
Zinkie: Yes and yes.
@Tribe_time2016: I have Alex Bregman and Corey Seager. Could I trade Seager for a mixed-league ace?
Zinkie: More likely a good No. 2 starter for Seager.
@Leahy_M82: Is Michael Brantley worth keeping in a disabled-list spot? Zinkie: You can drop Brantley if you have other good candidates for that spot.
