Fred Zinkie: I wouldn't drop him for Porcello. But I would make the move for Taillon if Tanaka doesn't fare well tonight.
@Beazell_: Should I drop Jose Quintana to add Brandon McCarthy?
Zinkie on Keuchel's injury
Zinkie looks at replacements for Keuchel after injury
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie breaks down what fantasy owners should do after Dallas Keuchel landed on the 10-day disabled list
Zinkie: Unless you are truly desperate for immediate pitching help, I can't recommend that move.
@withoutwaxxx: Please rank these non-closer relievers, based on their potential to get saves this season: Brad Hand, Trevor Rosenthal and Joakim Soria.
Zinkie: Soria, Hand, Rosenthal.
@MattPercheski: Should I add Mallex Smith or Lewis Brinson?
Zinkie: Smith. More secure role and more speed.
@drstuck: Will Eric Thames bounce back or should I try to trade him?
Zinkie: I expect a bounceback. In fact, he is a buy-low target in some leagues right now.
@andrew_salas: What are your expectations for Lewis Brinson?
Zinkie: The range is really wide, depending on usage. For now, grab him in all 12-team leagues and 10-formats with deep benches.
@Joshua_Pollard7: What are reasonable expectations for Wilson Ramos when he returns?
Zinkie: Top 10 catcher should be easily attainable. Top 5 is a stretch, but possible.
@tahamufti1: Would you drop Jameson Tallion, Buck Farmer, Joe Ross or Aaron Nola for Brad Peacock?
Zinkie: You could drop Ross for Peacock.
@kevinarts: Any chance Santiago Casilla is closing for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: Yes, there is definitely a chance. I don't expect him to lose his role. But he could be traded next month.
@fubzeppelin: Should I drop Ian Happ for Tim Beckham?
Zinkie: I'm not ready to make that move. I still have some hope for Happ.
Breaking down Andrus' value
Zinkie on if Andrus' hot start is sustainable
On the Fantasy 411 podcast, MLB.com's Fred Zinkie discusses if Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus' hot start is sustainable
@DbLaZe802: I need saves. Should I drop Edinson Volquez or Zack Wheeler to pick up Matt Albers?
Zinkie: Drop Volquez for Albers. He could be a short-term saves source.
@Kevin_Martiny: Is Aaron Judge a top 10 player going forward?
Zinkie: I'm going to put him just outside that group. But he might be a top 10 hitter.
@nickb88: Do you prefer Matt Carpenter or Todd Frazier?
Zinkie: I'll take Carpenter. I'm still a believer.
@GeekyBaseball: When is the time to pick up Amed Rosario?
Zinkie: Now. I expect him to come up this month.
@corycarpenter33: Is Rich Hill worth picking up off waivers?
Zinkie: With his recent inconsistency, he is a pitch-or-ditch option in shallow leagues. Ditch for this week.
Zinkie offers Tip of the Day
Zinkie recommends Fulmer for Tip of the Day
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie joins the Rundown to recommend Michael Fulmer as the Tip of the Day
@BPalermo1: Do you have hope for John Lackey to rebound, or are you cutting bait for Dan Straily, Francisco Liriano or Sean Newcomb?
Zinkie: You can cut him for Straily.
@peterkrysso: Should I add David Peralta or Hunter Renfroe? Also, Jose Pirela or Andrelton Simmons?
Zinkie: Renfroe, Simmons.
@TimTheGrizzly: Is it time to give up on Gerrit Cole?
Zinkie: I'm fine with dropping Cole in shallow leagues. His struggles are not confined to this season.
@al9x1: Is it time to drop Alex Bregman for Tim Beckham?
Zinkie: No, stick with Bregman. His ceiling is so much higher than that of Beckham.
@theonlyshoeeeee: Please order Gregory Polanco, Chris Davis, Hernan Perez, Whit Merrifield and Nick Castellanos.
Zinkie: Davis, Polanco, Merrifield, Perez, Castellanos.
@RayCash42890142: Do you prefer Steven Matz or Jeff Hoffman?
Zinkie: Definitely Matz. I have high hopes.
@Matt2628: Is Corey Knebel now an elite fantasy closer? Zinkie: No, but he's knocking on that door.
