Pablo Sandoval, Giants: Panda has always had a decent walk rate, so why is he here, you ask? No home runs and three errors, along with 18 strikeouts are keeping him from being a must-own in points leagues right now. Given his history, it is certainly possible that he turns this around, but do yourself a favor and bench him until he does.
David Wright, Mets: He was among the first third basemen off the board in our draft, but he is 17th among third basemen in points scored. His 23 strikeouts to just six walks and only one home run have a lot to do with that. Trade him if you can get good value. If not, bench him and pick up a hot hitter until he turns it around.
Yangervis Solarte, Yankees: Solarte seems to have a pretty firm hold on third base, which is good news for points leaguers. He has 11 strikeouts and nine walks, meaning you aren’t losing extra points there. In points leagues, you don’t have to hit 30 home runs to be valuable.
Trevor Plouffe, Twins: He isn’t as widely available anymore. Probably because he is second only to Josh Donaldson in points among third basemen. His 14:17 walk-to-strikeout ratio have a lot to do with that, and he has only committed two errors. If you can get him for reasonable value, you should do it.
