What to do with Masahiro Tanaka?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2014) If you own Masahiro Tanaka in Fantasy, your best bet is to hang on to him for now. If you try to trade him with all the uncertainty surrounding his elbow, you might get only pennies on the dollar.

Pennies don't win championships. A crumpled dollar might.

I've downgraded Tanaka in my rankings because, like everyone else, I'm scared. We've seen enough season-ending elbow injuries this year to know how suddenly they pop up, and the lack of information on Tanaka's so far is unsettling. But a panic move is never advised. To trade one of the most valuable players in Fantasy knowing he could end up missing just 2-4 weeks (or whatever), you'd still need something awfully good in return.

Tanaka now ranks 14th for me, meaning I'd still need a true ace to part with him. Cole Hamels is the last of what I'd consider the "true aces," coming in at 13th.

Obviously, that's subject to change as the situation develops, but if you can get one of my top 13 starting pitchers for Tanaka, you might want to unload the worry on someone else.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
