MLB.com fantasy expert Fred Zinkie fielded questions from fans during a live Twitter chat (at @fantasy411) on Monday. Read through the best of the Q&A below. Questions and answers have been edited for clarity.
@AC0N13: Would you rather have Sean Manaea or Justin Verlander for the stretch run?
Fred Zinkie: Verlander is still my pick, although the gap has become very narrow.
@giov301: Would you prefer Yu Darvish or Jacob Arrieta?
Zinkie: I'll take Darvish, who could win plenty of games down the stretch.
@STANLEY73: Should I add Steven Souza Jr., Starling Marte or Tommy Pham?
Zinkie: Grab Marte. Pham is my second choice.
@tahamufti1: How would you rank Nick Williams, Avisail Garcia, Matt Kemp, William Myers and Gerardo Parra?
Zinkie: Myers, Parra, Williams, Kemp, Garcia.
@Sonny_Crockett6: Do you prefer Amed Rosario or Timothy Beckham for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: Go with Rosario. But Beckham is an underrated option right now.
@McGuireGMM: Should I add Hyun-Jin Ryu, JC Ramirez or A.J. Griffin?
Zinkie: Go with Ryu. Ramirez would be my second choice.
@speej63: Am I better to stash Gleyber Torres or Victor Robles in a keeper league?
Zinkie: Torres is my pick.
@MarkAPier: Which injured player should I add: Starlin Castro or Michael Taylor?
Zinkie: Add Taylor, who can contribute in all categories.
@GatoViejoPelota: Please rank Aaron Nola, Carlos Rodon, Rich Hill, Jimmy Nelson and Sonny Gray.
Zinkie: Nola, Hill, Nelson, Gray, Rodon.
@MarkAPier: Are you in favor of picking up Beckham? I'm in a 12-team league.
Zinkie: Yes, he should be added in 12-team leagues.
@BIGMACwFRIES45: Please pick one of Jason Kipnis, Jedd Gyorko or Castro.
Zinkie: Kipnis. But I don't have great optimism for any of them.
@TJNicol10: Would you rather have Mike Moustakas or Travis Shaw for the remainder of the season?
Zinkie: Moustakas. Great breakout seasons for both players.
@alex_hudock: How much do you buy into Shane Greene as Detroit's closer for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: I fully expect Greene to keep the closer's role.
@statcher5: Should I own Manaea or Charlie Morton for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: Go with Morton, who should log similar ratios and has a better supporting cast.
@JonSeger: Do you prefer Josh Reddick or Aaron Hicks for the rest of the season?
Zinkie: Reddick. Superior supporting cast gives him the edge.
@Andrew__Holland: Is Jonathan Villar going to help my team at any point this season?
Zinkie: You can drop him. But don't ignore him in 2018 drafts.
@Random_Joel66: Which two players should I keep out of Gyorko, Yoan Moncada and Rosario?
Zinkie: Keep the rookies. Gyorko has really struggled of late.
@sp_salas: Is it safe to drop Johnny Cueto?
Zinkie: Yes, in 10-team leagues. Even those in 12-team leagues can consider it.
@JohnCSmithWOOD: Should I move Clayton Kershaw for Zack Godley?
Zinkie: I would rather have Godley than Kershaw for the rest of the season.
@Darkhorse0318: Should I accept an offer of Jacob Arrieta for Hill. Also, should I pick up Rosario and let Jose Cabrera go?
Zinkie: I'm in the minority, but I'll take Hill. Also, I wouldn't drop Cabrera for Rosario.
@Matt2628: Please rank Kevin Gausman, Jameson Taillon, Collin McHugh, Morton and Taijuan Walker.
Zinkie: Morton, McHugh, Walker, Taillon, Gausman.
@nickb88: Should I own Rafael Devers or Alex Bregman?
Zinkie: Go with Bregman.
@fubzeppelin: Should I grab Sam Dyson or Brad Ziegler as a bottom-of-the-barrel closer?
Zinkie: Add Ziegler, who should be better than you expect.
@warwickwizard: With George Springer coming back, which slumping player do I drop out of Xander Bogaerts, Matt Carpenter, Corey Dickerson or Marte?
Zinkie: Drop Dickerson.
@mhblack: Who's the better young keeper out of Paul DeJong, Clint Frazier, Bradley Zimmer?
Zinkie: Zimmer. Frazier would be my second keeper pick.
