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.
@JasonAbes93: Please rank Wil Myers, Gerardo Parra, Hanley Ramirez and David Peralta.
Zinkie: Ramirez, Myers, Parra, Peralta.
@MrRoutine: Which player should I drop out of Chris Carter and Marcell Ozuna?
Zinkie: Of the two, you should drop Carter.
@Scott__Tompkins: Can I drop Prince Fielder in a 12-team league?
Zinkie: You can make that move.
@konamiQB: Can I drop Dellin Betances for Jake Lamb?
Zinkie: You can drop Betances for a hitter that will go into your lineup. He will likely get few saves or wins this year.
@STANLEY73: Should I pick up Odubel Herrera or Nomar Mazara?
Zinkie: Herrera. He has been consistent and effective this year.
@nickalbrinck12: Please rank Dallas Keuchel, Steven Matz and Corey Kluber.
Zinkie: Kluber, Matz, Keuchel.
@real_wes_trunk: Who do you think will get most save chances in Houston?
Zinkie: My gut says Ken Giles. But it's just a hunch.
@19orBust: Should I drop or reserve Hunter Pence?
Zinkie: If you don't have disabled-list space, you can consider dropping him.
@SslaydenMlb: Should I drop Eduardo Rodriguez for one of Patrick Corbin, Josh Tomlin, Matt Andriese or Doug Fister?
Zinkie: Pick up Tomlin.
@MSantiago_21: Would it be crazy to trade Giancarlo Stanton for Francisco Lindor in a 12-team league?
Zinkie: It isn't totally crazy. But it isn't good value either. You should be able to get someone else with Lindor.
@StevenDavidF: Should I drop Randal Grichuk for Leonys Martin or Rajai Davis?
Zinkie: I would feel comfortable dropping him for Martin.
@LobertRock: Should I try to sell Nick Castellanos?
Zinkie: Yes, this is a good time to sell high on him.
@ItsSalJr: Should I consider trading Chris Sale? He has struggled in his recent starts.
Zinkie: You shouldn't sell low on him. He is still a top-five starter.
@TheReal_Ankur: Would you rather own Addison Russell or Jhonny Peralta for the rest of season?
Zinkie: Peralta. Russell hasn't really broken through this year. More walks, but not more power.
@duncee15: Who would you rather stash, Jameson Taillon or Tyler Glasnow?
Zinkie: Taillon. I would rather stash Blake Snell than either one.
@LobertRock: Should I drop Russell Martin for Stephen Vogt, or will Martin bounce back all the way?
Zinkie: I'm not sure to what degree Martin will bounce back. But I would keep him over Vogt.
@RonnDogg74: Is it time to drop Luke Gregerson?
Zinkie: He should likely be retained for at least one week in all leagues.
@rhj_24324: I was offered Stanton for Corey Seager. Should I accept the offer?
Zinkie: It's risky. I would likely make the deal. It depends on your place in the standings and your need for risk.
@Shiv1537: Are Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright rotation fixtures in a 10-team league? Would you own either of them over a struggling Drew Smyly?
Zinkie: Yes, I would own either one over Smyly.
@ThatsJustGio86: Should I trade Carlos Correa for Lindor in a keeper league?
Zinkie: Lindor is very valuable in a keeper league. But I would rather own Correa.
@joesmith27342: Do you expect Eduardo Nunez's success will last?
Zinkie: Not to this degree. But he can be started in 12-team mixed leagues until he cools off.
@BennyB69420: Should I sell high on Mark Trumbo?
Zinkie: Don't sell high. He may regress, but it won't be a massive regression.
‏@JayinMilwaukee: I need a player that will get steals without hurting my batting average or on-base percentage. Who should I target?
Zinkie: Jonathan Villar is your trade target.
