Since being acquired from the Gnats, five of his eight hits have left the yard, with all five being solo shots. He's now homered in three consecutive games. Nice bang for the buck for those that have him active this week.

Hitting a few, missing more than a few. When he hits them, they are long line drives. Not many singles so far for Cleveland.

DHing, left and right, and Swisher won't be back this year. Kid is getting a chance.

He and Miggy Cabrera are the only 2 active players to hit a walk off in their 1st home game for a team.

I got lucky in my Miller dump a few weeks ago, as Seattle promoted Chris Taylor, and I grabbed him. So far, Taylor is hitting above his abilities, quite a contrast to Miller in 2014.

According to Baseball America, his best defensive asset (his only, really) is his arm. That should play well in the outfield.

Hate to put this kind of hex on Zach, but I finally gave up on Brad Miller on Monday with this guy as his replacement. Cost me 20 percent of my remaining FAAB ($1). A team below me -- there are a few, not many -- claimed him, so it was a necessary expenditure.

With his 9th inning, walk-off homerun in Wednesday night's first game of the double header against Arizona, Zach already is better liked by Cleveland fans than Asdrubal Cabrera, traded to the Nats a few weeks ago even up for Walters.

Asdrubal looked all-starish in 2011 and 2012, but since then has had the unfortunate, though deserved, reputation for hitting poorly in the clutch. That, plus the common wisdom that he was playing out of position, without range at SS, made him a rather unpopular player among Indians fans.

Walters, I read, is barely adequate at SS, where Cleveland does not plan to play him, not with Lindor on the horizon. He's got pop in his bat, and Plain Dealer writer Paul Hoynes sees Walters as one of those many-position-possible guys that Francona loves. Walters could be around for a long time, one of those dollar guys without a starting position who provides a profit.

Replacing Tejada is addition by subtraction. I wouldn't expect Zach Walters to play much and will probably go down when Zim is back.

I can FAAB him and replace Reuben Tejada ... sound like a good move?

Only if you start him after you FAAB him...

2 bombs in his first 4 AB's this year.

Might have some value, Texpope.
