3B: J. Uribe, N. Arenado, or Sandoval

I have all three and have place for one. Until now I had P. Sandoval, 4* player at 7,5,1. He was ok for me batting at an even 300 with occasional pop. But now I got on my inactives J. Uribe 4.5* player at 8,5,2. And I also have N. Arenado also a 4.5* player at 7,6,3. So which one should I keep as the third baseman?

    gotta go with uribe. contact is the most important stat. his power isn't much worse than arenado, either.

    i used arenado for a long time; he's a good player but his average was just under .300 for me. i think uribe should hit at least .315 with similar power.

    pablo is a distant third, here.

    Uribe for sure. That 8 hitting is a big upgrade over 7. The other two categories are all close. But hitting to me is the most important. I agree with yaybaseball.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Yay and Amused. Uribe is your guy.

    This isn't as clear cut as others have been saying, because you didn't mention that Sandoval is a switch hitter.

    I kept him until I had a 9-hitting batter to replace him, for that reason.

    If you want to go with Uribe though, putting Sandoval in your subs would be an excellent move.

    Keep Arenado and Panda if you go with Uribe. I have a feeling both players may see higher ratings around mid season if that's when the next reranking happens.

    I went with Uribe. To make things more complicated, I just drafted Justin Turner who is 9,2,4. Do I still keep Uribe?

    Ny:

    It looks like Uribe might have had a short run at starting. I believe you should make J. Turner the starter. Both are right handed batters, and 9 hitting always trumps 8.

    Yes. Turner it is. Uribe's run is over is my opinion.

    Gotta be Turner! I have used both! Uribe's boost in power is nice but Turner has hit for .390+ for me!
