    Posted: 15 Apr 2013 at 11:51am
I am in a 10-team mixed keeper league. My starting catcher is Jonathan Lucroy and my backup is Ryan Doummit. I am considering dropping Doumit and picking up Carlos Ruiz when he comes off suspension. He hits for higher average but is a bit lower in HR and RBI. The only advantage to Doumit is that he can play C or OF.
 
Does this make sense or is it essentially aneutral trade?

Pretty even. I would just keep Doumit. I like that he does not play catcher everyday but is stil in the lineup.

Keep Doumit.  With him you don't have to worry about a drop-off in production due to a reliance on PEDs.  Yes, I get that Ruiz was busted for amphetamines and not steroids or HGH but let's be honest, he had a breakout year at 33 years of age and he gets caught with an illegal substance.  Something is not adding up.  I'm not saying he will be useless but I certainly would not anticipate last year's numbers as the norm.
