Nick Johnson to FishPosted by Derek Carty at 5:04pm
The trade: Nationals' 1B Nick Johnson for Marlins' prospect Aaron Thompson
The Nats needed to move Johnson, but Thompson isn't a guy I'd be thrilled with. He's not fantasy relevant, in any case. Johnson's value rises a bit moving to the better offense as he should collect some more RBI and runs. He'll move Jorge Cantu back to third base and finally push Emilio Bonifacio to the bench. He'll play some games all over the infield and in left field, so his value isn't trashed, but he won't be particularly useful except for a handful of steals. If you were still hanging onto him at this point, guys, sorry, but you probably deserve this.
This also eliminates much of 1B Gaby Sanchez's speculative value for this year. It looked like he might find regular PT at 1B in the near future, but that won't happen unless Johnson gets injured (crazier things have happened ) and the team decides to play Sanchez over Bonifacio.
Derek Carty, 23, has also been published by NBC's Rotoworld, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, and USA Today. This season, he'll be contributing to FanDuel and will be linking to all of his work at DerekCarty.com. In his three years competing in expert leagues, he has won 2 titles with 4 top three finishes, including a LABR NL title in 2009, making him the youngest person to ever win a major expert league title. Derek is a proud graduate of the MLB Scouting Bureau's Scout Development Program and is a firm believer in the importance of combining stats and scouting. He welcomes questions via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
