The will get their ace back next week. Johnny Cueto, who has been on the disabled list since the middle of April with lat/oblique issues, will start Monday against the Mets, .

Cueto, 27, finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting last season and was 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.04 WHIP before hitting the DL this season. So his return is obviously good news for the Reds, but it also leaves them with a dilemma.

There has been an ongoing debate in the blogosphere on vs. , as to who should be sent to the minors upon Cueto’s return.

Leake, 25, has made 85 career starts, including 30 last season as the Reds won 97 games and the NL Central. He’s 2-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.49 WHIP this season.

Cingrani, 23, has been excellent since being recalled to take Cueto’s rotation spot. The left-hander is 2-0 with a 2.89 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a whopping 37 strikeouts in 28 innings.

Count me among the many Fantasy owners trying to figure out if infielder is the real deal or not? 

I understand why Betancourt is high up on the . He has a boatlaod of Fantasy eligiblibe positions, so the roster flexibility makes him an intriguing add. But Fantasy owners are still faced with the question whether or not to roster the veteran infielder?

Betancourt claims to be a more patient hitter after reworking his plate approach in the offseason, but nothing really in his numbers indicate this is nothing more than a nice hot streak. One of the numbers that concerns me the most is Betancourt’s 14.3 percent . It’s way above his 5.1 percent career average, per FanGraphs.com.

If it doesn’t cost you much to add Betancourt and keep him active while he’s on a roll, then I endorse the move. But if you have to give up a slumping hitter or pitcher with more upside, then I vote against adding Betancourt.

With early struggles at the plate, Fantasy owners have been given little reason to pursue , who has been filling in as the ‘ shortstop in place of Hanley Ramirez (thumb). Still, deep league owners may see Sellers’ .294/.383/.515 line from his three stints at Triple-A Albuquerque and think there is some Fantasy value there.

Sellers can draw walks, but he relied on a high flyball rate and favorable park effects to achieve his power numbers. His flyball-hitting ways won’t produce the same results in Dodger Stadium, so owners won’t get much from Sellers in any category. He can be bypassed in virtually all Fantasy formats.
