Well Maybin is the only one of those guys who is likely to be a full-time player this year, but I don't like Maybin as a fantasy player for now nor the future. I am guessing there are better players than Maybin available on the waiver wire.
Bradley made the Opening Day roster for the Red Sox, but I imagine he will go back to the minors once David Ortiz returns in a couple of weeks. Bradley is a good prospect, but a large part of his game is defense, which doesn't help you in fantasy. Bradley will be a better real life player than fantasy player, but could still be a decent fantasy player too.
I believe Taveras and Myers will get called up in late May or early June and will be regulars the rest of the season.
A: Taveras, Myers, Bradley, Puig, Hamilton, Maybin
B: Taveras, Myers, Puig, Hamilton, Bradley, Maybin
