Evan Gattis and Yonder Alonso are both available, I could use a first basemen and need someone with some pop in their bat. Gattis may be losing some playing time as well. Which of these two guys should I pick up, if either at all? I am dropping Chris Johnson to do so.

Long term i think Yonder since Gattis might lose time with McCann coming back soon. But if Gattis wasn't going to lose time i'd take him.

I'd take Alonso. He's a better hitter and in no danger of losing playing time. Gattis is a decent short term option at catcher, but with McCann healthy and Heyward back in a couple weeks, he'll be on the bench 5 days every week.
