Michael Del Zotto has gotten a bad reputation among fans of teams that he has played for. Not fully sure why this is, but, he is a young player who has the potential to be a offensive producer. However, the thing that is really nice about Del Zotto is that he plays games.

Since his rookie season in 2009 he has had four seasons in which he has played 60 or more games. Del Zotto hasn’t faced injury problems and so that makes him useful to a team. He may cost a bit more than you want to pay him, but if you get good work out of him, he may be worth it.
