Carlos Quentin or Derrek Lee in 2011?

Either guy would only be playing UTL on my roster.  My positions are filled.

Carlos Quentin seems to be a major tease.  The power potential is great, but he seems to get hurt a lot and has posted poor batting averages.  Apparently he has been a little unlucky with the BABIP, however, I don't see much improvement if he continues to hit pop ups.  It seems like a long time ago, but he was huge in 2008  The talent is there, but health and consistency is not.

Derrek Lee recently signed with the Orioles and goes to a favorable hitting environment.  My guess is that Showalter will most likely put him either 3/4/5 in the lineup, which should be good for runs/rbis.  The concern is that he will be 36 this year and is coming off thumb surgery.  Despite a bad 2010 campaign, he is only a year removed from .300+ 30+hr in 2009.

Who do you prefer to play in the UTL spot of your lineup?  The young injury prone kid or declining vet?

Any projections for each?
