He's been awful thus far and now with a wrist injury, would it be crazy to deal him if I have Walker & Wong on my roster too?
He's on his last year of a contract anyway so he must be let go at the end of the season

I have no problem trading him depending on who you are getting back.

I'm in a similar situation to you. I have Pedroia in the last year of his contract, and Kelly Johnson on the bench and exclusive rights to Kolten Wong if I want him this year. However, if I sell Pedroia now, I'd be selling low. I'm not even going to shop him around now for fear of poisoning the well. (Once I get a lowball offer, it will be hard to get that owner to offer more later unless Pedroia really picks up.)
I'd hold unless you have a specific need or a huge gaping hole elsewhere on your team. Hopefully he gets better. It will be hard for him to get worse.

I dealt him. I got Brett Gardner in the last year of his contract and $0 Nick Castellanos.
I felt odd doing it, but then saw DP got a cortisone shot and it made me feel better about the deal.
