Keepers in sig, H2H league, we keep outright 20 players and 8 minor leaguers.

After winning the regular season 3 years running, Injuries derailed me last year, so I tanked and I'm going to be picking 3rd overall, so I'll likely get either Tanaka/Gray/Bryant with my first round pick.

My bats are sexy, and I'm particularly stacked at OF with Trout/Braun/Bruce/Choo/Yelich/Martin/A. Garcia. Pitching struggled last year for a myriad of reasons, but I addressed it reasonably well at the trade deadline last year.

Here are my fringe keeper options if I had to choose today (I have 19 in my sig I feel good about so can add one more):

A-Cab/LoMo
Niese/Wood/Quintana/Straily
Kepler/Williams (for minor leaguers)

Another owner wants Braun, has offered Minor/Arenado/Phillips for my Braun/A-Cab/Alex Wood/David Dahl.
I think that's too rich, but I wasn't planning on keeping A-Cab or Wood, Dahl has upside but character questions, and Braun....well, he bent me over last year so I have no idea what to expect from him.

Is this just selling too low on Braun, or would it be a deal that would give my team a shot of youth and the balance it needs?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

your side should not be giving the 4th (extra) player. if anything the non-braun side should be giving up more.

Managing risk more than anything...I've got a roster full of guys with question marks (E-Cab, Pujols, Headley, Kinsler, Braun, Greinke), so if I could get some more stability heading into the draft that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

Keep Braun, your fine. Those types of deals will be there even if he has a horrible April/ early May. There's no reason to sell low in your situation.
