Players to eliminate from my keeper list...

I need to eliminate 6 from the list below and need some help who to keep, who to trade and who to toss back.

Escobar maybe not a keeper, however when I think about how important those SB were last year, I tossed him in the mix. Xander, Gray, Stroman have a ton of value since there are teams that look for young players for their long term plans, including myself.

Pablo's move to boston has me intrigued. Adams platoon has me depressed. Victor is old but hard to ignore what he did last year and the lineup got better.

Outside of trading Jordan Zimmermann for Altuve before last years draft, Brantley was my MVP. I wonder if I should trade him at his high point or hold him for peak years as if his progression is real?

Easy enough to coin flip the closers. Generally I'd eliminate them both, however it always becomes an issue during the draft chasing saves early and has proven to more of a detriment than a wise value decision.

Thanks for any input, I know it's early but I like to get a gameplan going so when other teams start looking I have an idea of who I want to move....


Martinez, Victor(1B) DET
Altuve, Jose(2B) HOU
Sandoval, Pablo(3B) BOS
Escobar, Alcides(SS) KC
Bogaerts, Xander(3B,SS) BOS
Frazier, Todd(1B,3B) CIN
Brantley, Michael(OF) CLE
Jones, Adam(OF) BAL
McCutchen, Andrew(OF) PIT
Adams, Matt(1B) STL

Allen, Cody(P) CLE
Bumgarner, Madison(P) SF
Cueto, Johnny(P) CIN
Gray, Sonny(P) OAK
Price, David(P) DET
Robertson, David(P) CHW
Stroman, Marcus(P) TOR

Cool, thanks. Hate breaking up good teams, but I guess it's better than having a shitty one...

I might even just sit tight and not trade as difficult as that is. They'll be no Trout's or Stanton's coming my way, hard to see where I'd benefit as much as a trading partner moving one of these 11 plus another 1 or 2 you cut. Plenty of time but thanks, I wanted to get a solid keeper base before the league starts getting active again..
