Starting to think about keepers

I'm in a 12 team 5x5 roto keeper league. We keep 15 players each year with salaries totaling $320. There is typically a $5 raise given to players each year, but on hold this off-season, so salaries shown get no raises.

I've worked to acquire some assets (i'm at the bottom of the league this year - Recently traded a $17 Abreu for $25 Olson, going for youth. Also traded $25 Hader for $10 Lux), and have players listed below by position.

1B - Olson $25, Mancini $6

2B - Albies $17, Lux $10

3B - Arenado $39, Kieboom $10, Torkelson $5

SS - Lindor $33, Rosario $16

OF - JD Martinez $40, Laureano $19, Winker $10, Carlson $10, Mercado $10, Mountcastel $4, T. Hernandez $2

SP - Verlander $41, Berrios $20, E-Rod $16, Fried $15, Urquidy $14, Skubal $10, Dunning $10, Pearson $6, Turnbull $3

RP - Bradley $16, Gallegos $15, Ginkel $10, Karinchak $8

Who are your must keep players and who are guys you would consider trading? If you're up for picking 15 players to keep at this point, would love to hear that as well.

Surprised by Rosario. I loved him coming into the season, but he seems to have lost his starting role. Do you see a big bounce back?

Hoping Mancini comes back strong next year, think he's a potential steal for $6.

Thanks for the help.

Sorry, I see it's SS so it should've been obvious, but I was thinking of Eddie Rosario -- No way do I keep Amed -- I Mancini can come back, no idea if he will, there's a lot of time between now and next year -- you don't exactly have a ton of options, I'd look at Lux, I guess, over Amed
