I'd definitely go with Jeter. His average should bounce back at least a little and 100 runs from your shortstop is still pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of your other options but I guess I'd go with Oswalt. You could do worse for a second starter.

Since you've got Tulo, I wouldn't keep Jeter unless you've got a specific trade you can use him in. Otherwise, he doesn't have a lot of value to you as either an IF or U (not enough in either power or speed).

I'd keep Oswalt and Gardner.

I will agree with this. Jeter is a nice SS but not a great Util play.
