Um, interesting team you have here. No real way to dance around it, but you're pitching can't be any worse for a 12 team. Let's look at the good part first.

Offense: Very solid overall but there are some injury concerns with Rollins, Cruz, and Sizemore. Your power is good but you have very little speed outside of Davis and Rollins. A team like this would need to finish high in all the offensive categories.

Pitching: Ouch. John Danks is a servicable 3 - 4th starter. Edwin Jackson and Matusz are solid sleepers. Other than that, you do not have a #1, 2 or 3 fantasy starter.

I would try to trade Cano for either an ace pitcher or two #2 - #3 SP types. Slide Hill into that spot and pick-up somebody off waivers. If you could send an OF away and pick someone decent off waivers i would do that too. You don't want to start the year with this SP core, you'll fall too far behind in pitching and never catch up.

It's hard to guess this type of thing since it's up to that specific owner and how their team is made up. Doesn't hurt to try!
