Weiters. It's a pretty easy call in my opinion. Chapman is a great talent, but he doesn't have a set place in the rotation or in the pen yet, and who knows how pitchers will pan out over time. Weiters disappointed last season but was called a generational talent and plays a very shallow position. He also has some time under his belt and a better lineup around him. Finally, you're already keeping Felix and Hanson, so you can take the leap on Weiters as you have two good SPs to anchor your staff.

Weiters of the 2, but who are your other options?

Agreed with the above, it has to be Wieters. Chapman is very unlikely to close or start this year, which really limits his value.

In that case then, Bruce is easily your final keeper. Surprised you didn't mention him in your original post.

Over Bruce? Not sure why you'd make that move, especially when you're already keeping two pitchers, but it's your team.

I agree with this. Bruce is easily the player to go with.

i know it may seem stupid but this is a league where there will be no pitchers in the draft pretty much and there are a lot of options to build my offense around
