Cano would be my choice. CarGo would be my 2nd choice, but I would go Cano.

When do you have to have this decision by? I would like to know where Fielder lands before you have to make this decision. I think I might lean toward Fielder but Cano is a very good option. Couple questions that I just thought about, what 1B and 2B are available? With your keeper setup, it could make one more shallow than the other.

I think you have to go with Cano here like the others have said. Great numbers at a week position in which Robbie is the best.

please help

Santos may not even close. Keep Cano and Fielder with your two SPs. In a 4 keeper league plenty of RPs will be available.

With that staff i would rate them in this order
1st Cano, hes a monster at a thin position
2nd Gonzalez, great overall numbers
3rd Fielder, where does he end up? He could move up a spot, depending on where he lands.
4th Verlander, too many pitchers.
Even though you can protect a 2nd reliever i would consider dropping one. If that is your entire protected roster go with either Gonzalez or Fielder. I rate them pretty close.

Cano because of the position. I also do not undersatnd the infatuation with mid-tier relievers. I rather have Verlander early on than a crummy mid-tier releiver late. Good value or not, they are a fool's bet longterm. Most of them are lose significant value within 3 years. Some lose their value completely.
