Well I'm not sure if I would drop Pena right now as he is starting the season off well and batting in the #3 slot for the Rays. Is there anybody you can drop? You will definitely want to add Trout before someone else does. If you HAVE to drop Pena, then do it. Trout is a must add right now.

I could drop Torii Hunter too, but I would rather keep him because he is batting over .300

There has to be somebody worse than Pena or Hunter on your team to drop. But picking up Trout is big. I just did it as well.

Drop Schafer.

If you have a player to drop to add Harper or Trout it must be done.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I doubt Trout will outproduce any of the players you mentioned this season. Dropping Schafer for him, though, is a lower-risk move than dropping either of the others.
