Depends on keeper rules. In general, I would say Bye Bye Dee Gordon, and then try to use Uggla to upgrade at 3b. I am just not sure how long Middlebrooks can stay in the lineup, as he requires either Youk or Ortiz to sit or Adrian Gonzalez to play the OF.

Duda sucks. He's only hit 1 HR in the last 35 games, and doesn't provide much else either. Kendrick has been crap lately but he has a far superior track record. I would make the swap.
