Very nice group you have.
For OF, I'd recommend sitting Choo. He has to go to Oakland for tough pitching and a tough park.
As for Rutledge/Machado, I don't know if anyone's seen enough yet. Depends how much risk of a risk you want to take. With your lineup, I think you can go for it. However, it should be noted that Rutledge plays all 7 games at home next week.

Keeper league? That would definitely be a factor.

Is this keeper or re-draft?


If it's keeper, I would definitely do it.

Re-Draft, I would consider just sticking with Rutledge since he is slightly more proven.

I agree.

Keeper: Machado

This year only: lean to Rutledge, but I wouldn't hesitate to lose Rutledge if the Rox have games on the road and Machado is still available.
