Imo, Cano, Trout, Holiday, and Bautista are no-doubters. Then you pick one between Kimbrel, Chapman, Andrus, Encarnacion, and Teixeira. Personally, I don't think I'd keep a closer, however good. Probably not Andrus, but I'd have to look at how other ss score in this league. Encarnacion vs Teixeira is a tough call, though. I'd lean towards Encarnacion, tbh.

If you do keep a closer, I'd go with Kimbrel.

Exactly my thoughts. Cano, Trout, Holiday, Encarnacion and Bautista are your top 5. Closers are a dime a dozen.

I'd have to consider Andrus as a 5th hitter if your leagues uses middles and doesn't have many OF starting positions. League settings have to be a consideration here; all hitters with these choices. 425 points so far from a SS who is only going to get better/stronger seems worthy

Sure, he deserves consideration. All of those other players would be third round or better. Andrus won't be.
