I definitely wouldn't keep Ethier - no need to keep four OFers in your format.

For the 10th spot my thought was to keep Panda but in a keeper and with your lack of young starting outside if Latos I would keep Bauer and I'm not even a fan. I just think with 120 guys being kept you need another starter to anchor your staff long term. And Altuve isn't a lock either depending on your free agent pool. If 2B will be easier to fill then keep Panda - if 3B is more available keep Altuve. Neither are locks in your format IMO.

Good luck.

Last couple were hard. I don't love keeping Rollins or Altuve and considered dropping one for Peavy/Kuroda but I think I would prefer to have most of my lineup filled and go into the draft looking for pitching.

^^I'm ok with this, but I may dump Altuve for Middlebrooks as long as you have a CI slot to fill. Otherwise I would stick with him.

I'm tempted to keep Trevor Bauer. Does anyone think he's worth keeping?

No, and definitely not with your options keeper wise.

Choo
Jennings
Middlebrooks
Molina
Rizzo
Rollins
Sandoval
Upton
Latos
Kimbrel

I would keep Middlebrooks over Altuve. You can get more speed later in the draft, and Middlebrooks will provide more pop to your lineup plus his OPS is 100 points higher. Worst case scenario, you just punt steals, it's a H2H league.

No. You have better choices on your roster.

Agreed. Bauer makes me nervous. Huge potential, but until he begins correcting his BB9 I'll let someone else risk it.
