8x8 16 team roto league, keep 8 total. My keepers are insanely hitter heavy, but I feel I have no other choice. My final decision is to keep another bat (McCann) or try to balance things a little by keeping Josh Johnson. What do you all think?

Thanks in advance for your help. Leave a link if you'd like me to return the favor.
I would go with Johnson. Like you said, it balances your team out a bit. Also, McCann is going to be out a month minimum from the sounds of it. Not that Johnson doesn't have his injury concerns but he could be a solid SP2 for you if he returns at all back to his form. Your team seems pretty solid and I would think you could get a catcher that could put up McCann's numbers easily considering the time he will miss.
I would not keep either if i could avoid it. Both have bad shoulders, Johnson may be better than last year. Mccann is healing slowly. If I had to keep one it would be Johnson. I suggest that you offer another keeper for 2-3 players and keep the new players.
McCann is not ready so I would pass. I would keep Johnson, but I like Anderson more. Anderson will be available later in the draft than Johnson, so still target Anderson and trade Johnson after the draft and before the start of the season.
