My team is attached in the signature with my roster specifications... Who should I add of the following list I have one open spot? Looking for a player with some upside that will produce. Should I grab a back up SS cause that is the only position I don't have a back up for or since there are a good amount of there should I grab one of the nice upside OFers out there? Thanks Grey! Also should I cut Kyle Seager for any of these players?

Ryan Dempster
Wandy Rodriguez

Like Rutledge, Teheran, Segura from those options.
Maybe trade?

Agree Rutledge so you get a backup SS. You don't really need Seager as you have two 3b and any IF can be his backup. And a backup of Rutledge covers SS and the OF as well (thru Zobrist). I would get a 1b at UT instead of OF.

Not a fan of Reddick. I think a bunch of those OF are better - maybe Cuddyer so you also get 1b covered. Or see what other 1b are out there you can slide into Utility.

With that open slot on your roster I'd suggest adding Wandy..He had a solid season last year and he's on a better team this year which is obviously useful. Also, you could drop Seager and add Rutledge if you'd like to add that backup SS.

I would add Sugura, but Rutledge is close behind him at SS. In addition, I would drop Seager and pick up Angel Pagan.

help me?

Segura/Rutledge are good. I like both.

I do have a question for you. Do you plan on keeping Taveras this year? If he is not going to be one of your 8 keepers, then there is really no need to keep him on your roster...you could grab someone else as well.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
