1. Does this damage my pitching too much?
2. Am I overpaying to have this prospects at a dirt cheap price for 3 years once I decide to activate them?
1) I need to know how many teams your league has, what your salary cap is, and most importantly what the rest of your rotation looks like.
2) Yes, I think you are overpaying IMO. You are giving up David Price for 2 years with a very good contract for a standard cap league. Price is elite, but also still young and improving. You are also giving up Duffy, who doesn't have as high a ceiling as Miller or Teheran IMO, but could still become a good starter.
Teheran and Miller both have high upside, but both are prospects. And while having them at $1 for 3 years is very alluring if they break out, that would be assuming a best case scenario. A more probable scenario is that one of the two works out and the other doesn't. That would still be pretty good, but again, does it make up for Price?

I wouldn't have a problem moving Choo or Hudson. But there is an issue of taking on Cahill for that price, which I don't think is great. And something tells me that if you "need" Cahill, your pitching may take a big hit from losing Price.
