1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Ackley
3B - Aramis Ramirez
SS - H. Ramirez
OF - McCutchen, Pence, Werth
Util - Maybin, Freese
BN - Kubel
DL - Crawford

Free Agents as of 4/12 include:
SP - Buchholz, Chacin, Colon, Hochevar, Lynn, Nicasio, Peavy, Samardzija, J. Sanchez
RP - Adams
C - Lucroy, Olivo, Pierzynski, Ruiz, Saltalamacchia

Thanks for any input.

Since you already have 4 OF and Crawford on the DL, I might consider adding Cozart for Kubel, as he if off to a great start, and will have all the chances in the world to get hits with Votto hitting right behind him.

In terms of pitching, I might just stick with what you have. Neither Chacin or Buchholz blows me away any more than your backend starters.

I would drop Worley or Kuroda before I dropped Minor. I also like Samardzija above those two.
