Erick Aybar 15.00 same deal as Mouse. I have Trout for 5.00 and he will be that again next year. Thats when I will add years to his contract.
Fernando Rodney at 1.00 and he will be going into his second year. Casey Janssen 1.oo same deal second year.
Erasmo Ramirez , Corey Kluber, David Huff and J.A. Happ all at 1.00 Plus Price at 20.00. A few other guys like Elvis Andrus who is 35.00 and Arod 34.00 who I won't keep . We can keep up to 8 players. 12 teams AL only standard 5x5 scoring.
Even adding $5 next year (and honestly, even adding an additional $5 the following year) Price will still be a solid asset) Looking at your staff, I'd keep Price this year, let it be known he can be had towards the deadline, but only for the right package, and be willing to extend him for $5 the following year. After that, I'd look to move him at the deadline, and you'll still get a solid return for him since the acquiring owner has the option to extend at $5 that next year, and in theory still be below his converted auction dollar figure, granted with a smaller window of profit/risk.
I'd try to move Dunn. I have him projected out at 30 hr, .230 BA with appropriate counting stats, and in a 12 team AL only (5 OF MI CI) I have his auction price at $11. I have Aybar at $21 for this year, so he's up against it also when you factor in the $5 raise. Rodney (projected $19), Janssen ($8), Ramirez ($8) are great values. I'd cut ties with Kluber and Happ if you need a spot or to save money. I would without question cut Huff, even at a buck. I project Huff out at -13.
Like you said, both Andrus and Arod are too spendy in this format.
I have Trout worth $46 (and when bidding gets going, you know he'll go for way more than this - I wrote a post on rotoprofessor about this earlier in the week) so you're $5 is about the best value you can get.
Not a huge Moustakas fan (low walk, high K, young player) for I still have him at $10, so hang onto him.
I think i'd extend Moustakas, keep Aybar but let this be his final year, Trout, Rodney, Janssen = no brainer, Keep Price until at least the deadline, or until an overwhelming package comes back. Also keep Ramirez. There's 7. Do you have to keep 8, or could you save the $1 and go into the draft with one open roster spot. If you have to keep an 8th, it's Kluber, but...
Hope this helps
