    Masahiro Tanaka trade - Dynasty

    I'm in a 20-team dynasty league, H2H points. We have active 25 man rosters, minors of up to 22, and salary cap of $165MM.

    Get: Masahiro Tanaka ($1MM), $1.1MM cash
    Give: Sonny Gray ($2MM), Trevor Bauer ($1.1MM), a second round draft pick

    Under our rules, Tanaka is eligible for our amateur draft, which means he'll get the slot contract of $1 million. He can be given a contract of up to 5 years. Gray and Bauer can also be extended for up to 5 years.

    Should I make this trade? Tanaka is an unknown quantity until he actually pitches in MLB, but most evaluators are saying he's going to be a #2 or #3 guy right away, though he's not without his red flags. CBS released their '14 projections, and they have Gray ranked at #75 overall, almost on the same level as Doug Fister (#70), who I also own. CBS also predicts Gray to have nearly the same number of points as Fister next year based on our league's points model. It's a tough call, I'm having a difficult time deciding. Thanks for any input.
