Half My Damn Team is on the DL

Well, not literally, but a pretty significant part of it is. It's starting to get to the point where I'm going to have to make some tough decisions here if I want to remain competitive in my league (I've already fallen to 11th out of 12 teams). Not TOO concerned since this is still the 3rd week of the season, but as you can see below I'm facing some serious problems as far as the amount of players I have on the DL.

My lineup is as follows:

C - Brian McCann

1B - Mark Trumbo

2B - Brandon Phillips

3B - Mike Moustakas

SS - Alexi Ramirez

OF - Justin Upton, Adam Jones, Brennan Boesch

Util - Matt Joyce, Michael Morse (DL)

DL Spot - Carl Crawford

Pitching:

SP - Clayton Kershaw, Kyle Lohse, Mark Buehrle, Felix Hernandez, Danny Duffy, Max Scherzer, Ervin Santana, Daniel Hudson (DL), Doug Fister (DL)

RP - Huston Street, Alfredo Aceves, Santiago Casilla, Drew Storen (DL)

Part of me feels like I should just tough it out until these guys come back, however Morse is supposed to be out until late June/early July (I think), Crawford is hopefully coming back soon as long as his elbow doesn't act up again, Hudson is supposed to miss at least 2 starts, no timetable yet on Doug Fister, and Storen is out until the All Star break at the earliest. Taking all this into consideration, I'm leaning more towards dropping at least a couple of these guys (probably Storen and Fister) so I at least have the hope of remaining competitive. Thoughts?

Also, it looks as though someone just dropped Hiroki Kuroda so I was thinking about picking him up as a replacement for Fister.
