Can Any AL Player Match The Future Value Of Matt Wieters?

A slight break from the daily MLB trade rumors to ask about a pure fantasy baseball issue.

What is the fantasy equivalent in a $260 cap AL-Only 4x4 keeper league for a $39 Alex Rodriguez would can be protected at that salary in 2010 and 2011 with the option of raising him $5 in 2011 to keep him at $44 in 2011 and 2012?  I was asked for a $5 Matt Wieters who can be kept in 2011 and 2012 at $10 with the $5 signing occurring in 2012 for a $15 Wieters in 2012 and 2013.

Because 1st place is out of reach (23 point lead), I am not inclined to deal Wieters for ARod.  However, I am curious who would be the equivalent of Matt Wieters in an AL-only 4x4 format who could fetch ARod - if the team offering ARod was firm on the price being Wieters.
