Andrus vs Moustakas trade advice

I'm in a 5x5 dynasty league with contracts.

I have an offer of:

Andrus ($5, 3 years left), Ziegler ($2, 2 years left), and an early 5th round rookie draft pick.

FOR

Moustakas (prospect), a late 1st round rookie draft pick, and a late 2nd round rookie draft pick.

On the one hand, Moustakas has alot of upside and I'm still a little unsure if Ziegler can get 10 saves this coming season with Devine breathing down his neck.  And, I'd hate to lose out on a guy like Justin Smoak by trading away that 1st round pick.

That being said, Andrus is going to start and steal bases.  Ziegler is looking to have a value of $17 and I would get him at $2.  And, I was thinking of loading up on arms in this rookie draft anyway and passing on Smoak to get Hellickson and then maybe Matusz...who will probably both be available in later rounds.

If I made the deal, I'd be dropping a $1 Collaspo (2 years left) and a $1 Bannister (final year) to plug Andrus and Ziegler into my line-up.  I have to think it would be an upgrade.  And I might be able to trade for a 1st elsewhere before the roster freeze.  The real difficulty is letting go of Moustakas...
