Andrew McCutchen swing
.
Here’s a look at the 2014 Lester’s Legends’ Outfielder Rankings for NL-only fantasy baseball leagues.
.
1. Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates
Andrew McCutchen has been a fantasy force for five seasons, but he has really stepped in up in the past two years, averaging .322 with 102 runs, 26 home runs, 90 RBI and 23.5 stolen bases.
.
2. Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
CarGo has averaged just 129.5 games over the past four seasons, but when he’s playing, he’s highly effective. Over that span, he has hit .311 while averaging 91 runs, 27 home runs, 91 RBI and 21.3 stolen bases.
.
3. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers
Ryan Braun has put up monster numbers throughout his career, but how much of that can be tied to his use of performance-enhancing drugs? He is certainly a risk, but he is capable of delivering big numbers if he proves he’s for real.
.
4. Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals
Bryce Harper has played just 128 games per season in his two years in the bigs. He’s averaging .272, 84.5 runs, 21 home runs, 58.5 RBI and 14.5 runs. He’s still just 21. I expect him to make a leap this year.
.
5. Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee Brewers
Carlos Gomez has hit .273 over the past two years while averaging 76 runs, 21.5 home runs, 62 RBI and 38.5 stolen bases.
.
6. Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins
Giancarlo Stanton is a pure power hitter. In four seasons, he has averaged 29.3 home runs while playing just 122 games per season. Imagine if he stays healthy.
.
7. Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers
Yasiel Puig burst on the season, putting up a .319-66-19-42-11 in 104 games (382 at-bats). He could be even better in his second season.
.
8. Jay Bruce, Cincinnati Reds
Jay Bruce has hit at least 30 home runs in each of the past three seasons while averaging 87.3 runs, 101.7 RBI and eight stolen bases. His only downfall is his .257 lifetime average.
.
9. Matt Holliday, St. Louis Cardinals
Matt Holliday doesn’t excel at any category, but his .300-103-22-94-6 line is evidence that he contributes across the board.
.
10. Justin Upton, Atlanta Braves
Justin Upton got off to an amazing start by slugging 12 home runs in April. He finished with a .263-94-27-70-8 line. He’s just 26 and is capable of doing more.
.
11. Jason Heyward, Atlanta Braves
Jason Heyward was limited to 104 games and a .254-67-14-38-2 line. In 2012, he produced a .269-93-27-82-21 line. He’s only 24 and should have no problem bouncing back.
.
12. Hunter Pence, San Francisco Giants
Hunter Pence has been a consistent force throughout his career, hitting .285 with averages of 80.9 runs, 23.6 home runs, 87.9 RBI and 12.7 stolen bases.
.
13. Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers
Matt Kemp has averaged just 89.5 games over the past two seasons. He will likely miss at least the Dodgers’ opening series, but once he’s healthy, he should be one of the most versatile fantasy options.
.
14. Mark Trumbo, Arizona Diamondbacks
Mark Trumbo will transition to the outfield for the D’backs. He has averaged 31.7 home runs and 94 RBI over the past three seasons. His eligibility at first base gives him added versatility.
.
15. Allen Craig, St. Louis Cardinals
Allen Craig hit .315 with 71 runs, 13 home runs and 97 RBI. He doesn’t provide much power for the position, but he’s hit .311 with 94.5 RBI per season over the past two years. He also has first base eligibility, which adds to his value.

Mike Trout
.
Here’s a look at the 2014 Lester’s Legends’ Outfielder Rankings for AL-only fantasy baseball leagues.
.
1. Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels
Mike Trout regressed a little from his .326-129-30-83-49 line, but his .323-109-27-97-33 line still makes him likely to be the top outfielder taken off the boards in fantasy baseball drafts. He’s just 22 and excels in all aspects of the game.
.
2. Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles
Adam Jones has developed into a terrific all-around player. Over the past three years, he’s averaging a .284-90-30-91-14 line.
.
3. Jacoby Ellsbury, New York Yankees
Jacoby Ellsbury didn’t endear himself to the Boston faithful when he jumped ship to the Yankees. If he can stay healthy, expect a high average, a lot of runs and one of the highest stolen base totals in the league.
.
4. Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays
Despite averaging 105 games over the past two seasons, Jose Bautista has averaged 73 runs, 27.5 home runs, 69 RBI and six stolen bases. You’ll have to live with his .254 lifetime average, but he can provide the power you seek.
.
5.Shin-Soo Choo, Texas Rangers
Shin-Soo Choo produced a solid .285-107-21-54-20 line. It was his third season with at least 20 home runs and stolen bases. The move to Texas should be favorable.
.
6. Alex Rios, Texas Rangers
Alex Rios finished with a .278-83-18-81-42 line. He stole 16 bases in 47 games after coming over to the Rangers from the Chicago White Sox. His OPS also jumped 23 points.
.
7. Wil Myers, Tampa Bay Rays
Wil Myers hit .293 with 50 runs, 13 home runs, 53 RBI and five stolen bases in 88 games en route to being named the 2013 American League Rookie of the Year.
.
8. Alex Gordon, Kansas City Royals
Alex Gordon hit .265 with 90 runs, 20 home runs, 81 RBI and 11 stolen bases. Over the past three years he has hit .287 with averages of 94.7 runs, 19 home runs, 80 RBI and 12.7 stolen bases.
.
9. Carlos Beltran, New York Yankees
Carlos Beltran will turn 37 in April, but has averaged 81 runs, 28 home runs and 90.5 RBI over the past two years. He should put up solid numbers playing home games in Yankee Stadium.
.
10. Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland A’s
Yoenis Cespedes saw his average plunge to .240, but he still managed to hit 26 home runs with 80 RBI. In two seasons he’s averaging 24.5 home runs, 81 RBI and 11.5 stolen bases.
.
11. Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels
Josh Hamilton posted a .250-73-21-79-4 line in his first season with the Angels. In 2012 he sported a .285-103-43-128-7 line. If he can split the differences, which isn’t out of the question, Hamilton would provide big fantasy numbers at a discount.
.
12. Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Rays
Ben Zobrist offers positional versatility, as he is also eligible at second base and shortstop. He posted a .275-77-12-71-11 line. Zobrist doesn’t excel in any one category, but he’s solid across the board.
.
13. Shane Victorino, Boston Red Sox
Shane Victorino hit .294 with 82 runs, 15 home runs, 61 RBI and 21 stolen bases. He is capable of a 15 home run and 30 stolen base season.
.
14. Desmond Jennings, Tampa Bay Rays
Desmond Jennings hit .252 with 82 runs, 14 home runs, 54 RBI and 20 stolen bases. He has 37 home runs and 71 stolen bases over the past three years.
.
15. Nelson Cruz, Baltimore Orioles
Nelson Cruz hit 27 home runs in 109 games before serving a steroid suspension. He has averaged 27 home runs over the past five years. He’s a bit of a risk because that power could have been inflated.

.
2. Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates

.

.

Jason Heyward was limited to 104 games and subsequently a .254-67-14-38-2 line. In 2012 he produced a .269-93-27-82-21 line. He’s on 24 and should have no problem bouncing back.

Here’s the 2013 LestersLegends Outfielder Rankings for NL-Only Leagues.
.
1. Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers
Kemp was limited to 106 games, but still managed to produce a .303-74-23-69-9 line. At 28 he’s in the midst of his prime and could easily be the top outfielder.
.
2. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers
Braun didn’t let the PED rumors affect him with his .319-108-41-112-30 line. He has the goods to be a five-category stud again.
.
3. Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates
McCutchen took the next step by adding power to his arsenal. His .327-107-31-96-20. He’s truly a five-category stud now.
.
4. Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
CarGo also produces in all five categories. Last year he posted a .303-89-22-85-20 line in 135 games. He has never played more than 145 games though, which keeps him out of my top four spots.
.
5. Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins
Stanton has power for days too. He’s only 23 and he’s averaged 31 home runs in his three seasons. He should move into 40-HR territory this year. Fifty bombs isn’t out of the question.
.
6. Matt Holliday, St. Louis Cardinals
Holliday did not suffer from Albert Pujols’ departure. All he did was post a .295-95-27-102-4 line. He puts up a similar line every year.
.
7. Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals
Harper was a little overlooked because of the season than Mike Trout had, but his .270-98-22-59-18 season was a good starting point. Harper was just 19 last year.
.
8. Justin Upton, Atlanta Braves
Upton has a new home. He’s a five-category performer and while he doesn’t dominate in any category, he’s solid across the board.
.
9. Jay Bruce, Cincinnati Reds
Bruce has averaged a .254-87-33-98-9 line over the past two seasons. He’ll turn 26 in April. He could also reach the 40-HR club.
.
10. Jason Heyward, Atlanta Braves
Heyward bounced back from a soft 2011 season with a .269-93-27-82-21 line. At 23 there is plenty of room for growth.
.
11. Shin-Soo Choo, Cincinnati Reds
Choo is a solid contributor in all five 5×5 categories. His move to Cincinnati should be beneficial.
.
12. B.J. Upton, Atlanta Braves
You’ll have to live with Upton’s .255 lifetime average, but he’s a solid producer in runs, home runs and RBI. Where he really leaves his mark is in the stolen base category. He’s averaged 39 over the past five seasons.
.
13. Norichika Aoki, Milwaukee Brewers
Aoki posted a solid .288-79-10-50-30 line last year. His main contribution comes in stolen bases, but he should hit for average and score a healthy amount of runs.
.
14. Hunter Pence, San Francisco Giants
Pence has combined for 13 stolen bases the past two seasons after swiping double-digit bags in his first four seasons. That hurts his value. He his hit 20 or more home runs the past four seasons, but could struggle to reach that mark this year. His OPS was .671 after coming over from the Philadelphia Phillies.
.
15. Carlos Beltran, St. Louis Cardinals
Beltran played over his head posting a .269-83-32-97-13 line. His OPS was .924 before the All-Star Break and .742 after. He’s still a solid third outfielder, but don’t expect a repeat of the power numbers.
.
16. Andre Ethier, Los Angeles Dodgers
Ethier bounced back with a .284-79-20-89-2 line after hitting just 11 home runs in 2011. He won’t return to his 2009 numbers, but he should match last year’s production.
.
17. Michael Cuddyer, Colorado Rockies
Cuddy was limited to 101 games, but still managed to score 53 runs, hit 16 home runs, drive in 58 runs and steal eight bases. Assuming he can stay healthy, he should put up much better numbers this year.
.
18. Jayson Werth, Washington Nationals
Werth is coming off a broken wrist, which makes him a risk. His power was already on the decline. I would target somebody else unless he slides in your draft.
.
19. Allen Craig, St. Louis Cardinals
Craig posted a solid .307-76-22-92-2 line last year. He has injury history, but he’s valuable because he also has first base eligibility.
.
20. Martin Prado, Arizona Diamondbacks
Prado can be used at either third base or in the outfield slot. He tends to provide a quality average along with decent run and RBI totals.
.
21. Carl Crawford, Los Angeles Dodgers
He’s an injury risk and won’t be ready to start the season. If he can stay healthy, he has big time potential.
.
22. Angel Pagan, San Francisco Giants
Pagan is a three category (batting average, runs, stolen bases) contributor. He’s a solid number two NL-Only outfielder.
.
23. Cameron Maybin, San Diego Padres
If Maybin could improve his lifetime .314 on-base percentage, he’d improve his counting numbers. He remains a quality stolen base contributor.
.
24. Jason Kubel, Arizona Diamondbacks
Kubel offers help in your home run and RBI categories. He has averaged 22.2 home runs and 84.2 RBI over the past five years.
.
25. Ben Revere, Philadelphia Phillies
Revere swiped 40 bases last year and 34 in 2011. He doesn’t offer much elsewhere.
.

Mike Trout
.
Here’s the 2013 LestersLegends Outfielder Rankings for AL-Only Leagues.
.
1. Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels
Trout was the MVP in a lot of people’s eyes even during Miguel Cabrera’s Triple Crown. His .326-129-30-83-49 season was historic, especially when you consider he wasn’t called up until the end of April. The sky is the limit for Trout.
.
2. Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels
Hamilton has a new home, but his offense should be just as potent. If he can stay healthy, he’ll be a four-category stud.
.
 3. Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays
Bautista was limited to 92 games last year, but he still managed 27 home runs. He brings big-time power to the table.
.
4. Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Red Sox
Ellsbury was limited to 74 games last year and his numbers really suffered. He’s a bit of a risk, but in 2011 his numbers resembled Trout’s last year.
.
5. Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles
Jones took another step forward in the power department, smacking 32 round-trippers. He finished with a .287-103-32-82-16 line.
.
6. Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland A’s
Cespedes was able to handle the transition to MLB pitching with a .292-70-23-82-16 line in 129 games. He should be even better in his second year in America.
.
7. Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Rays
I love Zobrist for his versatility. I’d likely use him at second base or shortstop before plugging him into my outfield. That said, he has averaged 88.8 runs, 19.3 HRs, 82.8 RBI and 18.5 stolen bases over the past four years.
.
8. Desmond Jennings, Tampa Bay Rays
Jennings came into 2012 with a lot of hype, but other than runs (85) and stolen bases (31), he was pretty nondescript. He has the tools to add to both power and speed categories.
.
9. Alex Rios , Chicago White Sox
Rios bounced back from a hideous 2011 campaign with a .304-93-25-91-23 line. He seems to fluctuate more than other high-end outfielders so he’s a bit of a risk, but when he’s on, he’s a five-category contributor.
.
10. Austin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
Jackson bounced back with a .300 average after hitting .249 in 2011. He has scored at least 90 runs in his three seasons, twice reaching 103 runs. His home run total has increased every year and he’s better than the 12 stolen bases last year indicate. He has a decent shot of producing a 20-20 season. He could easily be a top 15 outfielder.
.
11. Michael Bourn, Cleveland Indians
Bourn is a guy to target if you’re going after the stolen base category. He’s a career .272 hitter so he’s not an asset (or liability) in that category. He should be a solid runs contributor, but don’t expect help in the power categories.
.
12. Alex Gordon, Kansas City Royals
Gordon took a step back last year, but there was still plenty to be pleased with his .294-93-14-72-10 line. He’s a solid contributor in all five 5×5 categories.
.
13. Mark Trumbo, Los Angeles Angels
Trumbo has 61 home runs over the past two seasons. He doesn’t score many runs or hit for average, but he should provide plenty of power, especially in that offense.
.
14. Curtis Granderson, New York Yankees
Granderson’s broken arm drops him out of the top 10, but he’s still a solid second outfielder. He has 84 home runs over the past two seasons, and while he wont’ reach the 40-HR mark a third straight season, he should flirt with 30.
.
15. Melky Cabrera, Toronto Blue Jays
Cabrera is a bit of a wildcard coming off his suspension, but he landed in a good place.
.
16. Shane Victorino, Boston Red Sox
Victorino’s move to Boston should be a good one. He figures to score a lot of runs and steal a bunch of bases. He should be decent in the home run and batting average categories.
.
17. Josh Willingham, Minnesota Twins
Willingham has plenty of power. He smacked 35 home runs with 110 RBI last year. While I don’t expect him to repeat that production, he should hit close to 30 bombs with 100 RBI.
.
18. Nelson Cruz, Texas Rangers
Cruz was finally able to stay healthy, but his numbers declined as he posted a .260-86-24-90-8 line. He should bounce back, but he’s an injury risk.
.
19. Ichiro Suzuki, New York Yankees
Ichiro got a jolt from being shipped to the Yankees. He should continue to provide a solid batting average, run total and stolen base total.
.
20. Nick Markakis, Baltimore Orioles
Markakis has not reached 80 runs, 16 home runs, or 75 RBI since 2009. He hits for average (.295 career hitter), but does not stand out anywhere else.
.
21. Michael Morse, Seattle Mariners
Morse’s return to Seattle doesn’t bode well for his fantasy numbers, despite the improved dimensions of Safeco Field. He has power potential, but he has only reach 500 at bats one time in his career.
.
22. Colby Rasmus, Toronto Blue Jays
Rasmus has power, but he is a batting average liability, which minimizes his run and RBI appeal.
.
23. Alejandro De Aza, Chicago White Sox
De Aza’s main contribution will come in the stolen bases category. He should provide a decent batting average and run total as well.
.
 24. Nick Swisher, Cleveland Indians
Swisher has quietly averaged 25.9 home runs over the past eight seasons.
.
 25. Torii Hunter, Detroit Tigers
Hunter is a solid contributor in all five categories.
.

We already looked at the LestersLegends’ top 20 fantasy baseball outfielders for 2013, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t additional options if you choose to wait on filling your outfield slots to address other positions.
.
Norichika Aoki, Milwaukee Brewers
Aoki posted a solid .288-79-10-50-30 line last year. His main contribution comes in stolen bases, but he should hit for average and score a healthy amount of runs.
.
Carlos Beltran, St. Louis Cardinals
Beltran played over his head posting a .269-83-32-97-13 line. His OPS was .924 before the All-Star Break and .742 after. He’s still a solid third outfielder, but don’t expect a repeat of the power numbers.
.
Michael Bourn, Cleveland Indians
Bourn is a guy to target if you’re going after the stolen base category. He’s a career .272 hitter so he’s not an asset in that category. He should be a solid runs contributor, but don’t expect help in the power categories.
.
Nelson Cruz, Texas Rangers
Cruz was finally able to stay healthy, but his numbers declined as he posted a .260-86-24-90-8 line. He is a bit of a risk as his name was linked to the Miami anti-aging clinic.
.
Michael Cuddyer, Colorado Rockies
Cuddy was limited to 101 games, but still managed to score 53 runs, hit 16 home runs, drive in 58 runs and steal eight bases. Assuming he can stay healthy, he should put up much better numbers this year.
.
Andre Ethier, Los Angeles Dodgers
Ethier bounced back with a .284-79-20-89-2 line after hitting just 11 home runs in 2011. He won’t return to his 2009 numbers, but he should match last year’s production.
.
Alex Gordon, Kansas City Royals
Gordon took a step back last year, but there was still plenty to be pleased with his .294-93-14-72-10 line. He’s a solid contributor in all five 5×5 categories and a solid second outfielder.
.
Curtis Granderson, New York Yankees
Granderson’s broken arm drops him out of the top 20, but he’s still a solid second outfielder. He has 84 home runs over the past two seasons, and while he wont’ reach the 40-HR mark a third straight season, he should flirt with 30.
.
Austin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
Jackson bounced back with a .300 average after hitting .249 in 2011. He has scored at least 90 runs in his three seasons, twice reaching 103 runs. His home run total has increased every year and he’s better than the 12 stolen bases last year indicate. He has a decent shot of producing a 20-20 season. He could easily be a top 15 outfielder.
.
Michael Morse, Seattle Mariners
Morse’s return to Seattle doesn’t bode well for his fantasy numbers, despite the improved dimensions of Safeco Field. He has power potential, but he has only reach 500 at bats one time in his career.
.
Nick Markakis, Baltimore Orioles
Markakis has not reached 80 runs, 16 home runs, or 75 RBI since 2009. He hits for average (.295 career hitter), but does not stand out anywhere else.
.
Hunter Pence, San Francisco Giants
Pence has combined for 13 stolen bases the past two seasons after swiping double-digit bags in his first four seasons. That hurts his value. He his hit 20 or more home runs the past four seasons, but could struggle to reach that mark this year. His OPS was .671 after coming over from the Philadelphia Phillies. He’s a better option than Markakis, but he will not likely be as productive as he’s been in the past.
.
Colby Rasmus, Toronto Blue Jays
Rasmus has power, but he is a batting average liability, which minimizes his run and RBI appeal.
.
Ichiro Suzuki, New York Yankees
Ichiro got a jolt from being shipped to the Yankees. He should continue to provide a solid batting average, run total and stolen base total.
.
Mark Trumbo, Los Angeles Angels
Trumbo has 61 home runs over the past two seasons. He doesn’t score many runs or hit for average, but he should provide plenty of power, especially in that offense.
.
B.J. Upton, Atlanta Braves
You’ll have to live with Upton’s .255 lifetime average, but he’s a solid producer in runs, home runs and RBI. Where he really leaves his mark is in the stolen base category. He’s averaged 39 over the past five seasons.
.
Shane Victorino, Boston Red Sox
Victorino’s move to Boston should be a good one. He figures to score a lot of runs and steal a bunch of bases. He should be decent in the home run and batting average categories.
.
Jayson Werth, Washington Nationals
Werth is coming off a broken wrist, which makes him a risk. His power was already on the decline. I would target somebody else unless he slides in your draft.
.
Josh Willingham, Minnesota Twins
Willingham has plenty of power. He smacked 35 home runs with 110 RBI last year. While I don’t expect him to repeat that production, he should hit close to 30 bombs with 100 RBI.

Here’s an updated look at the 2013 LestersLegends Outfielder Rankings.
.
1. Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers 
Kemp was limited to 106 games, but still managed to produce a .303-74-23-69-9 line. At 28 he’s in the midst of his prime and could easily be the top outfielder.
.
2. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers
Braun didn’t let the PED rumors affect him with his .319-108-41-112-30 line. Of course, he has to deal with them again. He has the goods to be a five-category stud again, but I’m a little concerned
.
3. Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels
Trout was the MVP in a lot of people’s eyes even during Miguel Cabrera’s Triple Crown. His .326-129-30-83-49 season was historic, especially when you consider he wasn’t called up until the end of April. The sky is the limit for Trout. I initially had him ranked number one, but his weight gain gives me a little pause for concern. He could hit more home runs, but I’m afraid his stolen base total takes a hit.
.
4. Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates
McCutchen took the next step by adding power to his arsenal. His .327-107-31-96-20. He’s truly a five-category stud now.
.
5. Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
CarGo also produces in all five categories. Last year he posted a .303-89-22-85-20 line in 135 games. He has never played more than 145 games though, which keeps him out of my top four spots.
.
6. Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels
Hamilton has a new home, but his offense should be just as potent. If he can stay healthy, he’ll be a four-category stud.
.
7. Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays
Bautista was limited to 92 games last year, but he still managed 27 home runs. He brings big-time power to the table.
.
8. Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins
Stanton has power for days too. He’s only 23 and he’s averaged 31 home runs in his three seasons. He should move into 40-HR territory this year. Fifty bombs isn’t out of the question.
.
9. Matt Holliday, St. Louis Cardinals
Holliday did not suffer from Albert Pujols’ departure. All he did was post a .295-95-27-102-4 line. He puts up a similar line every year.
.
10. Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals
Harper was a little overlooked because of the season than Trout had, but his .270-98-22-59-18 season was a good starting point. Harper was just 19 last year.
.
11. Justin Upton, Atlanta Braves
Upton has a new home. He’s a five-category performer and while he doesn’t dominate in any category, he’s solid across the board.
.
12. Jay Bruce, Cincinnati Reds
Bruce has averaged a .254-87-33-98-9 line over the past two seasons. He’ll turn 26 in April. He could also reach the 40-HR club.
.
13. Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Red Sox
Ellsbury was limited to 74 games last year and his numbers really suffered. He’s a bit of a risk, but in 2011 his numbers resembled Trout’s last year.
.
14. Jason Heyward, Atlanta Braves
Heyward bounced back from a soft 2011 season with a .269-93-27-82-21 line. At 23 there is plenty of room for growth.
.
15. Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles
Jones took another step forward in the power department, smacking 32 round-trippers. He finished with a .287-103-32-82-16 line.
.
16. Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland A’s
Cespedes was able to handle the transition to MLB pitching with a .292-70-23-82-16 line in 129 games. He should be even better in his second year in America.
.
17. Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Rays
I love Zobrist for his versatility. I’d likely use him at second base or shortstop before plugging him into my outfield. That said, he has averaged 88.8 runs, 19.3 HRs, 82.8 RBI and 18.5 stolen bases over the past four years.
.
18. Desmond Jennings, Tampa Bay Rays
Jennings came into 2012 with a lot of hype, but other than runs (85) and stolen bases (31), he was pretty nondescript. He has the tools to add to both power and speed categories.
.
19. Alex Rios , Chicago White Sox
Rios bounced back from a hideous 2011 campaign with a .304-93-25-91-23 line. He seems to fluctuate more than other high-end outfielders so he’s a bit of a risk, but when he’s on, he’s a five-category contributor.
.
20. Shin-Soo Choo, Cincinnati Reds
Choo is a solid contributor in all five 5×5 categories. His move to Cincinnati should be beneficial.
