Fantasy Impact: Melky Cabrera would presumably slot into the two-hole for the Seattle Mariners. Cabrera is an all-around fantasy contributor, with a strong ability to make contact and hit for average, mixed with slightly above-average power. A full repeat of his 2014 batting line is well within reach. A potential move from The Roger Centre to Safeco Field could worry some, however, Melky did not display any split between home and away performance in 2014 (.807 OPS at home - .810 OPS on the road). With the recent addition of free-agent Nelson Cruz, along with last year's acquisitions, Austin Jackson and Robinson Cano, the top of the Mariner's lineup would be one of the best in the American League.

Not usually a player who's actively targeted on draft day, Melky Cabrera always seems to fly under the radar as one of fantasy's most consistent starting outfielders.
