Notes 
 Gurriel has been a streaky player so far in his career, but he seems to be in Toronto's long-term plans. The positional flexibility helps, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's hard to trust a Ray who isn't named Meadows, but the Rays seem intent to make Lowe their everyday second baseman this year. He has added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After starting the season slow, Toronto sent Gurriel back to the minors but once he was called back up, he was one of the best hitters in baseball with a nearly 50-homer pace. That won't keep up, but 35 with a strong batting average is entirely possible.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Lowe didn't have a high prospect pedigree nor did he perform in his rookie debut but he blew up last year for the Rays, hitting 17 homers and driving in 51 runs in just 296 at-bats. Don't be surprised if that grows to 25 and 10 with a solid batting average over a full year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  If Lowe stays healthy and builds off his 2019, he has a shot to drastically outplay his ADP. There are significant question marks, however, as he has injury concerns and struck out in 34% of his at bats.
