Notes 
 We've seen Posey's power numbers slowly drop over each of the last four seasons but last year the batting average finally plummeted too. There isn't much upside here but at the very least, you know he will play almost every day.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Murphy was quietly exceptional for the Mariners in just 260 at-bats, knocking 18 homers with 40 RBIs and a .269 BA. Now that Narvaez is out of his way and in Milwaukee, Murphy should add 200 trips to the plate and could approach 25 or perhaps even 30 homers for fantasy owners.
