Notes 
 Santana had some of the worst BABIP luck in baseball last year so you can expect his batting average to jump back into the .250s this year to go with his usual 20+ homers and 80+ runs. That makes him a quality late-round corner infielder as always.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Now that Cabrera is with the Rangers and expected to play every day, we can feel comfortable grabbing him late in drafts as a reliable source of power to go with a decent batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 A smooth selection (sorry) for OBP managers, Santana batted .229 after back-to-back .259 campaigns. He actually slashed his strikeout rate (13.7%) for the fourth straight season with a gaudy 16.2% walk rate. Having exceeded 600 plate appearances in each of the last eight seasons, he's an excellent compiler who could again broach 80 runs and RBI apiece with around 25 home runs. That will make him a sharp corner infielder if his batting average repairs closer to his career .247 mark, which matches last season's xBA on Statcast. He added third-base eligibility (19 games) in some leagues and could gain outfield during the season.
