Notes 
 In OBP leagues, he's a Top 50 player. It's hard to expect a repeat of a .281 average from Santana in his 34-year-old season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Don't count on the home run production to repeat. Gurriel is a nice mid-round average source, but he may just be empty average and that's it.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After a lousy 2018, it seemed Santana's bat had finally hit the end of career wall, but he bounced back to a tune of 34 homers, 110 runs and saw his batting average soar from .229 to .281. All are expected to regress in 2019, but not enough to make him worth passing on in the 12th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Gurriel was unbelievable last season going from 13 homers and 85 RBIs to 31 and 104. Even with the power spike, he maintained his .290 BA for the third straight season. Although he is older, it is clear that fantasy owners can still rely on him for plenty of production.
