Notes 
 Santana will play regularly for the Rangers, but it's hard to buy into the production that he had in 2019.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Josh Reddick can't stand in the way forever. Let's see how Dusty Baker handles Tucker this year. He has five-category upside if he can ever play every day.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Santana's breakout season was absolutely ridiculous on paper. He finished with 28 homers, 21 steals, a .283 BA and 80+ RBIs and runs in just 474 at-bats. He may not be as efficient this season but even if he takes a step back, he would be a steal in the 13th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Tucker hasn't lived up to the hype in his first 130 big league at-bats but don't sour on him quite yet. This is a legitimate five-category asset who could go 40/25 HR/SB with a .280 batting average within the next few years. It is tough to tell how quickly it will come but he has to get playing time first.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Went .269/.319/.537 with four homers and five steals in 72 September plate appearances
