Notes 
 With LeMahieu now away from Coors, you can't expect him to hit .348 again, or even .300. His stolen bases have essentially disappeared over the past few seasons and we aren't likely to get double-digit homers either. At this point, LeMahieu is a replacement level fantasy asset.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
On a 162-game pace, Gurriel was a 27 homer hitter with a .281 batting average and 87 RBIs. He may not keep up that pace with a full season's worth of at bats, but you can argue that is his upside which would make for an exceptional value late in drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 The Yankees signed LeMahieu to fill a super-utility role, but why would anyone with a working memory expect Troy Tulowitzki to stay healthy and succeed? Although he won't contend for another batting title away from Coors, the second baseman showed more power with a career-high 15 homers last year. His spray chart overlay actually showed more batted balls that would have cleared Yankee Stadium's miniature fences, so the 30-year-old can make a sneaky bargain for those completely writing off someone leaving Colorado without a locked-in everyday spot.
