Notes 
 There are a lot of red flags around how legitimate Escobar's production was the past couple of years. In a dynasty, I'm selling, and in a redraft, I'm looking elsewhere for a starter.
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
 Escobar had a heck of a breakout season, driving in 118 RBIs thanks to 35 homers. The batting average will never be great but he certainly won't hurt you in that category. What's more, is that he'll qualify for 2B and 3B so that you can slide him around during the week.
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.
