News 
  Evan Longoria has been traded to the Giants for Denard Span, Christian Arroyo, Matt Krook, and Stephen Woods. Giants' home stadium, AT&T, is the worst park for HRs in the major leagues. That said, Longoria is coming off a 20 HR season that was preceded by a 36 HR campaign in 2016. Right-handed hitters are much more effective than lefties, so 20 HRs is certainly reachable again and perhaps even surpassed.

Notes 
 While EE may be old, he's still got it. He has now swatted 34 or more homers with 98+ RBI in six consecutive seasons. He plays nearly every day and won't kill you in batting average either.

 Encarnacion got off to a very rough start with the Indians, but in the end, he wound up with his standard stat line. He hit at least 34 home runs and tallied 98 RBI for the sixth consecutive season, his strikeout rate remained constant, and he actually set a career-high in walk rate (15.5%). In the end, there's little to suggest a decline is imminent, even as Encarnacion enters his age-35 season. With enough appearances at first base to retain eligibility at the position, Encarnacion can and should once again be valued as a strong fantasy option.
