Notes 
 Kike landed in a pretty great spot in Boston as he should see close to everyday playing time batting at the top of the order. He has always been a solid producer when given the chance to play, so I am excited to see how he performs now that he has a starting spot all to himself for the first time. Potential for solid runs, 20+ HRs and a handful of SBs very late in drafts. He is being undervalued.
