 Javier Baez went 2-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Mariners.

Notes 
 The shortstop position is so loaded that Baez' 29 homers, 11 steals and .281 batting average didn't even get him into the top 12 at the position last year. He is still well worth a third or fourth round pick, however, because the bat and speed are both reliable.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Blackmon had a rough spot in the season but still finished with 30+ homers, 110+ runs and a batting average north of .310. He is getting older and only stole 2 bags compared to the 43 fantasy owners got in 2015, but this still a great bat in the late third round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 I love the skill set while I hate that the Cubs only attempted 69 stolen base attempts in 2019 - 2nd least in all of baseball. Baez would be a top 10 pick if not for the Cubs refusal to run. That reality drops Baez down. 2019 wasn't a down year, it was a reflection of the Cubs approach to scoring runs by refusing to run.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Perennially underrated, but his ADP makes sense due to his complete drop in SBs. Only stole 2 bags in 2019 after stealing double digits every year prior. This means you have to buy Blackmon with no help at SBs, which has never been the case. Also may take a hit in runs if Arenado does get traded.
