Notes 
 Gurriel has been a streaky player so far in his career, but he seems to be in Toronto's long-term plans. The positional flexibility helps, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Josh Reddick can't stand in the way forever. Let's see how Dusty Baker handles Tucker this year. He has five-category upside if he can ever play every day.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After starting the season slow, Toronto sent Gurriel back to the minors but once he was called back up, he was one of the best hitters in baseball with a nearly 50-homer pace. That won't keep up, but 35 with a strong batting average is entirely possible.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Tucker hasn't lived up to the hype in his first 130 big league at-bats but don't sour on him quite yet. This is a legitimate five-category asset who could go 40/25 HR/SB with a .280 batting average within the next few years. It is tough to tell how quickly it will come but he has to get playing time first.
