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
Wong has had an up-and-down career so far, which has seemingly come year-to-year. He's guaranteed playing time thanks to his defense, at the very least.
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
Don't look now, but Wong was actually great last year, hitting .285 with 24 steals and a dozen homers. While he hasn't exactly been consistent in his career, repeating those type of numbers would make him a downright steal late in drafts.
