Notes 
 Kepler finally tapped into his potential last season after showing signs of it in 2018. There's nothing really, from an underlying or surface level, that says it was flukey.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Santana will play regularly for the Rangers, but it's hard to buy into the production that he had in 2019.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Most seem to recall Kepler knocking 36 homers but did you realize he did it while missing 30 games. The batting average will almost definitely be under .260 but if he plays the full season, you can bet on 90+ runs and 90+ RBIs this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Santana's breakout season was absolutely ridiculous on paper. He finished with 28 homers, 21 steals, a .283 BA and 80+ RBIs and runs in just 474 at-bats. He may not be as efficient this season but even if he takes a step back, he would be a steal in the 13th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Hit 36 homers in 2019 without striking out too much. Does that signal room for even more upside?
