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
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
 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
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.
