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
Maybe it's the age, but I'm blaming his 2019 on injuries. He was just too good in 2018 not to give him a second chance this year.
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
If you get into the 14th round and need either steals or batting average, Cain will make for an excellent investment. He should again steal 15-20 bags and you can expect the batting average to jump back up closer to that .300 mark he sat at for 4 of the past 6 seasons.
