Notes 
 Sano tested positive for COVID-19, though he's asymptomatic. There have been few updates since his test in early July, and it's certainly possible that he'll return healthy before the start of the regular season. For now, drop him down your draft board a hair, but don't shy away entirely.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Don't count on the home run production to repeat. Gurriel is a nice mid-round average source, but he may just be empty average and that's it.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Looking just at the on-the-field perspective, SanĂ³ could lead the league in homers and no one would blink an eye. Moving to first base helps him in the short and long term, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gurriel was unbelievable last season going from 13 homers and 85 RBIs to 31 and 104. Even with the power spike, he maintained his .290 BA for the third straight season. Although he is older, it is clear that fantasy owners can still rely on him for plenty of production.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Sano missed over 50 games but still hit 34 homers and drove in 79 runs. With a full season, 50/110/110 is a real possibility but let's not pretend that he hasn't let fantasy owners down a number of times so there is most definitely some risk as well.
