Notes 
 Mercado is a popular breakout pick, and even in a shortened season, he offers 12/12 potential.
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
 Mercado impressed as a rookie, hitting 15 homers, stealing 15 bags and scoring 70 runs in just 115 games. His production slowed at the end of the year, though, and the overall batting average will likely dip so don't expect the same useful pace for all of 2020.
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.
