Notes 
 Santana will play regularly for the Rangers, but it's hard to buy into the production that he had in 2019.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
DeJong was a bit of a mirage in the first few months of the season, as he looked liked he found out how to strikeout less and make better contact. He's still a fine option, but better as a middle infielder.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Although DeJong hit so poorly at the end of the season, he has no chance of losing playing time because he is so great in the field. Even with his rough stretch to close things, DeJong finished with 30 homers and 97 runs. He is expected to do much of the same this year.
