Notes 
 Gurriel has been a streaky player so far in his career, but he seems to be in Toronto's long-term plans. The positional flexibility helps, too.
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
 After starting the season slow, Toronto sent Gurriel back to the minors but once he was called back up, he was one of the best hitters in baseball with a nearly 50-homer pace. That won't keep up, but 35 with a strong batting average is entirely possible.
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.
