Notes 
 Cano isn't nearly the player he once was, but he's proven over the last several seasons that he is still fully capable of hitting 20-25 HRs with a batting average north of .280. He is 36 years old and coming off of a PED suspension, so the risk for a collapse exists, but it's worth noting that he was actually better following the suspension last season. The move from Seattle to the Mets should be fairly neutral in terms of both ballpark and lineup.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
After back-to-back 30 HR campaigns, Odor managed to hit just 18 in 129 games last year, but there is little in his batted ball profile to suggest the power drop-off will be permanent. Of greater concern is the fact that Odor's strikeout rate has increased significantly over the last two seasons, and his stolen base success rate plummeted last season. Odor is certainly capable of producing a .250-30-15 season, but that outcome feels a little closer to his ceiling than his floor at this point. Still, unless he gets the red light on the base paths, Odor is a solid bet to again finish among the top-12 second basemen in standard 5x5 leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Cano may be old, but he has not shown any signs of slowing down. In last year's shortened season, his production was still exceptional with a 20 HR, 100 RBI, .303 BA pace. Not only that, but he may be the game's most durable player so don't hesitate to add him prior to his ADP just to make sure no one beats you to the punch.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Despite fewer games over the last three years, Odor has 10 more homers than Javier Baez and is neck and neck with him in steals, runs and RBIs. There is a considerable difference in BA, but in terms of batted ball data, Baez was hardly above Odor in xBA last season so you may be getting a tremendous value in the 9th or 10th round of drafts this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Cano still has plenty left in the reserve. In a season sliced in half because of an 80-game PED suspension, the veteran second baseman batted .303/.374/.471 with 10 homers. While the elite power has dissipated, with 2016's 39 homers now looking like a clear outlier among recent returns, he has settled into a stable source of 20 long balls with a high average. Having earned his highest hard-hit rate and exit velocity over the last four seasons, Cano corralled the sixth-highest xBA (.305) of all MLB hitters with 250 plate appearances. He's a steady contributor going at a bargain because of old age.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Odor settled for 18 homers in 129 games after offering 33 and 30 long balls in the last two seasons, respectively. Yet he made demonstrative improvements as an actual player, upping his wOBA from .272 to .325 and fWAR from -1.2 to 2.5. A more selective approach led to a career-high 8.0% walk rate and a respectable .253 batting average. He should at least rebound closer to 25 homers, but there's some concern that Texas throws up a red (or at least yellow) light after getting caught in half of his 24 steals attempts. He's still only 25, so it's worth the gamble beyond the top-100 picks if searching for a power-speed punch.
