Notes 
 Barnhart doesn't have the best bat, but his elite defense will keep him on the field for nearly 500 at-bats again. In a killer Red's lineup, that should be plenty to get him the counting stats he needs to be draftable.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Gregorius should be plenty useful with power and batting average when he returns, but it likely won't be until after the all-star break, so unless you have plenty of DL spots available, he is better left undrafted in standard-sized leagues.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Gregorius finished as a top-seven fantasy shortstop in standard 5x5 leagues last year despite missing a few weeks due to a heel injury. A more significant elbow injury followed during the playoffs, and Gregorius is now expected to miss the first half of the season following Tommy John surgery. The procedure isn't a huge long-term concern for a position player, but whether he is worth drafting comes down to your number of bench spots and DL spots -- not to mention the other shortstop(s) on your roster. He's fully capable of producing 10-15 HRs with a decent batting average and good run production in the second half of the season.
