Notes 
 Yadi isn't likely to knock 20 homers again at this point in his career, but he is a safe source of batting average and also provides a handful of steals every year as well. While he is healthy, batting in the middle of the lineup should provide plenty of RBIs and runs for fantasy owners too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Murphy was quietly exceptional for the Mariners in just 260 at-bats, knocking 18 homers with 40 RBIs and a .269 BA. Now that Narvaez is out of his way and in Milwaukee, Murphy should add 200 trips to the plate and could approach 25 or perhaps even 30 homers for fantasy owners.
