Notes 
 Gurriel isn't going to mash 25 homers like many of the others going in his late-round range, but he is a sure-bet to boost your batting average which is difficult to find as the draft comes to a close.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Senzel can't catch a break. Shortly after getting optioned to Triple-A, he suffered a sprained ankle that will sideline him for a few weeks to start the season. That derails his chances of replacing the injured Scooter Gennett (groin) at second base. Most scouts believe the 23-year-old can make an immediate mark, but injuries and a crowded Reds lineup could continue to delay his anticipated debut. The latest setback makes it tougher to stash him in standard mixed leagues.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 The only first basemen to bat at least .290 in each of the last two years? Freddie Freeman, Paul Goldschmidt, and Yuli Gurriel. Houston's career .291 hitter is an underrated stabilizer in batting average who can also drive in 75-85 runs in a stacked lineup. He even popped five homers in September after a long power drought, so the veteran should at least offer double-digit long balls. He's a boring, but productive depth piece for a drafter who loaded up on high-power average liabilities.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
It remains an open question whether Senzel will make the Opening Day roster, and if so where -- the Reds are currently giving him a look in centerfield. Senzel has shown the ability to hit over .300 at every minor league level while also providing a bit of power and speed. Once he's able to earn regular playing time in Cincinnati, it's not hard to see Senzel producing 20-25 homers and 10-15 steals over a full season, along with a solid batting average. He could follow a similar career trajectory to Anthony Rendon.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  Fantasy owners were disappointed to get nothing out of Senzel at the MLB level last year, but they shouldn't give up hope. Rather, barring another series of injuries, he will be with the big league club, weather in Cincy, Miami, San Diego or Cleveland (pending potential trades) rather quickly. He is a true five-tool player and could end up qualifying at 2B, 3B, SS and OF.
