The latest byproduct of Cardinal Devil Magic, Bader broke out with 12 homers, 15 steals, and a 3.5 fWAR in 138 games. He was in the midst of a sophomore slump (.179/.347/.359, 2 HR, 0 SB in 13 games) before landing on the IL with a hamstring strain. Because of his elite defense in center field, the 24-year-old has maintained a starting role despite St. Louis' dearth of options. Yet an exit velocity (85.9 mph) in the bottom-12 percentile makes him an average risk, and he has stolen just four bases in seven chances. He's no longer worth rostering in 12-team mixed leagues.
