For years, it has seemed that the outfield has been a plentiful supply of productive
#1
For years, it has seemed that the outfield has been a plentiful supply of productive fantasy performers; it may no longer be quite the same source of offensive production -- perhaps due to an increased emphasis on defensive performance -- but that makes the good ones even more valuable, the best one, most valuable. Brandon Saad Jersey . That most valuable of all players is the Angels Mike Trout, who is in a class by himself. Over the past two seasons, Trout has scored 238 runs, 26 more than anyone else and his 82 stolen bases also leads the majors. His .324 batting average ranks second, while home runs (57) and RBI (180) are Top 25 totals. Put it all together and there is no one more valuable. Pittsburghs Andrew McCutchen and Baltimores Adam Jones are next behind Trout in runs scored over the past couple seasons, but they also bring pop to the plate, speed to the basepaths and hit for average. In McCutchens case, his .322 batting average over the past two seasons ranks third overall behind Miguel Cabrera and Trout. There are a lot of outfield options that come with question marks -- lots of upside too, but definitely question marks. Will Milwaukees Ryan Braun, presumably clean after a PED suspension, still be a masher? Prior to last seasons injury and suspension-shortened campaign, Braun had four straight seasons with at least 25 home runs, 100 RBI and a .300 batting average, with double-digit steals each season, culminating with 30-30 seasons in 2011 and 2012. The Dodgers Yasiel Puig had an immediate impact as a rookie last season, crushing 19 home runs in 382 at-bats, and there is always the concern that such a starburst beginning to a career can lead to a sophomore slump. Its worth banking on talent, and Puig has lots, but beware that he may not automatically pick up where he left off in 2013. Moving away from some of the more volatile picks near the top of the board, there are solid, but not overly exciting, veterans. Matt Holliday is consistent and Cincinnatis Jay Bruce provides reliable power. Even the Yankees Carlos Beltran has been both productive and healthy in the past couple seasons, hitting 56 home runs in more than 1100 at-bats. Other veterans come with some variance, with upside that makes them appealing. Texas Alex Rios is one of five outfielders to have at least 40 homers and 40 stolen bases over the past two seasons; the Angels Josh Hamilton had a miserable first season in California, but hes one year removed from a 43 home run season in Texas. Injuries have dinged new Yankee Jacoby Ellsbury from time to time, but hes also stolen 50 bases in three different seasons, while Torontos Jose Bautista has played a total of 210 games in the past two seasons, yet has still slugged 55 home runs. If youre looking to invest in potential, you can do far worse than targeting Washingtons Bryce Harper, a supremely-talented 21-year-old who has hit 42 home runs in his first two big league seasons, but also plays so hard that injuries may be inevitable if he doesnt learn how to better pick his spots. Milwaukees Carlos Gomez had a breakthrough year as a 27-year-old in 2013 and he joins Trout as the only outfielders with at least 40 homers and 70 stolen bases over the past two seasons. Pittsburghs Starling Marte swiped 41 bases in his first full season, Tampa Bays Wil Myers showed some power as a rookie, hitting 13 home runs in 335 at-bats. There are maybe a handful of outfielders that have the potential to hit more than 40 home runs and Miamis Giancarlo Stanton -- who has 37 and 34-homer seasons already -- is one of them. Risk with potential is also attached to the Dodgers Matt Kemp, who has missed 145 games over the past two seasons; the Mets Curtis Granderson, who played only 61 games for the Yankees in 2013, but had back-to-back 40-homer seasons prior to that. The Braves Jason Heyward had a 20-20 season in 2012 before injuries cost him 58 games last season, but Heyward has potential to put together a big power season. Cincinnati speedster Billy Hamilton has to have some value, for no other reason than hes the most dangerous base-stealer in a generation. If Hamilton has even passable on-base numbers, his steals will tilt a category. Some other young outfielders that might provide value later in drafts or in deeper leagues include the Angels Kole Calhoun, the Twins Oswaldo Arcia and the Brewers Khris Davis.

This weeks Raptors Report puts a bow on Gays brief, 10-month tenure in Toronto and ponders how his absence will affect the teams offence. Are they a better team without him? In addition to acquiring some valuable cap flexibility, what impact will the four incoming players have this season and beyond? Click here for the Dec.DUNEDIN, Florida - Kevin Pillar and Ryan Goins made their respective major league debuts nine days apart last August and with just days until spring training play gets underway, the two late-season Toronto Blue Jays call ups find themselves in different situations vis-à-vis the 2014 squad. Goins is the early favourite to win the starting job at second base. Pillar is an outsider to secure a role off the bench, which becomes an even more difficult spot to win if the number of back up jobs is reduced by one. That happens if the Blue Jays decide to start the season with an eight man bullpen. Praised last week by general manager Alex Anthopoulos as the best defensive second baseman the club has had since Orlando Hudson and as "gold glove caliber," Goins hopes an offensive adjustment he made in mid-September helps to round out his game. Goins moved his hands down in his batting stance. Then, during an offseason visit to new hitting coach Kevin Seitzer in Kansas City, Goins went one step further, starting his hands closer to his body. "I have more time to see the ball," he said. "My timing is a little different than having so much movement, having to get going so much earlier, so now its a little better to see the ball and hopefully it will lead to better plate discipline, hitting the ball harder and more consistent." A safe bet to be the nine-hole hitter if he makes the team, Goins is eager to improve upon the .609 OPS he posted in 121 plate appearances over 34 games with the Blue Jays last season. His .679 OPS in 111 Triple-A games last season feeds into the all defense-not much offense narrative but Anthopoulos is more concerned with run prevention this season after watching his infield struggle with injuries and range last year. "He needs to be able to hold is own (offensively,)" said manager John Gibbons. Seitzer, during his first scrum with the Toronto media in January, said he saw Goins as a potential .275-.280 hitter. Their Kansas City rendezvous had already happened so Seitzer was speaking as someone whod watched Goins up close. "I see myself as a hitter," said Goins. "I think I can put together productive at-bats for a season and help the team win. Bobby Orr Jersey. Whatever they need me to do. If its situational hitting, hit and runs, bunting guys over. Whatever is called upon me, wherever Im hitting in the lineup, is what Im going to go out there and do everyday." Pillar, who made his debut on August 14 and went 0-17 before getting his first big league hit at Yankee Stadium, struggled to a .206/.250/.333 line over 110 plate appearances. He got away from his strength as an offensive player, an up-the-middle approach, becoming pull happy and unable to lay off down-and-away breaking pitches. Not one to mope, Pillar went home to Southern California and went to work. "I went home, took about two weeks off in the offseason and Ive been hitting three to four hours everyday just trying to get back," said Pillar. "People say, Why dont you just go back to what you did? Once its gone its gone. Like a lot of things in life, once you forget how to do it or how you felt in the box youve got to recreate that feeling." Pillar insists he isnt exaggerating his three-to-four hours a day hitting routine. His only break wasnt a break. He went to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic and had 66 at-bats, his attempt to get back in his groove. Lawrie thrilled for Team Canada Brett Lawrie, the lone Blue Jay whos Canadian born and raised, was happy to lord Canadas Olympic hockey gold medals over his teammates. After all, Lawrie is badly outnumbered in the clubhouse. "When youre the underdog youve got to keep quiet because theres too many of them," said Lawrie. "I just waited for my turn and then obviously I got my opportunities." Lawrie did his best to keep an eye on Sundays win, working around media responsibilities and warm up Sunday morning at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Kawasaki follow up One day after predicting Canada would beat Sweden 2-1 in the mens hockey gold medal game, Munenori Kawasaki was pleased with himself. "I say Canada win," Kawasaki said. When reminded he didnt pick the correct score, Kawasaki issued a pseudo apology: "My bad. Im no good." Kawasaki didnt watch the game.
