50. Avisail Garcia. CHW

TOMMY: Garcia is a 22 year old 5 tool prospect. He might not get as much hype as Taveras or Springer, but the upside isn’t far off

PETER: Possibly the biggest prize of the Peavy-Jose Iglesias deal, the 22-year old showed good power in brief MLB stint

51. Torii Hunter, DET

JIMI: Batting 2nd in Tiger lineup is something to consider.

TOMMY: Hope for 2 more years of an average close to .300 and excellent run production.

52. Oswaldo Arcia, MIN

KEVIN: If he can improve on his contact and K%, he could have more value. That speculation for a 3-year outlook has him this high.

PETER: Another young slugger worth taking a flier on for this power potential

53. Nick Markakis, BAL

TOMMY: Much better real life player than fantasy player.

KEVIN: Always feels like a disappointment, but that’s because we all expected a .300/30/20 season out of him when he first came up. He’s solid but not flashy.

54. Marlon Byrd, PIT

PETER: Insane 0.354 BABIP indicates a correction in average is in line, but still has 20 HR pop and RBI/run potential in Pittsburgh

JIMI: 2013 was a great comeback season. Can he do it again? Could depend on where he plays.

55. Norichika Aoki, MIL

TOMMY: Aoki has solid overall numbers with good speed, but the future is up in the air for this 32 year old OF.

KEVIN: He’s not amazing, but he’s undervalued.

56. Kole Calhoun, ANA

JIM: He will force his way into the lineup one way or another.  Sleeper Material.

PAUL: Old for a rookie, but he really had a breakout year even before his promotion. Solid regular at least.

57. Khris Davis, MIL

TOMMY: Davis has nice upside if he has an everyday spot in 2014. He has the power to hit 25+ HRs with a full complement of ABs.

JIMI: Not sure of playing time with Braun coming back?

58. Dexter Fowler, COL

PETER: Solid 10/20 player

JIM: He’s shown us flashes that he can be good, but has never sustained things for long.

59. Byron Buxton, MIN

TOMMY: You could rank him higher and I wouldn’t complain.

PAUL: He’s going to be awesome, but probably not up in 2014

60. Michael Morse, BAL

JIM: Could move to DH or 1B, but solid numbers if he stays in the outfield.

PAUL: It looks like his BB/K rate caught up with him at 31. Streaky power but I’m avoiding.

61. Andre Ethier, LAD

PETER: Is he a 10 or 20 or 30 HR guy, and is there room for him in the Dodger OF?

KEVIN: Most people have now forgotten about his career year in 2009, and that’s a good thing because now he could net some profit at his draft slot.

62. Nick Swisher, CLE

PETER: 9 straight 20+ HR, 60 Run, 60 RBI seasons: Consistent

63. A.J. Pollock, ARI

JIM: All eyes are on Adam Eaton, but Pollock will be the name to know in Arizona.

64. Josh Reddick, OAK

PETER: Injuries slowed him and his average was terrible (0.226) but Reddick has 20+ HR potential

65. Dayan Viciedo, CHW

KEVIN: Young, so there’s chance at growth, but I wouldn’t bet on more than .270 and 20 HR going forward.

JIM: Will slowly turn into a decent fourth outfielder.  Baby steps here.

66. Jackie Bradley Jr, BOS

KEVIN: If Ellsbury leaves Boston, look to Bradley for some HR/SB production but not much BA.

JIMI: Boston has high hopes for him. Fantasy value might not come until ’15.

67. Angel Pagan, SF

JIM: Will contribute something in every category but is no more than a fourth outfielder.

PAUL: Leg injuries worrisome, but if healthy he scores 90 and steals 30 still.

68. Carlos Quentin, SD

KEVIN: This never healthy player needs a move to the AL so he can DH.

JIM: He has a good bat but an unhealthy body. Injury Risk.

69. Colby Rasmus, TOR

PETER: Steals are gone but back-to-back 20 HR seasons since heading north of the border

70. Jason Kubel, CLE

JIM: Sits sometimes against lefties but solid numbers when he plays.

KEVIN: Like many on this list, age and health detract from his value.

71. Denard Span, WAS

TOMMY: Span is a solid source of steals and he will not hurt your average. He lacks upside, but he should be a contributor.

72. Marcell Ozuna, MIA

JIMI: Part of young Marlin outfield, he’s on rise.

73. Nick Castellanos, DET

PAUL: Solid prospect should make team in 2014. Power may develop slowly.

74. Charlie Blackmon, COL

PETER: He’s gonna get playing time when Cargo is injured, and hit 32 doubles between AAA/MLB in 2013
