2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: JARROD DYSON COULD BE DARKHORSE STEALS LEADER THIS SEASON

The Seattle Mariners are a few weeks from the start of spring training like the rest of Major League Baseball but their manager Scott Servais has already gone on record saying that newly acquired outfielder Jarrod Dyson is in line to be the team's everyday leadoff hitter.  Having served as a part-time fourth outfielder since debuting with the team in 2010, Dyson's massive speed always makes him a sleeper candidate at this time of the year in the hopes he could become a starter.  That never happened in Kansas City though save for some injury replacement stints but the Mariners fully plan on having him as an everyday leadoff man for 2017 which means Dyson could be a darkhorse candidate to lead baseball in stolen bases.  Consider that despite being a part-time player, Dyson has at least swiped 30 bases in four of the last five seasons.  If Dyson does stick as an everyday leadoff batter, 50 is not out of the question here.  With a draft price that remains very cheap, Dyson could be a swell late round add.
