61. Leonys Martin:  Found some power to go with the always solid speed last season but Martin finished terribly.  He remains a firm outfielder 3 player this season.
62. Rajai Davis:  Always seems to find the at-bats and put up big steal numbers.  Aging but Davis swiped 43 bags a year ago and will start for the A's.
63. Max Kepler:  Opened eyes by hitting 17 homers and stealing 6 bases in just 396 at-bats.  Struggled badly against lefties though and Kepler was horrible in September.  
64. Tyler Naquin:  All in all Naquin was excellent replacing Michael Brantley as he went 14/6 and batted .296.  Was not much of a prospect though so Naquin could easily come back to earth.  Also not guaranteed playing time with a healthy Brantley.  
65. Michael Saunders:  Love the landing spot in Philadelphia where Saunders' good power can remain potent.  Just understand though Saunders doesn't run anymore (1 steal last two years) and his average is always ugly.  
66. Jason Heyward:  Was beyond brutal in his first go-round with the Cubs but Heyward can only go up from here.  Good for 20 steals and a few homers if all breaks right.
67. Melvin Upton:  Quietly had a nice year with 20 homers and 27 steals and now plays home games in Toronto.  Yes please despite the ugly average.
68. Domingo Santana:  Yet another outfielder who can hit homers but struggles with the average.  Santana could land a prominent spot in the Milwaukee order again this season,
69. Hunter Renfroe:  Talked about him earlier in day but in summary, big power potential.  
70. Alex Gordon:  Aging and coming off a terrible season.  Gordon's speed is long gone and his average is falling under the weight of an increased K rate.
71. Andrew Toles:  Could catch on with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toles has hit at all levels.  Mostly a lottery pick.
72. Steven Souza:  Has some power/speed juice but a good average for Souza is .250.  
73. Cameron Maybin:  Has had a tough time staying healthy lately but Maybin was actually pretty darn good on a per game basis the last two seasons.  
74. Mallex Smith:  Could steal a crazy amount of bases as long as the hits keep falling.
75. Jarrod Dyson:  Another speed demon who could pile up steals in a hurry.  
76. Aaron Judge:  Not sure if Judge will even make the team but the power is immense.  
77. Nick Markakis:  Now mostly a decent average and good runs/RBI guy and not much else.  
78. Jayson Werth:  He has no more speed and an average that keep dipping but Werth at least can pop some homers.  
79. Roman Quinn:  Stole 41 bags last season in the minors for the Phillies but could be blocked after Saunders signed. 
80. Avisail Garcia:  The hype has not matched the results here and so Garcia is nothing more than a backup bat.
