Three Up

Chris Davis, BAL

Yeah, he had outfield eligibility in 2013, but will only be eligible at first base in 2014. Davis is coming off a career year in 2013, where he hit .286-.370-.634 with 53 home runs, 103 runs and 138 RBI. No one will project him to hit 50 home runs next season, but 40 is a definite possibility.

Hunter Pence, SFG

I am never one to draft Pence, but have to say I never saw him stealing 20 bags this season. Did you? Pence, in his walk year, hit .283-.339-.483 with 27 HRs, 91 runs, 99 RBI and 22 stolen bases this season. The home run and stolen base totals were a career high, and he has now hit 20 or more home runs in six straight seasons.

Carlos Gomez, MIL

Gomez has established himself as one of the better power-speed hitters in the game, as he hit .284 with 24 HRs, 80 runs, 73 RBI and 40 stolen bases. Is he a second round pick in 2014? I think he just might be.

Wil Myers, TB

Myers outperformed expectation this season, and he is the favorite to win the American League Rookie of the Year award. Myers hit .293-.354-.478 with 13 HRs, 50 runs, 53 RBI and 5 stolen bases in 88 games this season. He has 30-100 potential hitting in the middle of the Rays lineup in 2014.

Three Down

Michael Morse, SEA

Yeah, I admit, I was a fan of Morse's coming into the season, and he played in just 88 games, hitting just .215 with 13 HRs, 34 runs and 27 RBI this season. Coming into 2013, he had hit .289 or better in each of the last three seasons, so I wonder if we could see a bit of a bounce back from him in 2104.

Jason Kubel, CLE

What in the world happened to this guy? After hitting 30 home runs and driving in 90 runs for the Diamondbacks in 2012, he hit just five this season. He apparently wasn't gritty enough, as he was traded out of Arizona to Cleveland. He has little fantasy value in 2014.

Josh Willingham, MIN

Willimngham was a disappointment this season, hitting just .208 with 14 HRs, 42 runs and 48 RBI in 111 games for the last place Twins. He was coming off a 35 home run season in 2012, and a 29 home run season in 2011, so the drop in power, albeit in only 111 games, disappointed his fantasy owners.
