Fantasy Baseball: 2010 AL OF dynasty/keeper rankings.

1. Carl Crawford- 2008 an off year? I think so.

2. Grady Sizemore- Could easily be number one, but injury drops him down. Who knows how he'll bounce back.

3. Adam Lind- 3/100/.300 is entirely possible again after a breakout 2009.

4. Jacoby Ellsbury- Basically a cheaper Carl Crawford, with more steals.

5. Jason Bay- Free agent to be. Value relies on where he signs.

6. Nick Markakis- Consistent four category producer.

7. Ben Zobrist- Lots of non-believers, but I have faith. 90 runs, 25 HR, 90 RBI, 15 SB potential.

8. Curtis Granderson- 30 HR, 90 runs and 20 SBs are possible again. 2009 low average due to low BABIP.

9. Ichiro Suzuki- Missed time in 2009 and still put up good speed and average.

10. Josh Hamilton- The upside is too much to ignore, yet couldn't keep healthy in 2009.

11. B.J. Upton- Don't expect a repeat of his fluke 2007 season but don't expect another flukey season like 2009.

12. Bobby Abreu- Consistently scores 100 runs, drive in 100 RBI and hits near .290. Steals and HR a plus. Age and pending free agency drops value. 

13. Nelson Cruz- 30 HR potential again with 15+ SBs. Runs and RBIs dependant on playing time.

14. Shin-Soo Choo- 20/20/.300. Should benefit better with Sizemore in the lineup for a full season.

15. Adam Jones- Breakout 2009 shortened by injury. In a full season, should hit 20-25 HR and steal 10-15 bases. Average could remain .270-.290.

16. Carlos Quentin- Didn't even accumulate 400 ABs and hit 21 HR and was bothered by injury for a good portion of the season. .236 due in large part by .223 BABIP. 

17. Johnny Damon- Remained valuable in 2009 despite lack of stolen bases. Age and pending free agency drop value.

18. Torii Hunter- Missed significant time in 2009 and still put up numbers in line with career averages.

19. Michael Cuddyer- Large spike in FB/HR ratio but 30 HR upside is hard to ignore later in drafts.

20. Denard Span- Ability to hit .300 with 90+ runs and 20+ SBs. Only 25 years old as well.
