Jason Heyward

I placed Jason Heyward at number 50, as he could easily move to the top of the 26-50 outfield ranking in 2010. I like Jay Bruce to have a breakout season in 2010-think 30-90-.270 with double digit steals.

Another breakout outfielder is the Padres outfielder Kyle Blanks. I recently traded for him in an NL-only keeper league and think he can go 25-80 this year. I see Alfonso Soriano having a bounce back season, and he could outperform his current draft position.

More after the jump:

It appears the Rockies will let Carlos Gonzalez bat leadoff to start the season, and if spring training is any indication, CarGo will be given the green light to steal in 2010. I can see 25+ SBs from him this season.

If Juan Pierre plays everyday, he easily could steal 50+ bases in 2010, and with his contact rates, he can still hit .300 providing solid value. Those numbers would put him in the top 25 for 2011.

I am not a fan of Raul Ibanez repeating his 2009 performance in 2010, but he hits in a very good lineup, so he could still put up a 25-90 season.
