I think it depends on 2 things.
1. What does the Twins lineup look like?
2. How's the knee? Does he steal?

Hunter stole last season because his team lacks pop. Morneau did squat and there really is not much power in the Twins lineup. Barring some turnaround, I do not see that changing much but his health situation might preclude him from running anyway.

That said, Hunter has always been a pretty mediocre at best hitter and vastly overrated off one good offensive year. I do not know whether that translates into next season or not. He could get dealt also. Either way, I do not think he is all that great a pick and is someone you want to look at in the round 9-12 range as a specualtive gamble when surer things are off the board. After all, this guy has only a 779 lifetime OPS with a 267 avg. Even his best year was only a 859 OPS and that was turf aided obviously.

Hunter to me is a solid 4th OF, he's a good back-up guy, but in a 12 team format you need to have better guys ready to start for you. I started him last year for his hot streak and then traded him off around mid-season..

Does Hunter have value? Sure, but don't draft him hoping that he'll be more than a platoon OFer for your fantasy team.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I'm with you all on this one too. I doubt he'll steal bases after surgery anyway.
