Lind vs. Rios

Which one of these players has more value going forward?

Rios has the track record, but Lind has been raking.

If I took part in a draft today I wouldn't draft Lind in the first 10 rounds unless maybe if it were Roto and I got to keep the stats they had already produced.

Still Rios. Although Lind is showing an improved batting eye with more power than he has in the past.

Don't know if it's an "improved" batting eye because Lind has hit well at all levels and has the track record (.280 career MLB hitter). I would have defended this point a year ago, but more and more I get the impression that Rios is miscast in his role as a number 3 hitter and Lind fits the bill perfectly for that kind of versatile hitter with power. I think Lind has the greater power and run production potential, but Rios brings the speed to the table.
