Along with Montero, some other top prospects who may move to 1B down the road:
Dayan Vicedo (already spent some time their last year)
Brett Lawrie (Looks like he may try 3B this year and LF may be his final home)
I don't think focusing on 1B is the best strategy. Yes, in 5 years there will be a bunch of 1B drafted in the 1st round and not all of them will be guys currently in the majors. At 1B, you have to hit so much just to make the majors and so much more to have fantasy value. There will be plenty of other guys who switch to 1B that nobody saw coming.
I know this is kind of worthless because who knows what will happen but A) I need something to think about because baseball season is still months away and B) If there is a position that you can usually tell a player is going to end up there, it is first base.
I thought about adding in Chris Carter but for whatever reason didn't. I guess I didn't think he was quite in the same league as Montero and Hosmer. Norris and Conger are interesting additions.
