Are we assuming that Trout, Cabrera, Braun are going 1-2-3? If so, I think you're only options are Cano or Kemp. Kemp will more than likely put up better overall numbers, Cano will do it at the worst fantasy position. It's a tough call, one that I'm stewing over myself. My suggestion would be to do a couple mocks before your real draft starts and change it up each time between the two and see who you end up with?

Unless you think hes going to be suspended, there's absolutely no reason to be. If he didn't flop last year, he won't this year.

think of it this way..even if he had a 1 in 10 chance of getting hit with suspension it would knock him out of my top 4

In a h2h league, would it matter that much if he missed 50 games in june and july lets say? youd still have him for the stretch run.

I would go with Cano. 2nd base is a slim position. Or...

Trade the 4th pick for someone's 2nd, 3rd and 4th round picks. Load up on really good but not elite players.
