He hit .303 with 75 runs scored and 30 SBs last year in just over 500 ABs. Can't really see anyone threatening him for PT in the Royals outfield this season, so a .290/80 R/40 SB really isnt out of the question.

Carlos Gonzalez could potentially out-perform his MDP by a long long way.
Pierre is top of the next group because of his track record.
Michael Bourn is on his own at the next level because he strikes out too much for a slap hitting base stealer.
Austin Jackson looks like a bust waiting to happen, especially on a team that could be contending. The Tigers could replace him in a panic move if he fails early.
Brett Gardner - has all but locked up a starting spot.
Dexter Fowler - sneaky power, gives himself good opportunity to run with a strong OBP.
Dude Pierre is awful as a LF, no arm strength at all. Chisox have plenty of OF's in camp and I wouldn't bank on Pierre playing the majority of the time.
Austin Jackson might possibly be a bust but he's been playing well this spring. It also doesn't hurt that he has Leyland's trust as the lead off hitter. Barring a complete meltdown , Austin should be at least solid this season.
I see alot of people hyping up Gardner but am I missing something here? I think he's a below average hitter. I'm saying the guy is a slap hitter that doesn't even do that well. Randy Winn was brought in for a reason , and it wasn't to watch Gardner play everyday.
