This position is full of guys who are speedsters and can cover the most ground as expected in the outfield. They also tend to be the table setters for the big bats as many of them are expected to bat at the top of the batting order.

Each of them face questions regarding health as none had over 500 at bats last year. Aaron Hicks of the Twins is the youngster, Michael Bourn is hoping to return to form, Adam Eaton and Rajai Davis are both looking to improve upon last year’s numbers, and Lorenzo Cain is looking to prove last year was no fluke.
