Jose Altuve is the clear leader here, but beyond him things get immediately interesting with Trea Turner. Turner hit .342 with 13 homers and 33 steals in less than half a season as a rookie, and his early ADP has him near the end of the first round. Too early, right? … Daniel Murphy’s newfound power is certainly interesting, and he’s got 1B/2B eligibility. Here’s the catch: Do you want to draft a 32-year-old second basemen with ONE season of more than 14 homers before the end of Round 3? Hmm … What do we do with Jason Kipnis, whose last three seasons have produced six, nine and 23 home runs? Be wary, and don’t expect a repeat of 2016. His ADP of 96 factors in such skepticism … Ian Kinsler had his best HR, R and OPS totals since 2011. He’s almost 35, but with a seventh-round ADP he’s probably worth it … Jonathan Schoop will probably bat .260 with 20-25 homers, and he’s got an ADP of 169. Count me in.
