Left field isn't as strong a position as it once was, but that could change in the coming years as a young crop of hitters and fielders comes into their own.
For now, there's a fun mix of the old guard, the new guys, and perhaps a few players you didn't expect to be so high on this list:

Melky Cabrera - White Sox
He's not going to hit you 20 homers, and he's atrocious defensively, but most teams would take that for a guy who can slash .296/.345/.455 like the Melk Man did in 2016.

Andrew Benintendi - Red Sox
He's arguably the top prospect in baseball and at 22 last season he came up and posted a 120 wRC+ in 34 games. We'll see what he can do in a full season, but it's unlikely he's at No. 9 next year.

Matt Kemp - Braves
He's driven in 100 the last two years and in 2016 he hit 35 homers. He's not walking like he used to — last season he barely had a .300 OBP — but he's still one of the best power hitters in the National League.

Justin Upton - Tigers
The ups-and-downs of last season were a bit much, but he still finished 2016 with 31 homers and a relatively respectable slash line of .246/.310/.465. You can expect that kind of performance annually.

Marcell Ozuna - Marlins
Ozuna had a weird 2015, where he was sent down to the minors in what appeared to be an effort to not pay him (Marlins baseball, everyone!).
He bounced back in 2016, hitting 23 homers and slashing .266/.321/.452 — almost identical numbers to his strong 2014 campaign.
There's still room for Ozuna to grow, but even if he sticks where he is and provides (slightly) above-average defense, he'll prove worthy of this spot.

Gregory Polanco - Pirates
Polanco is starting to display some of the incredible potential he carries. Last season he hit 22 homers and posted a career-best slash line of .258/.323/.463. If those numbers jump up again in 2017, his place on this list will accordingly move.

Khris Davis - A's
There's more than few players on this list who have low OBPs and high homer totals, but did any of them hit 42 homers last year (playing for Oakland, no less)?

Ryan Braun - Brewers
Braun had his best year since 2012 in 2016 when he hit 30 homers and slashed .305/.365/.538. Does anyone want to trade for one of the best hitters in the game?

Kyle Schwarber - Cubs
He's not that poor of an outfielder - seriously.
And this guy can rake. He murders baseballs.
We found that out in 2015 when he hit 16 homers in 273 plate appearances and was awesome in the postseason. We discovered it again when he was a hero of the World Series.
No. 1 and it wasn't even close. Cespedes had a monster 2016, cementing his place as one of the best players in baseball. He hit .280/.354/.530, bashed 30 homers for a second straight year, and still has a rocket launcher for an arm.
