Profile: Yoenis Cespedes had another spectacular season with the Mets in 2016. On first glance his numbers may seem to have decreased from 2015 to 2016, but keep in mind he played much of 2016 suffering from numerous nagging leg injuries. Injuries that limited his ability to both accelerate and slide, thus decreasing his ability to not only steal but also take extra bases when given the opportunity. These injuries also lead to a brief stay on the Disabled List. When healthy, Cespedes put up numbers on par with his tremendous second half with the Mets in 2015. His walk rate in 2016 reached a career high 9.4%, and his strikeout rate fell to 19.9%. His patience at the plate has developed far past where it was a few short seasons ago, without any loss in batting average or power. In fact, his power production has steadily climbed along with it. Over the past two seasons, according to Statcast, Cespedes has hit the ball harder than just about everyone in baseball, placing him 11th in major league baseball among qualified batters. With health, you should see an uptick in stolen bases and runs scored for Cespedes while his power production remains steadily in the upper echelon of the sport. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: Cespedes has established himself as one of the elite power hitting outfielders, and a steady top 40 position player. Don't allow the few minor nagging injuries fool you, Cespedes still deserves to be picked somewhere in the top 50 overall.
