Billy Hamilton swiped 58 bases in 2016, but is there reason to believe he could make a run at 80 SB in 2017? Plus Hernan Perez, Joe Ross, Fernando Rodney, and Adonis Garcia.

Is there any value left in the arm of Anibal Sanchez (RHP, DET)? His triple-digit BPV from the second half of 2016 and strong 2017 spring give reason for hope, but the excellent spring of Matt Boyd (LHP, DET) gives him little room for error.

The big spring by feast-or-famine Cody Reed (LHP, CIN) puts him in an early-season position to make an impact in the open CIN rotation.
