It's been a fascinating offseason with the well-publicized rule changes designed to speed up the game, the myriad contract extensions leaving the 2019-20 free-agent pool much shallower, and free agents such as Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel remaining unsigned as we approach Opening Day.

Arizona – Jake Lamb (1B/3B)
Lamb isn't going to help much in the BA department, but prior to an ugly, injury-ridden 2018, Lamb hit 59 home runs in 2016-2017. He's worthless against lefties, but Lamb is set to man first base against right-handers, so he should soon qualify there and at third base. Wilmer Flores should also see time at first, but as long as Lamb is healthy, he should see enough PAs to make another run at 30 home runs.
Atlanta – Bryse Wilson (SP)
Wilson gets a bit lost among the Braves' plethora of young starters, but he's going to start the second game of the season. Wilson struggles at the Triple-A and MLB levels last year and is barely 21, but the upside is significant.

Baltimore – Rio Ruiz (3B)
Ruiz hasn't flashed corner infielder-type power, but the 24-year-old could win the third base job. He's hitting .269/.356/.538 this spring and could be a
