Travis Snider, OF (.215 AVG, 5 HR, 25 RBI, 111 G, 53 GS): Blue Jays fans especially may laugh at this one, and rightfully so. The former 14th overall pick (2006 draft) has failed (somewhat miserably) to live up to expectations thus far, which is why the Blue Jays dealt him to Pittsburgh in 2012 for Brad Lincoln. Snider almost, kind of, sort of put it together in 2010 in half a season worth of games (14 HR in 82 G), but his career has been defined by racking up miles on trips back to the minors. If he can stick in 2014—and indications are he may, based on his own solid spring and miserable ones by Jose Tabata and Andrew Lamb—he has the physical tools to succeed. Snider needs to hit lefties (two hits in 22 at-bats last season), but he has never lacked power, more so just the opportunity to play consistently. Granted, this one could be a stretch. Then again, picking Gerrit Cole would be far too easy, wouldn't it?
