PROJECTED 2014 SEASON STATS

2014 Projections17521111154114.251.313.331.644
2014 Outlook: Olé! After being cut by the Kansas City Royals this winter, Bonifacio latched on with the Chicago Cubs, who will use him as a utilityman, an important role considering the team's weaknesses at second and third base. He might not ever score regular at-bats with the Cubs, but should sneak in enough playing time to provide NL-only owners with a healthy number of stolen bases.
2. Darwin Barney, ChC 2BYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2013 Statistics5014974136644.208.266.303.569
2014 Projections4935763934616.243.297.337.633
2014 Outlook: Last year, there were 453 hitters to register 100 or more plate appearances and only 14 had a lower batting average on balls in play than Barney. Fewer line drives and more fly balls resulted in a .222 mark. And considering Barney is good for only single-digit homers and steals, he needs every point in batting average he can get. A correction should be in the offing, but that won't help his meek production. At best, he's an endgame middle infield play in deep leagues.
3. Luis Valbuena, ChC 3B, 2BYEARABRHRRBIBBKSBAVGOBPSLGOPS
2013 Statistics33134123753631.218.331.378.708
2014 Projections2733083039611.238.335.385.720
2014 Outlook: With Emilio Bonifacio in tow and Mike Olt and Kris Bryant looming, Valbuena's days of starting at the hot corner in Wrigley Field could be numbered. Valbuena does have a little pop, as evidenced by his 17 homers in 639 big-league plate appearances the past three seasons, but it comes at the cost of a .218 average over that span. The Cubs may be forced to stick with Valbuena; you have better options.
