4. David DeJesus, Rays

DeJesus will be a part of a platoon along with Brandon Guyer, but as the left-handed hitter, DeJesus will see the strong side and should play more frequently than Guyer. In his first full season in Tampa Bay, DeJesus slashed .248/.344/.403 in 83 games and showed his potential to be a strong veteran presence on a young roster. Gone are the days of DeJesus serving as one of few bright spots on a miserable Royals team, where he hit .290/.360/.429 from 2005-2010. However, DeJesus is still a valuable player and has carved out a nice niche with the Rays, where he’ll serve as a reliable platoon player for at least another year or two.
