RF/LF J.D. Martinez, Detroit Tigers

Martinez is one of those outfielders that will have a lot more upside that can be picked about the same time as Gordon.

The 27-year-old slashed a career-high .315/.358/.553 in 2014 along with posting a career-high 23 home runs, 76 RBI, 57 runs, and 30 doubles.

The question now is will Martinez repeat those numbers again.

Entering the prime of his career, he certainly could repeat them, but it seems unlikely he hits .300 again. If owners take Martinez ahead of Gordon, then they will be counting on him doing so because Gordon will score more runs and steal more bases.
