Brantley’s batting average is in the same neighborhood as the other four names to come on this list, but Brantley hasn’t produce as much power, so he lands at No. 5.

Still, fantasy owners will gladly take his .366 batting average with one home run, six runs and five RBI.

One of Brantley’s biggest fantasy attributes is his ability to limit his strikeouts. In two of the last three years, Brantley has nearly walked the same amount of times as he has struck out.

This spring, he has four strikeouts and two walks in 41 at-bats.
