8. Kurt Suzuki C: Back on the regression wheel, Suzuki looked the part of an All-Star last season, that probably won’t continue. After turning in a .288/.345/.383 line, it is almost certain that his numbers will regress. That being said, he is used to hitting at the bottom of the lineup, and if his numbers don’t slip too far, the run production could be expected to be in the same realm. After earning a contract extension in 2014, expect Suzuki to once again be relied upon both for his defense and offense by the Twins.
