10. Ian Desmond
2015 Stats: .233 AVG/19 HR/62 RBI
2016 FanGraphs Steamer Projections: .241 AVG/17 HR/62 RBI

Desmond just signed this past week with the Texas Rangers to not be a shortstop but an outfielder. He will most likely play left field for the time being unless Josh Hamilton can get healthy and regain his form (which is fairly unlikely). The reason Desmond makes this list is he will still be eligible at shortstop. He is coming off a down year but goes to a hitter-friendly park in Texas. If you are searching for home runs late in your draft, Desmond might not be a bad choice.
