San Francisco Giants OF Norichika Aoki is the favorite to be the team's starting left fielder on opening day, but he'll be battling OFs Gregor Blanco, Travis Ishikawa and Juan Perez this spring. Aoki has just 144 strikeouts in the last three seasons combined. Blanco and Perez are probably slightly better defensive options than Aoki, though.
Fantasy Tip: As the favorite to start in left field, Aoki will have late mixed-round value in 12-team fantasy baseball leagues. His power has declined slightly in recent years, so you'll be getting a scrappy player that is mainly useful as a stolen-base and on-base percentage asset.
