Combined projected WAR: 18.7Top five everyday players:-CF Kevin Kiermaier (4.4 WAR)-3B Evan Longoria (3.5)-2B Brad Miller (2.4)-SS Matt Duffy (1.6)-LF Colby Rasmus (1.5)Kevin Kiermaier has been the best defensive player in the game the past two seasons, and his bat has started to come around. Last season, he posted career highs in wRC+ (104), stolen bases (21), home runs (12) and walk rate (9.7 percent). Brad Miller erupted for 30 home runs in 2016 after never hitting more than 11, and Fangraphs expects the power to stay, projecting a .250/.317/.437 slash line.
