He’s already three off the pace from his home run total from all of last season. His injury history can’t be ignored, but he looks like a new man.

He has been on fire at the plate to start the 2017 campaign, slashing .387/.441/.774 with six long balls and 16 RBI. He should be owned and started in even the shallowest of mixed leagues at this point.

It's been a heck of a start to the year for the 32-year-old, who's now hitting .389/.431/.778 with five homers, 13 RBI, 10 runs and a stolen base. He sure seems to have found the fountain of youth this winter.
