Left Field: Michael Conforto vs Alex Gordon
With the Royals starters coming in the form of all righties, I assume Conforto will start every game at left field, unless if Terry Collins decides to put Yoenis Cespedes there and put Juan Lagares at center. But for now, I’ll stick with Conforto, who’s had a stellar rookie year with the bat and the glove. He will only get better and will look to make more of an impact as he gets more playing time in the W.S.
Gordon has been a three-time MLB All-Star and is still a solid hitter with pop. Conforto could be a future All-Star, but for now, the veteran Gordon is already a proven commodity.
