Hitters: JD Martinez and Alejandro De Aza are the first outfielders on this list that I would look to add.  Jordan Schafer is still killing it but guys like him and Nolan Reimold just don't have the track record to back up their hot starts.  Matt Joyce is a tricky guy too because he had such a great first half last season before slumping after the All-Star break.

Pitchers: I liked Bartolo Colon a lot more last season when he had the Yankees offense support him, but he is proving to be a valuable fantasy pitcher.  Ivan Nova is suprisingly owned in just 58% of Yahoo leagues.  This guy does nothing but rack up Wins.
