When you take one Colorado Rockies batter out of the lineup, it seems like you can just sub another one in and they produce. Drew Stubbs flat out produced in week six.

Victorino had a big hand in the Red Sox World Series crown a season ago and he will need to do just as much, if not more, if Boston wants to succeed in 2014.

Although Carl Crawford is aging and is a shell of what he used to be in Tampa Bay, he's still making a splash for the Dodgers. Los Angeles needs his solid efforts week in and week out.

Stanton happens to be one of my favorite players in baseball, but that's not why the young slugger is on this list. He's tearing up National League pitching every week and he's becoming a superstar in this league.

Seth Smith literally tore it up in week six and it looks like he's a free agent in almost every league on ESPN. If you're looking for some quick outfield help, pick this guy up.
