Kosuke Fukudome's rookie card as a Chunichi Dragon
This projection could go almost any way you want it to go. Will Dome continue to have the production he's had in Japan? Most Japanese position players have seen their power decline when coming to MLB, but the other parts of their game stay about the same.

Here's my pick:
