2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Chalk: about 100 runs and 40 steals - batting third won't put him at previous levels - in a healthy season, regardless of batting position. Rest is in flux. Reasons to think his clip might dip below .300 include rising FB% - more HRs, BA drop, perhaps? Not far-fetched when combined with still subpar BB/K, a sinking liner rate and his persistent struggles versus lefties, the last one a three-year problem. Speed will keep his BA afloat enough that it won't be a huge drop if it happens. Has enough power to remain bankable first-round value as long as you address another power source for a foundation.
