2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Tsuyoshi Nishioka 2B Minnesota Twins

Fantasy baseball interest in Japanese imports has dwindled in the past couple of years. Tsuyoshi Nishioka, 26, won't change that trend. He batted .300 or better in three of the past four years in Japan. He might approach that mark in the U.S., but he won't hit for power. He could steal 20 bases, but the Twins aren't all green lights. He might play every day, but until last year, Nishioka hadn't played a full season's worth of games because of injuries. There's little mixed league upside for this second baseman. In AL leagues, his stable skill set is attractive for its apparent safety.
