2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Mike Aviles 2B Kansas City Royals

The BA-centric Mike Aviles finished 2010 strong. He left the yard 8 times altogether, though, and his modest FB%l growth and flashes of power in recent years aren't enough to believe in an explosion. He's the front-runner for 3B work and might slide to 2B when Mike Moustakas arrives, but that's hardly cemented. AB and multi-positional eligibility are valuable in AL-only setups, and sure, Aviles can post a helpful clip with some SB. But there are more well-rounded options at both second base, where he's eligible, and third base, where many expect him to earn eligibility and are drafting him for it. Besides his .357 BABIP-fueled .325 clip in '08, his peak line wasn't all that good. How much do you want to spend on hope for improvement of a shaky foundation of skills and playing time?
