2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 15 Shortstops

Shortstop has become a very difficult position to fill. It offers very little power, made evident by the fact that only four shortstops hit 20 or more home runs last year. If you’re looking for steals, however, this is where you find ‘em. Twenty five shortstops racked up double-digit totals last season, including seven who stole 20-plus. There’s a steep drop off after Ramirez and Tulowitzki, although Reyes could re-join the elite ranks given a full season in the lineup. Derek Jeter should bounce-back from a career-worst season, while rising stars such as Ian Desmond and Starlin Castro bring hope to fantasy managers in the later rounds...

In projecting Ramirez for 2011, his spot in the potent White Sox lineup is a deciding factor. He hit second more than any other spot last season, but performed best in the eight hole, batting .296 with seven HRs and six steals in 162 at-bats...

In 2008, Jay Bruce ranked among the top prospects in baseball. In fact, Baseball America claimed “every one of (his) tools is better than average”.

Tampa Bay Rays’ BJ Upton Headlines the 2009 All-Bust Team

While compiling this list, I did my best to exclude players who spent a significant amount of time on the disabled list, as I feel it’s unfair to hang the “bust” label on players due to injury....
