2011 Fantasy Baseball All-Breakout Team: Each Position’s Soon-to-be Fantasy Star

By now, you’ve already drafted your fantasy team(s) and have set your lineup(s) for Opening Day. (Happy Opening Day, by the way!) While some sites make lazy claims by promoting top 100 players as breakout candidates, I choose to dig much deeper. Heck, I’ve seen Drew Stubbs flagged as a 2011 breakout performer on several occasions. How can a guy who hit 22 HRs and stole 30 bags last year be dubbed a future fantasy star? He’s already a top-50 player in my mind. He’s already risen from the depths of the waiver wire, just as I had predicted he would at this time last year...

The most recent shortstop prospect from Long Island Beach State (following Bobby Crosby, Troy Tulowitzki and Evan Longoria), Espinosa is a switch-hitter with average tools across the board. He’s hit .270/.365/.455 in parts of three seasons in the minors, including 22 HRs, 25 steals and a .268/.337/.464 slash in 481 at-bats last season between Double-A and Triple-A. Upon his September call-up last season, Espinosa hit six HRs in just 103 at-bats. His batting average (.214) slumped thanks to a .239 BABIP and a 45.8 fly-ball rate. His contact rate (69.3 percent) also lagged behind, as did his 29.1 strikeout rate...
