1. Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado Rockies  

Tulo reached over 100 RBI for the first time in his career in 2011 despite playing in just 143 games.

2. Hanley Ramirez, Miami Marlins

Last year was extremely disappointing for Ramirez, but if he’s healthy his power and speed make him one of the best fantasy options in baseball.

3. Jose Reyes, Miami Marlins

Reyes would thrive leading off for any lineup, especially the Marlins.

4. Elvis Andrus, Texas Rangers

Andrus was second and third among shortstops in runs and stolen bases in 2011.

5. Asdrubal Cabrera, Cleveland Indians

Not enough credit went to Cabrera for the season he had last year, a season included 25 HR and 92 RBI.

6. Starlin Castro, Chicago Cubs

Castro was the only shortstop in baseball with at least 200 hits in 2011.  He hit .307 in 674 AB.

7. Jimmy Rollins, Philadelphia Phillies

He’s been in the league for more than a decade but Rollins is still stealing 30 bases a season like he did in 2011.  Keep in mind that he only played in 142 games.

8. Alexei Ramirez, Chicago White Sox

Ramirez is an unsung hero in Chicago’s lineup.  He hit 15 HR and 70 RBI in 2011.

9. Johnny Peralta, Detroit Tigers

Peralta had one of the best seasons of his career while helping the Tigers to the playoffs.  He eclipsed 20+ HR and 80+ RBI in the same season for just the second time in nine seasons.

10. J.J. Hardy, Baltimore Orioles

Hardy and Tulo were tied for most HR among shortstops with 30 in 2011.

11. Derek Jeter, New York Yankees

It was a ho-hum kind of a season for Jeter in 2011 but he was still tied for sixth among shortstops with 162 hits.

12. Erick Aybar, Los Angeles Angels

Aybar ranked second among shortstops in doubles in 2011 (33) and fourth in stolen bases (30).

13. Emilio Bonifacio, Miami Marlins

Bonifacio hit .295 while leading shortstops in stolen bases with 40 last season.

14. Stephen Drew, Arizona Diamondbacks

It looked like the makings of a great season before Drew broke his right ankle in late July of last season, but in just 321 AB he brought in 45 runs.

15. Dee Gordon, Los Angeles Dodgers

Gordon was a late addition to L.A.’s lineup last season, but it didn’t take long for him to prove that he belonged.  In just 56 games he stole 24 bases.
