Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Shortstop

The top 5 shortstops have been consistent for the past few years. Troy Tulowitzki has the ability to hit 30 HR and steal 20 bases and he brings quality hitting as well. His career slashline is .292/.364/.504. The biggest question about Tulo is his health. Can he stay healthy and log over 140 games? The last 2 season he has played in that many games, he’s hit over 30 home runs.

There’s also a lot to like about Jose Reyes, Starlin Castro and Ben Zobrist too. Reyes’ place in a very potent lineup makes him very attractive. I do have some fears about Reyes playing on an artificial surface in a very tough division. He has seriously legit skills, but I just wonder about if those things take a toll on his numbers. Starlin Castro and Ben Zobrist are both pretty safe plays to get good (not great) fantasy production.
