SS - Starlin Castro

Chicago Cubs

When you think of Castro, you have to think future batting champion. The only shortstops to win batting titles in the past 50 years are Hanley Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra. That is some company. Even Derek Jeter hasn't done it. What makes Castro a bit overlooked is how raw he is at 20 years of age. But he has already hit .300 and the power and steals should follow. He is going to be drafted after the top 10 fantasy shortstops in many leagues, but he could go .300-10-65-100-25 as he matures.

Shortstops -- Reid Brignac (TB); Ian Desmond (WAS); Jason Donald (CLE); Alcides Escobar (KC).
