Power/Speed Shortstops

Looking for double digit HRs and SBs from your shortstop?  At this point I'm projecting six options:

  • Jose Reyes
  • Hanley Ramirez
  • Jimmy Rollins
  • Alexei Ramirez
  • Rafael Furcal
  • Derek Jeter

If you don't spring for one of the first-rounders, you're looking at Ramirez (fifth round), Furcal (sixth round), and Jeter (eighth round).  All three have their flaws, but Alexei interests me the most.  Sophomore slump or a leap into fantasy stardom?

Five other shortstops who could sneak into double digits in both HRs and SBs: Michael Young, Mike Aviles, Edgar Renteria, Felipe Lopez (assuming 13 games cuts it), and Asdrubal Cabrera.  Three with playing time questions: Brandon Wood, Clint Barmes, and Ben Zobrist.
