Fantasy Baseball: Top 10 Shortstops

Sleeper: Jean Segura, Milwaukee Brewers

Remember when Ryan Braun smashed Segura in the head with a bat while warming up last season? Segura’s season turned even worse when his nine-month-old son passed away in July. It is difficult to expect anyone to play well after those events, so expect Segura to rebound nicely after a difficult 2014, when he hit .243 with five homers and 20 steals. He hit .294 with 12 home runs, 74 runs and 44 steals in his breakout season in 2013. If he can approach that type of production again, he will easily be a top 10 shortstop this season. In most leagues he is going between the 17th and 20th rounds, so he could be an exceptional pick with upside if you look at other positions early.
