A Closer Look: Cubs Shortstop Starlin Castro

I just posted an article on Cubs SS Starlin Castro over on SB Nation's fantasy page, so head on over and check it out.

Here is an excerpt:

For the season, Castro is hitting .321-.363-.443 with 3 HRs, 40 RBIs and 8 SBs. So, he isn't flashing much power or speed on the basepaths. But, he appears to like hitting second in the Cubs lineup as he is hitting .344-.369-.458 with 2 HRs, 19 RBIs and 7 SBs from the second spot in the lineup. Castro makes alot of contact as evidenced by his 87% contact rate and 93% contact rate for pitches within the zone, courtesy of Fangraphs.

Is Castro a Top 10 shortstop in 2011 fantasy drafts?
