2012 Fantasy Baseball: Top 5 Shortstops

Will Troy Tulowitzki be the premier fantasy shortstop in Major League Baseball in 2012?

With Spring Training in full swing, the 2012 fantasy baseball season is just around the corner. During the next week or so, fantasy baseball fiends across the United States will be flooding draft rooms to select their 2012 fantasy baseball lineups.

These are the best offensive fantasy baseball players in the American League as on May 23rd.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Last Week: 1)

As another week passes, more home runs stack up for the best player in baseball right now. Up to 19 home runs so far, Bautista is on pace to put up about 65 homers this season, and at this rate, he may just do it. (more…)
