Andrus could steal 50 bases in 2010

2/26/2010

Elvis Andrus acquitted himself very well at the major league level in his rookie season in 2009, hitting .267 and going 33-for-39 on the basepaths. It's even more impressive when you consider the fact that he couldn't even go out for a beer with his teammates until late August.

Now we're left to wonder what the 21-year-old's immediate upside (in steals and batting average) is, and let's just say it's a little more robust than most people realize. That, in turn, makes him more valuable than where he's being taken in early fantasy drafts. Let's see just how valuable, shall we?
