2011: .296, 32 HR, 105 RBI
The former Mariner, Beltre had a monster season in his first season with the Rangers, and is another example of a player who upped his production outside of Seattle.
The Mariners can't get Beltre back and will most likely start Chone Figgins at third on opening day. Figgins had a lackluster 2011, hitting just .188 with 11 stolen bases.
Young third baseman Kyle Seager will also likely see playing time at the hot corner. He got action in 53 games and still has a long way to go, but with increased playing time again in 2012 he could develop into a solid player. Also look for Alex Liddi to slide into the lineup at third or DH.
