Fantasy Baseball 2012: Top 20 Shortstops from This Point Forward

At age 22, Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro (6 HR, 38 RBI, 33 Runs, 16 Steals, .302 BA) is a reasonable candidate for 15 homers, 85 runs, 27 steals and a .300 batting average by season's end.

The following countdown touts my picks for the top 20 shortstops in fantasy baseball—from this point forward.

To clarify, this listing is not necessarily a celebration of those who posted stellar stats from April 4 to June 21, or those who were prominently featured in the preseason rankings.

It's simply a compilation of the best assets moving forward. It's also a rundown of the 20 most appealing SS-eligible hitters to pursue in trades for the stretch run.

When originally crafting the list, I was surprised that Erick Aybar, Ryan Theriot nor Sean Rodriguez made the final cut.

But in a season where the real depth at shortstop runs almost 25 deep, hard choices had to be made somewhere.

Enjoy the show!
