Brian Roberts l Age: 32Roberts isn't getting any younger, but he can still produce when on the field. The biggest sign since his return from back problems is his four stolen bases in 18 games. While his best season's may be behind him, Roberts is a fine keeper option for 2011, but the more he gets into his mid-30's, the more his body and speed should beak down. Once the stolen base numbers start to fall, his value will plummet.
Chone Figgins l Age: 32Mr. Figgins goes to Washington (state) and falls flat on his face. There have been moments this season in which it seemed that Figgy was about to turn things around, but here we are in August and his AVG/OBP/SLG are still well below his career averages. Still, Figgy has 30 stolen bases to his credit and has shown significant improvements in BB/K rate and line drive rate since right around the all-star break. He may make for a nice value pick in the 2011 draft, but speed wears off faster than just about any other skill, so a 33-year-old Figgins in 2011 may not have much long term keeper value.
Juan Uribe l Age: 31There is little doubt that Uribe has 20 home run potential, but his AVG projection is quite volatile due to his low contact/free swinging ways. Going forward, his value will rely heavily on runs and RBI, two opportunity driven stats a player of his stature can not count on from year-to-year.
