BATTING: 22 HRs, 90 RBI, 165 hits, .300 average
FIELDING: 14 assists, three double-plays, 267 put-outs, four errors, .986 percentage.
Despite his slow start to the season, his presence has contributed to the Tribe's great start.
His stats that you see above led Cleveland last season, so it's no surprise that pitchers are zeroing in on him more this year.
That said, with Carlos Santana, Asdrubal Cabrera, Orlando Cabrera and a healthy Travis Hafner, Choo is the main focus after his 2010 campaign.
Others in their lineup are solid, but Santana is young, Orlando is old, Asdrubal is weaker at the plate than in the field and Hafner is just getting back into the swing of things (no pun intended).
Choo has been the most consistent for the Indians since 2008, so if he goes down, opposing pitchers can then focus more on their other hitters (who haven't been as dangerous as Choo).
