The 32- year-old is hitting .311 with 12 homers and 43 runs batted in through July 22nd.
First baseman-Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers)
Cabrera holds a slight edge over St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols at this point in the season. He ranks about third in overall daily fantasy baseball league standings among all batters. Cabrera is in the running to win baseball's Triple Crown in more than 40 years. He ranks in first or second in the American
League in average, home runs and runs batted in.
Second baseman-Robinson Cano (New York Yankees)
Cano is putting up exceptional numbers for a middle infielder. In addition to a .333 batting average, he has scored and driven in more than 60 runs. Cano is the only middle infielder to rank in the top 10 among all fantasy hitters.
Shortstop-Hanley Ramirez (Florida Marlins)
While Ramirez is the top fantasy shortstop for the second straight year, his numbers have regressed a little from 2009. He has scored and driven in more than 50 runs this year. Ramirez has a nice combination of power and speed based on his totals of 13 home runs and 20 stolen bases.
Third baseman-Evan Longoria (Tampa Bay Rays) Longoria is just ahead of New York Mets third baseman David Wright in the daily fantasy baseball league rankings at the hot corner. He is hitting over .300 with more than 60 runs batted in and scored for his club in 2010.
Outfielder-Carl Crawford (Tampa Bay Rays)
Crawford is the top overall hitter in daily fantasy baseball league rankings this season. He leads the American League with 71 runs scored while ranking second in stolen bases with 33.
