Alexi Casilla is on a 10 game hitting streak.
He`s got speed--- 142 Steals in the Minors and Majors since 2005. He`s only got 79 ABs this year, but is currently hitting .342. Do we see Casilla starting and batting 2nd for the rest of the year? Is it reasonable to think he his average will be near .300 and get 20 steals from this point on? Batting between gomez and Mauer should ensure plenty of run production.
I know Casilla wont get as much steal oppurtunities batting 2nd behind Gomez,but Chone Figgins is dealing with a Hammy situation. Do you think it might be a worthwhile bet Casilla could come close to Figgins output from this point on?
