The injury might be a concern with Maggs, but when they're healthy they're about equal in value IMO. The SB's don't help as much in real life as they do in fantasy... they certainly don't hurt, and along with age and health give Beltran a slight edge. But if I was a GM... I'd go for Maggs because he'll come cheaper (at least I think he will).
SB are incredibly valuable IRL, especially when you steal at a 90% clip like Beltran has done in his career (or even better at his '04 rate of 93%).
The other reason that Beltran has a higher value, other than the injury concern and age difference you mentioned is that Beltran plays CF where there is a much greater shortage of offensive players than in RF where Mags plays.
