I'm in a very deep league and I really need 20-30 steals from Kaz and I honestly don't know what kind of sbs he can deliver. All of the other speculative guys are gone. Disregarding the rest of his offense, can he deliver at least 20 sbs and maybe more? He hasn't even tried to steal a base yet although it is very early. Sandwiched between the steals of tavares and the power behind him I'm not so sure.
He's second in the majors in stolen bases right now, is there any reason to think he won't be a steady source of steals for fantasy owners the rest of the year? Just wondering if anyone's starting to take minor notice....

i you dont mind the lack of power he could be a one dimensional speed guy with a good avg. i picked him up when hanley went down and he filled in nicely. i dont know about starting him every game in a 12 team mixed though
If guys like taveras, roberts, and pierre are worth owning than so is Kaz. If you ask me, he has more power potential than any of them (he could actually reach double figures) and he plays in Colorado.
He might not be a lock for 40-50 SB, but 30 and maybe even 40 is not out of the question. He's also a 2b unlike those other guys. I got my money on him outperforming Felipez Lopez this year.
I watched him often when he was with the Mets and there is noc way that he is going to keep up hitting above .300, absolutly no way. He's an ok Base Stealer so expect maybe 20-25 SB from him if he stays healthy.
