2013 Fantasy Baseball Playoffs: The Hot Shortstops

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

This year in the fantasy baseball playoffs some big names have struggled to make an impact. Some popular shortstops like Troy Tulowitzki, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Jimmy Rollins have all had problems making contact.

There are some hitters that have fared well in the playoffs though. Here are some of the best hitting shortstops through the first two rounds of the fantasy baseball playoffs this year.

Hanley Ramirez, Los Angeles Dodgers – H-Ram has been crushing the ball in the playoffs this year. He has blasted three long balls in the postseason and has also added four multi-hit contests. He may have aggravated fantasy owners by ending up on the DL twice this season, but he has been doing it all in the playoffs this year.

Erick Aybar, Los Angeles Angels – Aybar has been pretty streaky over his 12 games in the fantasy playoffs this year with four hitless games. However, he happens to be riding a six-game hitting streak and has been rather hot this week.

Jose Reyes, Toronto Blue Jays – Reyes has eight hits, six runs, and one walk in his last four games. The shortstop missed most of the first half of the season with a high ankle sprain, but the speedster has returned to action when it matters most.

Andrelton Simmons, Atlanta Braves – Simmons was rather quiet in the first round of the playoffs, but the youngster has really stepped up in the second round. Simmons has three home runs, one double, one triple, and eight RBIs in his last six games.
