What To Watch For In 2011 - Former G-Stros Secondbaseman

In our continuing series of what we will be looking for from former Greeneville Astros. Moving around the diamond to second, let's see what we will be watching for as the season begins. The year(s) they played in Greeneville and their age on opening day will be in parenthesis.

Second Base
Jose Altuve (2008,09 - 20) Can he build off his success in the Venezuelan Winter Leagues? Can he stay ahead of the throng of young second basement behind him? Can he improve his base stealing?

Delino DeShields (2010 - 18) How will his move from center to second work? How will he perform as the a teen in the Sally League? How will his body & mind hold up over the longer full season? Where will he wind up to end the season?

Albert Cartwright (2007, 08 - 22) - How will he do in AA with the Phillies farm system?
