Looking for Steals?

Kazuo Matsui has come a long way since he began his MLB career with the New York Mets. After moving on to the Colorado Rockies, Matsui has blossomed. In 2006, Matsui hit .345 in 113 at-bats with the Rockies. So far in 2006, Matsui is batting .291 in 323 at-bats. Quality average for a starting second baseman. In addition to a decent batting average, Matsui is swiping bags at a high rate. In fact, for the month of August to-date, Matsui has stolen 11 bases. That's third best in the majors, behind speedsters Hanley Ramirez and Jose Reyes, for the month. If you're looking for some late speed, he may be your man.
