Stolen Bases

Mike – Jarrod Dyson

When KC needs a stolen base, he seems to know how to take it.

Granted, starting on the DL will have him playing catch up but there’s no one other than Gore who can swipe a bag.

David – Jarrod Dyson

All he needs is 300 plate appearances, and I think he’ll lead the team.

Give him 450, he might lead the AL.

John – Jarrod Dyson

Dyson has 126 stolen bases the last four seasons as a part-time player.

He can easily hit the 50 or 60 stolen base mark this season in which he figures to get regular playing time in right.

Ryan – Jarrod Dyson

This all depends on whether Reymond Fuentes gets legitimate playing time.

Because if he doesn’t, and Jarrod Dyson gets 350-400 plate appearances (which is a bit of a stretch), this might not be close.

It’s easy to forget that he swiped 34 bags in 2013 despite only  having 239 plate appearances.

Fans – Jarrod Dyson

Lorenzo jumped out to a quick start in this poll, but Dyson ultimately ran away with it.
