Rajai Davis, Blue Jays: With the demotion of Eric Thames, a clear path to regular playing time has been cleared for Davis, a legendary fantasy rabbit. He stole 34 bags during his partial 2011 campaign. And with 10 already this year, it wouldn't be shocking to see him challenge or exceed that total.
Quintin Berry, Tigers: Since his May 23rd promotion, Berry has been on fire with the stick (.362), which has allowed him to run wild on the bases (six SB). He had 19 steals at Triple-A prior to his call-up, and also stole 42 bases in the upper minors in '11 while with the Reds.
Everth Cabrera, Padres: Cabrera has been seeing regular playing time for almost three weeks now, and has collected four steals during that time. While he's never been very menacing with the stick, if he can hit enough there's a chance he can replicate on the bases the success he had back in '09, when he stole 25 bases. He's a cheap speed play in deep formats, so go and roll those dice.
Jarrod Dyson, Royals: He's been great during the past week, batting .333 with two steals. Dyson can be a streaky hitter, but one who can cause chaos on the bases when he gets on, evident by his eight steals on the season. He collected 49 steals last season between the Royals and their Triple-A Omaha affiliate, so the wheels are certainly legit.
Juan Pierre, Phillies: Pierre is looking revived with the Phillies, posting a .329 batting average through the weekend with eight steals. More importantly, he's only been caught two times, which is a huge improvement over his '11 performance (27-for-44). He's hitting near the top of the Phillies lineup, which is uncharacteristically weak but run-scoring opportunities should still be plentiful for the speedy outfielder.
