Peralta Moves to the Producer's Chair

Jhust don't stand there, Jhump on him! Indians shortstop Jhonny Peralta's move to the 3-hole in the power-packed Cleveland batting order makes him one of the best middle-infield picks in the majors. Can you say superstar? Just 23, he already burst onto the scene last year by hitting .292 with 24 HR. Now the Indians are only better and he'll be batting between Grady Sizemore and Jason Michaels at No. 1 and 2, and Travis Hafner and Victor Martinez at 4 and 5. Look for a significant uptick in average, RBI, runs scored and homers.
