Any Information on Defensive Performance?

I know the season is young, and I know someone will say "it's a small sample size", but is there any good statistical information on this year's defense? Just watching the games, it definitely appears that the defense has been much better YTD compared to last year (at least at particular positions). I would really like to see how much more Escobar has been "worth" to the Royals over Betancourt, even with a lower offensive numbers.

In particular, what are the early returns on:

1) Escobar vs. Betancourt

2) 2011 outfield vs. 2010 outfield

3) 2011 second base defense vs. 2010 second base defense

4) 2011 first base defense vs. 2010 first base defense


If it is not realistic to run comparisons at this time, no problem. I really appreciate any information that anyone may have. Thanks!
