Ranking second basemen for 2015
Ranking the second basemen for the 2015 season, and our Scott White says the position just isn't as deep as it was.
|For the first time in three seasons, Ben Zobrist failed to hit 20 home runs (he hit 12). While his average (.275) was the highest since 2009, Zobrist saw decreases in doubles, triples, steals, walks and OPS, despite enjoying a career-high 612 at-bats. While his OBP was down from 2012, Zobrist still got on base at exactly his career rate (.354). And his doubles were only three fewer than his 2012 total. Plus, Zobrist will carry triple eligibility into 2014, at outfield, shortstop, and second base -- giving a boost to his draft status. Zobrist has value in Points formats because of his doubles and walks, and can be taken in the early middle rounds. His value drops a bit in Roto leagues, though, where those categories only tangentially help his counting stats.
