Third base tiers for Draft Day 2014
There are some elite options at the hot corner for owners to consider on Draft Day, but the position thins out very quickly. Our Scott White shares his tiers and strategies for third base.
|Written off by the Marlins, who loved his glove but weren't convinced he'd ever amount to anything with the bat, Matt Dominguez got a chance to get comfortable with the Astros last year and showed that he might just be a long-term option for them. His 21 home runs, the first of which came May 11 -- again, after he had a chance to get comfortable -- were eighth-most among third basemen. Granted, that's about all he had to offer offensively -- he's not especially disciplined, won't hit bunches of doubles and doesn't run -- but at a time when home runs are becoming more and more scarce, that's something. Most likely, Dominguez won't get drafted in mixed leagues, but in terms of projected output, he's not so far off from the Nolan Arenado, Will Middlebrooks and Mike Moustakas types who do, even if he doesn't have quite the same upside.
