Rotographs June Consensus Ranks: Second Base

The key word for second base is: close. When it comes to the top three, apparently the rest-of-season projections have changed the order daily over the past three days. Jeff Zimmerman had to call it, at some point, and it was Jose Altuve by the slimmest of margins.

For me, the closest rankings came later.

If you add stolen bases to homers (they have similar value, actually), you could say that basically between the eleventh- and fifteenth-ranked second basemen, you’ve got a bunch of players that are projected to hit around .260 with 18 or so homers plus stolen bases. Not quite catcher-dom, but close.

Of course there are some guys beyond that ranking that have the upside to join. I like Anthony Rendon, Jed Lowrie and Rougned Odor a little more than most. Jeff likes DJ LeMahieu‘s batting average skills. Zach maybe thinks that Kolten Wong will steal some bases. Mike likes Omar Infante — you’ll have to let him say why. This position doesn’t *quite* dry up after the top 15, so that counts as good news.

Again, this is for 5×5 roto, and though Jeff Zimmerman mostly uses the rest of season projections, it’s not just a computer ranking. We’ve left off the color coding in favor of a simple up or down arrow — those arrows are only next to big movers. The table is designed to be sortable in case you prefer one of the rankings.
