C — 1B — 2B — 3B — SS — OF — SP — RP — Top 10
Scooter Gennett – Mil – 2B
Taking over for the injured Rickie Weeks, Gennett excelled during his major league debut season in 2013. Always displaying an ability to hit for average during his time in the minors, Gennett exceeded all realistic expectations as he tallied an outstanding .324 batting average over 213 at bats with the Brewers during his rookie season. If the 23 year old Gennett can hold off Rickie Weeks for the starting second base spot, he could rack up 5-10 home runs, 10-15 stolen bases, and a batting average hovering around .300. Add in the possibility of Gennett hitting leadoff or second atop the Brewers lineup, and there is excellent overall value for any fantasy baseball team to get out of this young second baseman.
Derek Dietrich – Mia – 2B
Showcasing his ability to hit for power, Dietrich notched a solid 9 home runs over 215 at bats in his rookie season with the Marlins in 2013. With 3 minor league seasons of double digit home run totals under his belt, the second base eligible Dietrich could offer surprising value in fantasy baseball leagues in 2014.
Jemile Weeks – Bal – 2B
After an outstanding rookie season in 2011 where Weeks tallied 22 stolen bases and a .303 batting average, he fell off the major league scene during the 2012 and 2013 seasons as he was demoted to playing in the minors. However, with an offseason trade to the second baseman needy Baltimore Orioles, Weeks will have an opportunity to take over the starting second base job if he can get his swing back.
