C — 1B — 2B — 3B — SS — OF — SP — RP — Top 10
Chris Owings – Ari – SS
Earning his major league debut with a September call-up to finish out the 2013 season, Owings hit a cozy .291 batting average over 55 at bats with the Diamondbacks. Showcasing lots of power hitting ability during his time in the minor leagues, including a 2013 season that included 12 home runs, 81 RBI, 20 stolen bases, and a .330 batting average at Triple A, the 22 year old Owings will look to take over the Diamondbacks starting shortstop job in 2014. A rookie of the year award could definitely be in store for this offensive minded shortstop.
Alexander Guerrero – LAD – SS/2B
A key offseason signing for the Dodgers, Guerrero who previously played in Cuba, will look to take over as the starting second baseman for the Dodgers. After tallying a stat line that included a .290 batting average, .402 on base percentage, and .576 slugging percentage, there is no denying the offensive potential that Guerrero could provide fantasy baseball teams in 2014.
Addison Russell – Oak – SS
The 11th overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft, Russell has already shown an ability to hit for power and steal bases, as he racked up 17 home runs and 21 stolen bases in the minors during the 2013 season. At just 20 years old, the Athletics will not want to rush Russell, so he will likely start the 2014 season at Triple A. However, if Russell shows he can handle the pitching there, then a mid-season call-up to Oakland could definitely be in store.
