Second Base has a bit more depth than I initially thought when I started working on my rankings. Depending on what your team will need from 2B, the players between 13 and 18 could all be changed up without much complaint.

I have included players who qualify on a 5 start limit (Yahoo standard), but mentioned if they fall under the 20 game limit which most of the other websites run with.

Here's my early Second Base Rankings for 2012:

1. Robinson Cano (NYY)

2. Ian Kinsler (TEX)

3. Dustin Pedroia (BOS)

4. Dan Uggla (ATL)

5. Chase Utley (PHI)

6. Brandon Phillips (CIN)

7. Rickie Weeks (MIL)

8. Ben Zobrist (TAM)

9. Howie Kendrick (LAA)

10. Michael Young (TEX) - [14 starts at 2B this season]

11. Dustin Ackley (SEA)

12. Aaron Hill (FA)

13. Jason Kipnis (CLE)

14. Jemile Weeks (OAK)

15. Danny Espinosa (WAS)

16. Kelly Johnson (FA)

17. Allen Craig (STL) - [8 starts at 2B this season]

18. Ryan Roberts (ARI)

19. Neil Walker (PIT)

20. Brian Roberts (BAL)
