2019 Second Base Rankings: Top 30

The Fake Teams writers give you their top options at the keystone.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday we unleashed the Top 15, but unfortunately Mark’s ranks were not recognized. Silly formatting. Anyway, today we have the full Top 30, in lieu of just offering a Part 2. Today you can see Part 1 and Part 2 together. Can I get an amen?

Aside from the men listed below, other notable vote-getters (read: min picks) were Franklin Barreto (Mark: 19th), Keston Hiura (Zack, 20th), and Joe Panik (Joe: 22nd).

Be sure to vote in the poll below to break our five-way tie for our No. 22 second baseman!
