2011 MLB Player Values: Third Base

2011 MLB Player Values: Third Base

Next up on our player values and basic projections (BA, HR, RBI, R, SB) is third baseman.   Ranking third base showed that we could be seeing a changing of the guard at third in 2011.  As always we will continue to update our 2011 spreadsheet it throughout Spring Training in preparation for your 2011 draft as we  go position-by-position.  The spreadsheet provides a helpful tool for navigating through the players at your draft.

Here are the top 30 third baseman and the updated version of our updated 2011 spreadsheet.  Feedback is always appreciated, so definitely let us know if you see players you think are valued too high or too low.
