With less than two months until the start of the regular season, we have been taking a look at the projected starters at each position. After ranking the starting American League third basemen, let’s move on to the National League.

As a subjective list, many of the players can almost be considered interchangeable as to where they are ranked. Projected lineups were taken from Fangraphs.

1

Nolan Arenado, Rockies

Arenado has been in the big leagues for seven years. He has seven Gold Gloves. The premier defensive third baseman isn’t too shabby at the plate either. He’s won four Silver Sluggers and hit .315 with a .962 OPS and 41 home runs in 2019. Arenado has finished no lower than eighth in NL MVP voting since 2015.

2

Eugenio Suárez, Reds

Suárez had a magnificent 2019 and finished 15th in NL MVP voting. The 28-year-old clobbered 49 homers, drove in 103 runs, and posted a .930 OPS. He can be a tad error-prone but is far from a liability manning the hot corner.
