With less than two months remaining until the 2020 regular season, we have been taking a look at the projected starters at each position. After ranking the second basemen in the American League, let’s do likewise for those in the Senior Circuit.

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


Ketel Marte, Diamondbacks

What a breakout 2019 season it was for Marte as he finished fourth in NL MVP voting. The 26-year-old hit .329 with a .981 OPS, 32 homers, and 36 doubles. He manned center field about twice as much as second base last year, but should mostly stay in the infield in 2020 with the addition of Starling Marte.


Ozzie Albies, Braves

In his third season last year, Albies won his first Silver Slugger. His excellent year at the plate consisted of a .295 batting average, .852 OPS, 24 homers, 43 doubles, 102 runs, and 15 stolen bases. He’s also as sure-handed as they come in the field making just four errors in 2019.
