Third Baseman Rankings

Next up, our third baseman rankings for 12-team mixed 5x5 leagues using 14 hitters (including one 3B and a CI) and 9 pitchers.  I moved the games played requirement from 20 to 10 to gel with Yahoo leagues.  Average draft round is in parentheses.

  1. Alex Rodriguez (1) - $27.55
  2. David Wright (2) - $22.74
  3. Evan Longoria (1) - $20.11
  4. Mark Reynolds (2) - $18.19
  5. Ryan Zimmerman (3) - $16.19
  6. Kevin Youkilis (3) - $14.80
  7. Pablo Sandoval (4) - $14.38
  8. Chone Figgins (7) - $12.72
  9. Aramis Ramirez (6) - $11.81
  10. Gordon Beckham (8) - $10.42
  11. Ian Stewart (11) - $8.10
  12. Michael Young (8) - $7.19
  13. Adrian Beltre (16) - $5.52
  14. Jorge Cantu (15) - $4.49
  15. Martin Prado (20) - $4.35
  16. Alex Gordon (19) - $4.21 
  17. Mark DeRosa (21) - $3.78
  18. Chipper Jones (12) - $3.32
  19. Garrett Atkins (24) - $2.79
  20. Kevin Kouzmanoff (28) - $2.28
  21. Jake Fox (28) - $2.22
  22. Chase Headley (21) - $0.11
  23. Edwin Encarnacion (27) - $0.03
  24. Jhonny Peralta (18) - $0.03

Aramis has a 525 AB projection; 575 would boost him above Youkilis.  Beckham is a solid upside pick with position flexibility, as he'll play second base for the Sox.  Stewart is projected at 520 ABs and would move up a few spots with more.

Beltre, Gordon, and Fox are some later picks that could be mild sleepers.  Chipper in the 12th round, not a fan.
