September Third Baseman Ranks

Rotoworld

Welcome to the September third baseman rankings. As always, players are ranked based on how I believe they will perform in 5x5 scoring over the rest of the season. I try to list players at the positions at which they're most valuable, so if you can't find that second baseman you're looking for, check shortstop instead. Included along with the position rankings you'll find a fully updated top 300 list.

Third Baseman Rankings


Dropping off: Dropping off: Brandon Snyder (No, 38), Brent Morel (No. 40)

  • There wasn't any real thought to dropping the banged up Miguel Cabrera out of the top spot here, but he did fall behind Mike Trout in the top 300 because of his injuries. The Tigers have enough cushion to give him as much rest as they'd like down the stretch, but he's still swinging the bat so well that he can miss a few more games and still be one of September's top players.
  • Andy Dirks has picked it up of late, so I don't expect that Nick Castellanos will get to take over as Detroit's left fielder. He's also not a candidate to fill in for Cabrera, as he didn't play a single game anywhere other than left in Triple-A this year. Castellanos finished up at .276/.343/.450 at Toledo, which wouldn't seem to make him any better of a bet than Dirks anyway.
  • I can't rank Chris Coghlan with the third basemen just yet, but that will probably be his position in Miami for most of September. He's come in at No. 34 here.
