June Shortstop Rankings

Here is the June edition of my rest-of-season position rankings and overall top 300 for 5x5 leagues. Sorry that I’m a couple of days late, but I had to find a new No. 1 overall player. Also, it turns out that there are only like 120 players in the majors capable of hitting right now, even though most of the best pitchers are injured.

Dropping off: Blaze Alexander (35th), Ernie Clement (45th), Adalberto Mondesi (48th)

  • I’m having late second thoughts about dropping Blaze Alexander from the rankings, but Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo clearly doesn’t like him at shortstop and also doesn’t seem interested in playing him when he’s not forcing the issue, like he is during his current hot streak. With Geraldo Perdomo and Jordan Lawlar on the way back, I probably won’t particularly regret leaving Alexander off (I keep telling myself).
