  • So many of the quality second base options are listed with the shortstops, so this list gets really difficult to maintain after the top two. Ozzie Albies’ stock is down with him having been dropped from first to eighth in the Braves lineup and he has tumbled some in the top 300, but I’m still not sure I want to put him below any of these other guys. Daniel Murphy has had an ugly season to date, but the upside hasn’t gone anywhere. Rougned Odor is hitting .162, but he also has six homers and 18 RBI in 22 games this month, and it’s not like he can really hit .162 forever.
  • I’m still not as high on Nick Senzel’s bat as some, at least not for the short term, but that he’s attempted eight steals (converting five) in 23 games to date seems like a great sign for his fantasy value.
  • Keston Hiura’s .256/.304/.395 line since being called up is hardly a disaster, but the 19/1 K/BB ratio in 46 plate appearances is pretty hideous. I wouldn’t be quite as concerned about it if the Brewers didn’t have Travis Shaw possibly reemerging as an option. If Hiura can hold off Shaw, I suspect he’ll end up being useful in mixed leagues. It’s a situation that could go either way, though.
