MLB Position Power Rankings 2018: B/R’s Top 30 Shortstops

Ahead, we've set out to identify the top 30 shortstops in the league heading into the 2018 season.

A few things to consider before we get started:

  • League averages: For the sake of reference, the league average triple-slash line for a shortstop last season was .263/.318/.415.
  • Eligibility: To be considered for inclusion, a player must have played at least 300 innings at shortstop last season. Exceptions were made for an expected position change (no Zack Cozart) and a prospect (J.P. Crawford).

For fantasy baseball fans, think of this as a big board of the position if the entire league was doing a redraft for one all-or-nothing season in 2018.

Someone like Amed Rosario has more upside than Jordy Mercer going forward, but is he going to be better this coming year?

Let's find out.
