Fantasy Baseball: Oakland Athletics Infielders

4 of 7

Second Base:

Ben Zobrist – I already briefly mentioned Zobrist, and if you don’t already know what he brings to the table, here are some notes about what he brings to the table from’s Tristan H. Cockcroft:

"“For those on-base percentage-over-batting average leagues, only one player has managed at least 70 home runs, 70 stolen bases and 400 walks in the past five seasons combined: Ben Zobrist. Three players, meanwhile, have managed double-digit home runs and stolen bases in each of the past six seasons: Andrew McCutchen, Hanley Ramirez and Zobrist.”"

He is in the decline phase of career, but his versatility and overall quality still make him an asset even in shallow leagues. He’s the 14th second baseman, 10th shortstop, and 46th outfielder in’s rotisserie rankings. He is currently owned in all ESPN leagues and is being drafted in the top 150 players. Make him a target starting in round 9 or 10.

Next: Shortstop
