Second Base
1. Top ten overall second basemen

Chase Utley is the leader, but can Ian Kinsler close the gap... We could use that data viz again to show the strength of the improving second base position, second only to first base.

Kinsler and No. 10 Kendrick are in your top five 27-year-olds at second base...

1. Ian Kinsler, TEX

4. Third 10

Emack, you said second base is stronger and deeper than ever, but will the 20-30 matter in most Fantasy leagues?

24 Chris Getz  KC  *
25 Eugenio Velez  SF 
26 Kazuo Matsui  HOU
