So I've decided I'm willing to tier Elvis Andrus with Corey Seager and Alex Bregman, and the truth is he was the best of the three last year. He'll almost certainly be the last of the three to be drafted -- and deserves to be given his track record -- but the point is he's a priority in that Round 6 range.

This is still the weakest position apart from catcher, and in fact, the first four tiers at catcher are actually one player deeper. The shortstop tiers are a little more clearly defined, though, and the contributions a little more diverse, making it the higher priority of the two positions.

If you're hurting for steals, Tim Anderson and Amed Rosario are a couple late-round options who could help in that area.
