Top prospects: C | 1B | 2B | 3B

Think second base is deep enough already? Well, too bad.

No fewer than five of these prospects have a chance of beginning 2015 in the majors. And that's with Mookie Betts, Kolten Wong, Rougned Odor, Jonathan Schoop and Tommy La Stella graduating from last year's list.

We're to the point where instead of introducing tweener hitters to the position in the hope of enhancing their value, organizations are moving capable fielders off it just to clear up the logjam. We saw it last year with Betts, as well as the yet-to-graduate Eddie Rosario and Delino DeShields.

Still, for all the depth at the position, second base is surprisingly lacking in elite prospects, assured face-of-the-franchise types who would demand a king's ransom on the trade market. Given that distribution of talent, it's not a priority in dynasty leagues right now.

Then again, since it has a higher-than-usual number of prospects on the verge of contributing, it probably deserves more attention than ever in redraft leagues.

Note: This list has been adjusted for Fantasy purposes. Though long-term potential is a factor, it's arguably less important than the player's expected role in 2015. These prospects don't all profile as superstars, but they're the names most worth knowing in Fantasy right now.

1. Devon Travis, 24, Blue Jays
Where played in 2014: Double-A
Minor-league stats: .298 BA (396 at-bats), 10 HR, 16 SB, .817 OPS, 37 BB, 60 K

Ian Kinsler may have held Travis back in Detroit, but second base is wide open in Toronto (which is exactly why the Blue Jays traded for him). He's kind of in the Kolten Wong mold -- a high-contact type who does a little of everything but won't carry you in any one category.

2. Dilson Herrera, 21, Mets
Where played in 2014: high Class A, Double-A, majors
Minor-league stats: .323 BA, 13 HR, 33 2B, 23 SB, .858 OPS, 47 BB, 96 K
Major-league stats: .220 (59 at-bats), 3 HR, .710 OPS, 7 BB, 17 K

At age 21, the range of potential outcomes for Herrera is vast, but he showed enough pop and plate discipline during a breakout 2014 to make stardom a legitimate possibility. His quick ascension to the majors may have been too much, too fast, though. We'll see how the Mets' offseason goes.

3. Jose Peraza, 20, Braves
Where played in 2014: high Class A, Double-A
Minor-league stats: .339 BA, 2 HR, 60 SB, .806 OPS, 17 BB, 47 K

Peraza's stock skyrocketed in 2014 as he seemingly put everything in play at a level of the minors where that actually means something -- an especially good quality for a player with his speed. He'll probably work his way into the Braves lineup at some point this year, but since he offers nothing in the way of power or plate discipline, he has a thin margin for error.

4. Micah Johnson, 24, White Sox
Where played in 2014: Double-A, Triple-A
Minor-league stats: .294 BA (419 at-bats), 5 HR, 22 SB, .754 OPS, 37 BB, 69 K

Johnson has tantalizing tools but hasn't always gotten the most out of them, a hamstring injury contributing to a drop from 84 steals in 2013 to 22 (in 35 attempts) last year. He's hit well enough to battle Marcus Semien and Carlos Sanchez for time at second base this spring, but he may wind up back at Triple-A to learn the outfield.

5. Robert Refsnyder, 24, Yankees
Where played in 2014: Double-A, Triple-A
Minor-league stats: .318 BA, 14 HR, 38 2B, .884 OPS, 55 BB, 105 K

Passed over for a promotion when the Yankees had a clear opening in the second half, Refsnyder still isn't on their 40-man roster, but it's only a matter of time before he becomes their starting second baseman after emerging as the best pure hitter in their system. He's more geared for average than power, but he'll hit more home runs than, say, Joe Panik.

6. Tony Kemp, 23, Astros
Where played in 2014: high Class A, Double-A
Minor-league stats: .316 BA, 8 HR, 30 2B, 41 SB, .859 OPS, 73 BB, 67 K

All those things you'd like to see a speedster do, Kemp does, proving himself as both an on-base guy and contact hitter at high Class A Lancaster and then proving it wasn't just a function of the California League at Double-A Corpus Christi. Jose Altuve may force him to the outfield, but in a system loaded with prospects, Kemp now stands out.

7. Sean Coyle, 23, Red Sox
Where played in 2014: Double-A
Minor-league stats: .295 BA (336 at-bats), 16 HR, 13 SB, .883 OPS, 38 BB, 95 K

Coyle can run and has always had surprising power for a player his size, but he became more of an all-around hitter in 2014. He's also capable of playing third base, but the Red Sox are so deep at both positions that he may not be particularly close to contributing in the majors.

8. Ryan Brett, 23, Rays
Where played in 2014: Double-A
Minor-league stats: .303 BA (422 at-bats), 8 HR, 27 SB, .794 OPS, 24 BB, 74 K

Brett is one of those blue-collar types whose sum figures to be greater than his parts. Since he doesn't quite have Travis' contact profile or extra-base pop, his value may ultimately depend on how willing the Rays are to let him run, but he's good enough to take over for them at second base once Ben Zobrist leaves.

9. Forrest Wall, 19, Rockies
Where played in 2014: Rookie
Minor-league stats: .318 BA (157 at-bats), 3 HR, 18 SB, .907 OPS, 27 BB, 32 K

A rare example of a prospect destined for second base from the get-go after having surgery to repair a torn labrum in high school, Wall is also one of a select few worth hyping in Fantasy even years before his projected arrival. The scouts love his bat, and he proved in his professional debut he can run as well.

10. Jose Pirela, 25, Yankees
Where played in 2014: Triple-A, majors
Minor-league stats: .305 BA, 10 HR, 21 2B, 11 3B, 15 SB, .792 OPS, 37 BB, 74 K
Major-league stats: .333 BA (24 at-bats), 1 2B, 2 3B, .902, 1 BB, 4 K

Pirela probably isn't what you picture when you hear the word "prospect." But he's technically a rookie, and if the Yankees decide to hold back Refsnyder, he could find himself playing extensively in the early going. His versatility and extra-base pop could make him this year's Yangervis Solarte.
