2015 FANTASY BASEBALL: TOP 10 THIRD BASE

1. Adrian Beltre– It has been a very long career for Beltre but he is still getting the job done for the Rangers. He hit just 19 homers last season but also had a .324 batting average. Texas will be better this season and so will Beltre.

2. Josh Donaldson– It will be a new lineup for Donaldson with the Blue Jays but after a season with 29 homers in Oakland, a bigger year may even be possible. He is in his prime and is ready to hit 35 home runs in 2015 while batting around .275 for Toronto.

3. Todd Frazier– One of the most talented players in the Cincinnati lineup, Frazier hit 29 home runs last season while stealing 20 bases. Those two stats together make him worth a higher pick than what may be fully expected.

4. Nolan Arenado– He’s young and in Colorado. Two great factors that make Arenado a candidate for 25-30 home runs this coming year. He seems to be making more contact as well and is on pace for a .300 batting average.

5. Kyle Seager- If there is one player at the hot corner who may get lost in the shuffle, it would be Seager. He has hit at least 20 home runs in each of his last three seasons. He is reaching a point where 30 bombs and 100 RBI are going to be safe bets in 2015.

6. Evan Longoria– For the first time in his career, Longoria played in all 162 games last season with 22 homers and 91 RBI. There are better options on the board but 25-30 home runs in a bounceback season for power seems like a good guess.

7. Kris Bryant– There is plenty to be shocked about here. Bryant though and his 43 homers last season at the minor league level are going to make a major impact when he arrives for the Cubs. Don’t let him slip too far.

8. David Wright– The 2014 season is one that Wright would love to forget with just eight homers. It isn’t going to happen two straight years for the Mets. Wright will get back to hitting 15-20 homers while batting around .300 in 2015.

9. Matt Carpenter– It was a solid year last season with 162 hits and a .272 average but Carpenter wasn’t the same hitter from 2013. He will make contract and will probably get plenty of RBI chances in a strong Cardinals lineup.

10. Josh Harrison– Plenty of people are going to pay the price for Harrison after his 13 homer, 52 RBI, 18 steal and .315 batting season in 2014. Don’t do that. The versatility is nice but don’t extend too far to get Harrison this coming year.
