2018 Top 10 Shortstops Under 30

I suppose when 9 out of every 10 starting shortstops are under the age of 30 you have to be a pretty elite defender to hold that job past the slightest sign of decreased ability. Not many guys can hang on like an Ozzie Smith or Omar Vizquel. That being said I cant honestly say that i would be displeased having any of the 10 players below as my starting short stop this year It used to be such a wasteland of mediocre offensive stats once you got past the first tier of players years back.

If I must i’d say …

Tier 1: Machado-Turner

Tier 2: Seager-Bogaerts

Tier 3: Gregorious-Story

My top 10 list and projections are below.

 

  • Manny Machado, 25, Orioles – My projections for 2018 are – .291/96/35/92/10
  • Carlos Correa, 23, Astros – My projections for 2018 are – .291/95/27/90/8
